COMEDY SERIES "CRASHING," CREATED BY AND STARRING PETE HOLMES, RETURNS FOR THIRD SEASON JAN. 20 ON HBO

Fresh off of his two-month college comedy tour, Pete returns to New York City with newfound confidence in his comedic abilities. While growing more assured, he continues to struggle over what he really wants out of comedy and how to find a happy balance between his old, faith-based self and the new, more ambitious comic he's becoming.

Created by and starring Pete Holmes, the critically acclaimed comedy series CRASHING returns for its eight-episode third season SUNDAY, JAN. 20 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO. Executive produced by Pete Holmes, Judd Apatow (HBO's "Girls" and "The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling"), Judah Miller ("Playing House") and Igor Srubshchik ("Master of None"), the series draws on Holmes' own experiences as a comedian, providing a nuanced, hilarious look at the state of comedy today.

CRASHING's third season finds Pete reinvigorated - and no longer crashing on people's couches - as he reenters the NYC stand-up comedy world following his college tour. But even though he's improved, that doesn't mean he's at the head of the pack. While continuing to orbit around fellow comic and ex-girlfriend Ali (Jamie Lee), he connects with a new woman, Kat (Madeline Wise), who has a unique perspective on the comedy world and isn't trying to make it big by telling jokes. As Pete edges closer to success one stand-up set at a time, he continues to navigate his faith, dating and the ever-changing comedy scene.

Series veterans featured on season three of CRASHING include: Lauren Lapkus (HBO's "Animals") as Pete's ex-wife, Jessica; George Basil ("Wrecked") as Leif, Jessica's former lover; Jamie Lee ("Girl Code") as fellow comic and former love interest Ali Reissen; Zach Cherry ("You") as Pete's manager, "Chicken Wing"; Dov Davidoff ("Shades of Blue") as Jason; Jermaine Fowler ("Superior Donuts") as Russell; and Aparna Nancherla ("BoJack Horseman") as Anaya. Madeline Wise ("Peacekeepers") joins the series in the recurring role of Kat, an outgoing city girl who inspires Pete to get serious about his career.

Returning guest comics Dave Attell, Artie Lange and John Mulaney appear as versions of themselves. Other established talents making appearances this season are: Ray Romano, Amy Schumer, Estee Adoram, Wayne Federman, Greg Fitzsimmons, Chris Gethard, Kevin Brennan, Elon Gold, Joyelle Johnson, Jessica Kirson, Emo Philips, Colin Quinn, Vanessa Ramos, Modi Rosenfeld, Wil Sylvinces, Marissa Jaret Winokur and Jaboukie Young-White.
