SHOWTIME is also currently offering the series premiere of I'M DYING UP HERE for free on YouTube and SHO.com and across multiple television and streaming providers' devices, websites and applications and their free On Demand channels, ahead of its debut on air this Sunday, June 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The second episode of I'M DYING UP HERE will be available early only to subscribers starting at 10 p.m. ET on SHOWTIME ANYTIME, via affiliate online platforms and the SHOWTIME stand-alone streaming service and streaming service providers. The second episode will be available at midnight on SHOWTIME ON DEMAND.

The fictional series explores L.A.'s famed '70s stand-up comedy scene and stars Academy Award(R) winner Melissa Leo (The Fighter, Treme), Ari Graynor (Bad Teacher), Michael Angarano (The Knick), Clark Duke (Hot Tub Time Machine), Andrew Santino (Mixology), Erik Griffin (Workaholics), RJ Cyler (Power Rangers), Al Madrigal (The Daily Show) and Jake Lacy (Obvious Child) as part of a large ensemble cast. The series is created and executive produced by Dave Flebotte and executive produced by Golden Globe winner Jim Carrey, Michael Aguilar and Christina Wayne. I'M DYING UP HERE delves into the inspired, damaged and complicated psyches of those who stand alone in front of an audience "dying" for fame, fortune and, with any luck, a shot on Johnny Carson. This fictional group of competitive but close-knit comedians is mentored by "Goldie" (Leo), a brassy comedy club owner who rules over her business with an iron fist, but nurtures her comedians with tough love. For Goldie and her crew, there's truly no such thing as an easy laugh. Produced by SHOWTIME, the series is based on the non-fiction book of the same name by William Knoedelseder. The pilot was written by Flebotte and directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50, Warm Bodies).
