[via press release from HBO]

HBO COMEDY SERIES HOW TO MAKE IT IN AMERICA, STARRING BRYAN GREENBERG, VICTOR RASUK, LUIS GUZMAN, LAKE BELL AND SCOTT MESCUDI, RETURNS FOR ITS EIGHT-EPISODE SECOND SEASON OCT. 2

Who will you become to get what you want? That's the question facing enterprising twentysomethings Ben and Cam, as they continue to pound the pavement in New York to make their dreams come true.

Kicking off its eight-episode second season SUNDAY, OCT. 2 (10:30-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), HOW TO MAKE IT IN AMERICA stars Bryan Greenberg ("Prime," HBO's "Unscripted"), Victor Rasuk ("Lords of Dogtown," "Raising Victor Vargas"), Luis Guzman ("Anger Management," HBO's "OZ"), Lake Bell ("Children's Hospital," "What Happens in Vegas"), hit recording artist Scott Mescudi aka Kid Cudi ("Day and Night," "Poke Her Face") and Eddie Kaye Thomas ("Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist," "American Pie"). series creator Ian Edelman, Stephen Levinson, Mark Wahlberg, Julian Farino, Rob Weiss and Jill Soloway executive produce.

Back in New York after a potentially lucrative trip to Japan, Ben Epstein (Bryan Greenberg) and Cam Calderon (Victor Rasuk) hit the ground running, hustling for every opportunity. The partners scour the downtown scene for new business connections, following every lead they can to get noticed in the ultra-competitive fashion industry and make headway with CRISP, their homemade fashion line of T-shirts and hoodies. As the stakes get higher, these charming entrepreneurs confront new obstacles in New York City, determined to achieve the American Dream.

Meanwhile, Ben's ex-girlfriend Rachel (Lake Bell) has returned to New York transformed by a trip to Africa and Europe; Cam's cousin Rene (Luis Guzman) is pursuing a get-rich scheme by marketing his Rasta Monsta energy drink; Domingo (Scott Mescudi aka Kid Cudi), Cam and Ben's well-connected friend, is developing his own "entrepreneurial" business; and successful hedge fund manager David Kaplan (Eddie Kaye Thomas) is a big supporter of Ben and Cam's venture. Attempting to negotiate turbulent romantic waters, Ben finds his relationship with his girlfriend, Julie (Margarita Levieva), tested by Rachel's return, while Cam lands a new girlfriend, Lulu (Nicole Laliberte), who owns a clothing store.

This season's guest stars include Gina Gershon (HBO's "Eastbound & Down) as an influential fashion rep, Andre Royo (HBO's "The Wire"), Joe Pantoliano (HBO's "The Sopranos"), James Ransone (HBO's "Generation Kill"), Eriq LaSalle ("ER"), fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi and others.

Ben (Bryan Greenberg) and Cam (Victor Rasuk) return to NYC from a successful trip to Tokyo full of optimism - and with duffle bags of hoodies for a CRISP pop-up store event. Back from her soul-searching globe-trot, Rachel (Lake Bell) realizes she still has feelings for Ben, but discovers he's seeing Julie (Margarita Levieva). Rene (Luis Guzman) puts up a head-turning Rasta Monsta billboard that incenses his girlfriend; Domingo (Scott Mescudi aka Kid Cudi) expands his business beyond dog-walking.

Ben and Cam find themselves stuck between their new sales rep and a hard place when they have the opportunity to crash a brunch hosted by the well-connected Nancy Frankenburg (Gina Gershon). On the personal front, Cam is determined to move out of his grandmother's place, and Ben makes an indifferent step toward commitment by giving Julie his spare key. Rene leans on an indebted client to pay up, but not with money; Rachel lands a new job at Biscuit magazine, and lights up with Domingo.

Written by Jill Soloway; directed by Julian Farino.

Episode #11: "Money, Power, Private School"

Debut: SUNDAY, OCT. 16 (10:30-11:00 p.m.)

Fashion rep Nancy lands CRISP a promising gig, though not for the money or clientele Ben and Cam had hoped for. Rachel bestows a lavish gift on Ben after learning that he and Julie may be parting ways. Cam goes into the dealing business with Domingo to help raise money for a river view apartment. Rene shoots a Rasta Monsta viral video with Wilfredo Gomez (Javier Nunez), and gets closer to his girlfriend Debbie (Andrea Navedo).

Written by Vince Calandra; directed by Simon Cellan Jones.

Debut: SUNDAY, OCT. 23 (10:30-11:00 p.m.)

At an upstate wedding, Ben's platonic friendship with Rachel is tested by nostalgia - and a revelation about the new guy she's been seeing. Meanwhile, Kapo (Eddie Kay Thomas) stresses about speaking from the heart in his best-man speech. Cam charms Lulu's (Nicole Laliberte) dad (Joe Pantoliano) to secure the perfect location (and an unlikely model) for CRISP's new "lookbook" photo shoot. Rene seeks to collect on a debt to cover the costs of Rasta Monsta's expanding business (and to buy bling for Debbie).

Written by Seth Zvi Rosenfeld; directed by Julian Farino.

Other HBO playdate: Oct. 30 (12:30 a.m.)

After Nancy puts the kibosh on getting CRISP into a large midwestern retailer, Ben and Cam take matters into their own hands to charm its young out-of-town buyers. Rene tries to make amends with Debbie and prove he can be a stable family man; Rachel goes from feeling lost at Biscuit to alive in Bushwick, all in a single day.

Written by Arty Nelson & Donal Lardner Ward; directed by Miguel Arteta.
