How To Make It In America is quite possible the straightest show you'll see about breaking into the fashion industry. It's hip hop and chest bumps instead of Lady Gaga and air kisses. But still, it's a good watch. Plus watching Bryan Greenberg (who plays Ben Epstein) take his shirt off multiple times so he can promote his 'Crisp' hoodies and tees is a nice perk.
Season 2 kicked off last Sunday on HBO, and tonight's episode actually showcases a gay! Designer Issac Mizrahi makes a cameo, dispensing a few pearls of wisdom for the young, hungry Ben and Cam, who are digging for their big break into fashion.
Add that to the appearance of smoldering Gina Gershon as a Barney's exec. who the boys are dying to pitch to, and you've got yourself an episode!
See the Season 2 trailer below, and check the episode tonight at 10:30 on HBO.
