COMEDY SERIES "HIGH MAINTENANCE," CREATED BY KATJA BLICHFELD AND BEN SINCLAIR, RETURNS FOR THIRD SEASON ON NEW NIGHT, JAN. 20 ON HBO

Moving from Friday to Sunday night, HIGH MAINTENANCE(R) returns for its nine-episode third season SUNDAY, JAN. 20 (10:30-11:05 p.m. ET/PT). Created by Katja Blichfeld (who directs the season premiere) and Ben Sinclair, the critically acclaimed show uses The Guy, a marijuana dealer (played by Sinclair), to tell a variety of stories about New York lives, including his own.

HIGH MAINTENANCE continues to paint a uniquely authentic portrait of New York with empathy and insight, telling amusing, surprising, sometimes moving and always poignant tales of denizens who are usually just faces on the crowded sidewalks of Brooklyn. The series is executive produced by Katja Blichfeld (Emmy(R)-winning casting director of "30 Rock"), Ben Sinclair ("Home Again," "Sisters") and Russell Gregory.

This season, HIGH MAINTENANCE profiles everyday people whose stories of success, failure, love and loss intersect across New York, while delving deeper into personal life of The Guy, who is spending less time on his iconic bicycle and more time in "Steve RV," a set of wheels gifted to him last season. Featuring an intricate web of memorable returning characters and unforgettable new faces, the new episodes find New Yorkers exploring their relationship with the city, touching on such themes as death, parenthood, sexuality, fantasy, aging and more.

Returning guest stars this season include: Amy Ryan, Gary Richardson, Arthur Meyer, Jen Harris, Micah Sherman and Abdullah Saeed. New guest stars this season include: Jemima Kirke, Margaret Cho, Guillermo Diaz, Rosie Perez, Kathleen Chalfant, Ken Leung and Annie Golden.

Episodes include:

Season 3, episode 1: "M.A.S.H."

Debut date: SUNDAY, JAN. 20 (10:30-11:05 p.m.)

While spending time away from the city in his RV, The Guy (Ben Sinclair) gets upsetting news, but makes an intriguing new connection. Cori (Erin Markey), meanwhile, tries to adjust to a new reality without her friend.

Written by Katja Blichfeld & Ben Sinclair; directed by Katja Blichfeld.

Season 3, episode 2: "Craig"

Debut date: SUNDAY, JAN. 27 (10:40-11:10 p.m.)

After his bike is stolen, regular customer Marty (Gary Richardson) consults The Guy (Ben Sinclair), whose suggestion sends him down a surprising path. Bored with her mundane life, Darby (Catherine Cohen) finds ways to unnerve and bewilder strangers.

Written by Isaac Oliver & Zack Schamberg; directed by Ben Sinclair.

The series is also available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners' streaming platforms.

Recently named one of the best TV shows of 2018 by Vanity Fair, the New Yorker and Variety, HIGH MAINTENANCE's second season as hailed by IndieWire as "TV's most human show" and "a beautiful mural, only growing richer and richer with each new installment." The New Yorker called it a "humble, graceful and funny anthology that really works," while Vox described the show as an "empathetic gem" that provides "unexpected and boundless generosity."

HIGH MAINTENANCE was created by Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair; executive producers, Katja Blichfeld, Ben Sinclair and Russell Gregory; producers, Willy Friedman, Gwen Bialic and Emi Irikawa.
