What @LadyBlogga Will be Watching…

HBO is known for its Sunday night line-ups. There was a screening last night for “How To Make It In America” at Art Jail which only confirmed that they will have another Sunday night on lock.

“How To Make It America” is a show set in NYC that follows the lives of two guys from Brooklyn. They are doing what they do to hustle up and make things happen. The show is set deep in downtown NYC, SoHo, Chinatown, LES and all the spots that are alive and well in the city. Watching this show, you get a feel for life in the Big City. The show has an Entourage feel to it but it’s the flip side of the story. Entourage shows what happens after the grind while “How To Make It…” shows the grind side of the story. It captures the nightlife and day movements as they happen. Shooting on location is hot. I saw a few people I know in the atmosphere, including those RSNY boys from my hood. Those boys are EVERYWHERE! We all know that making it in New York City is tougher than tough. If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere (cliché I know… sue me).

The “How To Make It…” Mixtape [click to check it out] is on point too. Tracks from Jadakiss featuring Sheek Louch, Kid Cudi, Lupe featuring Kenna, Johnny Polygon and Green Lantern completes the mix. Tough.

Bryan Greenberg (Ben Epstein) and Victor Rasuk (Cam Calderon) capture the hustle, bustle and determination of their characters well. The supporting cast includes the likes of Martha Plimpton, Lake Bell, Scott Mescudi a.k.a. Kid Cudi, Luis Guzman, Shannyn Sossamon and Eddie Kaye Thomas. The production skills of HBO Entertainment is on point. Mark Wahlberg is one of the Executive Producers and you can tell because the series has a signature flare to it that only he can bring.

The first Episode will be airing on Sunday February 14th. If you aren’t out with your love on Valentine’s Day, dinner and “How To Make It In America” at home on HBO makes a perfect quality time activity. Here is the full 30-minute episode, compliments of HBO. Enjoy!
