Watch the trailer for Crashing below. The show premieres Sunday, February 19 at 10:30pm on HBO.
Comedian Pete Holmes has risen in the ranks through his stellar stand-up and endearingly honest podcast You Made It Weird. He’s been nothing but open about his divorce and that led to him creating a single-camera comedy pilot directed by comedy mastermind Judd Apatow. HBO gave Crashing the green light and Holmes proceeded to write ten episodes for the show, which will be semi-autobiographical focusing on his wife leaving him and how he got through it with the help of his fellow comedians.
Holmes and Apatow have a history, Apatow has appeared on not only Holmes’ podcast, but also his short lived late night talker The Pete Holmes Show.
