COMEDY SERIES "CRASHING," CREATED BY AND STARRING PETE HOLMES, RETURNS FOR SECOND SEASON JAN. 14 ON HBO

Feeling lost in the universe, Pete has an enlightening conversation with an atheist, which sends him into a night of New York debauchery. This marks the beginning of a season in which he starts to question his faith and find his voice.

Created by and starring Pete Holmes, the comedy series CRASHING returns for its eight-episode second season SUNDAY, JAN. 14 (10:30-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO. Executive produced by Pete Holmes, Judd Apatow and Judah Miller, the series draws on Holmes' own experiences as a comedian, offering a behind-the-scenes look at the world of stand-up comedy.

With the help of Ali, a fellow rising comic, Pete explores the alternative comedy scene, a world of comedy nerds, apartment shows and no-drink minimums, where he begins to thrive. As he continues to lean on the hospitality of comedy greats, Pete explores all types of comedy, from benefit shows to the college market to roast battles. These diverse encounters test his enthusiasm and optimism, but also promise to make him a better comedian as he tries to survive the competitive world of New York stand-up.

Series veterans featured on season two of CRASHING include Lauren Lapkus (HBO's "Animals.") as Pete's ex-wife, Jessica, George Basil ("Flaked") as Leif, Jessica's former lover, and comics Dave Attell, Dov Davidoff and Artie Lange, playing versions of themselves.
