(from HBO's press release, October 2015) HBO Films' THE LEISURE CLASS, directed by Jason Mann, this season's "Project Greenlight" winner, debuts MONDAY, NOV. 2 (10:00-11:30 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO, the day after the season finale of "Project Greenlight" debuts, on Sunday, Nov. 1. THE LEISURE CLASS is the end product of the current season of "Project Greenlight," which takes a revealing, uncensored look at the challenges facing a first-time director. The eight-episode fourth season, which launched Sept. 13 on HBO, began with a digital competition, as thousands of aspiring filmmakers submitted three-minute short films via a Facebook page. The pool of 5000 contestants eventually narrowed to 13 finalists, each of whom was given a scene to direct for their final project, based on a script provided to them. Jason Mann bested the competition and was chosen the winner. In addition to making his directorial debut, Mann co-wrote the screenplay of the film with Pete Jones. THE LEISURE CLASS revolves around William, a debonair Englishman celebrating his imminent marriage to Fiona, the beautiful daughter of a U.S. senator and prominent East Coast family. But William is a con man; his identity is fake and his intent is to embezzle funds from the senator's charitable organization. Unexpectedly, William realizes he has true feelings for Fiona and now regrets his predicament.
