Judd Apatow’s ‘Crashing’ Ordered to Series by HBO; Pete Holmes Stars


Judd Apatow, who has served as the executive producer for HBO’s Girls since its inception, has just landed another series at the premium channel. Crashing, as it has been titled, will focus on a recently separated, kind-hearted comedian who, after being left by his wife, is forced to couch-surf in the homes of some of New York’s finest comics.

Pete Holmes acts as the show’s star and also wrote the Apatow-directed pilot, which was ordered last September. The two of them will executive produce together, with other production credits going to Dave Rath, Josh Church, and Igor Srubshchik; Oren Brimer will serve as the show’s co-producer.

Premiere dates have yet to be revealed, but if you’re desperate for some Apatow-for-HBO enjoyment in the meantime, get ready for the Girls season five premiere, which airs on HBO on February 21, 2016. You can watch the trailer for that here.
