Season 1

How to Make It in America follows two enterprising Brooklyn twenty-somethings as they hustle their way through New York City, determined to achieve the American Dream.

Trying to make a name for themselves in New York's competitive fashion scene, Ben Epstein (Bryan Greenberg) and his friend and business partner Cam Calderon (Victor Rasuk) use their street knowledge and connections to bring their ambitions to fruition.

With the help of Cam's cousin Rene (Luis Guzman), who is trying to market his own high-energy drink called Rasta Monsta, and their well-connected friend Domingo (Kid Cudi), the entrepreneurs set out to make it big, encountering obstacles along the way that will require all their ingenuity to overcome.

How to Make It in America also stars Lake Bell as Ben's ex-girlfriend Rachel, who is concentrating on her own career and a new relationship; Martha Plimpton as Rachel's boss Edie, an eccentric interior designer; Shannyn Sossamon as Gingy, Ben and Cam's artsy friend; and Eddie Kaye Thomas as David Kaplan, a successful hedge fund manager and high school friend of Ben's.

Creator and first-time writer Ian Edelman collaborated with Emmy nominee Rob Weiss (Entourage) on many of the show's scripts. The pilot and other episodes of the show were directed by Julian Farino.

How to Make It in America is produced by HBO Entertainment with executive producers Stephen Levinson, Rob Weiss, Ian Edelman, Julian Farino, Jada Miranda and Mark Wahlberg; and producer Jane Raab.
