For those that just can’t wait for Sunday’s premiere of HBO’s How to Make It in America, the pilot episode has been leaked onto YouTube.
The show is a kind of east coast version of Entourage, minus the money and sunshine. It follows a couple of struggling young New York guys, Ben (One Tree Hill’s Bryan Greenberg) and Cam (Lords of Dogtown’s Victor Rasuk), and their buddies (including rapper Scott ”Kid Cudi” Mescudi as Domingo) as they try to hustle their way to wealth. As the show begins, Ben is folding jeans at Barneys for a living but wants to run his own denim empire which he thinks will help him win back the girl of his dreams (Boston Legal’s Lake Bell).
The show is funny, maybe not as funny as Entourage, but it makes up for it in charm. The show is produced by Mark Wahlberg and Rob Weiss, who also produced Entourage. Critics say that it takes a few episodes for the show to warm up so even if the pilot below doesn’t draw you in, give it another try, because it does seem to have potential.
