HBO’s newest series, How to Make It in America, officially debuts on Valentine’s Day, but they’ve already leaked the pilot online. The show — which stars Bryan Greenberg and Victor Rasuk — focuses on two New York City guys in their twenties who are trying to break into the fashion industries; art galleries, plaid flannels, and Wilhelmina models all naturally figure in. Executive producers include Rob Weiss (who inspired the insane director, Billy Walsh of Entourage), Mark Wahlberg, and creator Ian Edelman, among others.
Watch the pilot, and then download “How to Make it In America: The Mixtape” courtesy of KiD CuDi (who also stars), DJ Green Lantern & Broke Mogul (DECON) after the jump.
