Pete Holmes’ HBO ‘Crashing’ Pays Tribute to ‘The Wire’ in New Trailer
HBO’s most recent comedies haven’t proven the commercial breakthrough that Westworld was for drama, and it may take some big names for Judd Apatow and Pete Holmes’ Crashing to get there. The newest trailer bring out both Sarah Silverman and T.J. Miller, also namedropping everything from Chris Rock to The Wire.
Premiering on February 19 after Girls Season 6, Crashing today got a second trailer, likening Holmes’ character’s effort to move comedy club flyers to some familiar Wire lingo. The series marks Holmes’ return to TV after TBS’ The Pete Holmes Show, while the synopsis reads:
The show was created by and stars Pete Holmes as a standup comic who discovers that his wife is unfaithful, leading him to reevaluate his life amidst the New York City comedy scene. Artie Lange, Lauren Lapkus and T.J. Miller also star. Executive produced by Judd Apatow and Pete Holmes.
The new series will bow on February 19 at 10:30 P.M., while the final season of Girls will actually premiere one week earlier on February 12. Check out the first Crashing trailer below, and stay tuned for more toward the February premiere.
