“How To Make It In America” Not Dead? - This slipped through the cracks a bit, but apparently last month HTMIIA executive producer Mark Wahlberg was asked about the show in an interview with GQ. His response:
GQ: Two HBO shows you’ve produced—Entourage and How to Make It in America—ended recently. We know Entourage is over but is there a future for How to Make It in America?
Mark Wahlberg: Well, the wheels are always turning and we’ve talked to the networks and we may pair it up with another network. You know, you can only have so many shows on the air [at HBO], but we’re talking about putting it elsewhere. One of the great things is also that we have a couple of things that are really geared toward guys that we’ve been developing that [HBO] feels are really close to going.
Great news, but I kind of called it. Even though I still think FX would be a good network for it, perhaps it needs to go somewhere else where it can keep the full vulgarity and occasional nudity. After all, nobody is forgetting Lake Bell’s boob flashes from last season any time soon.
