HBO hustles pilot for "How to Make It"
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - HBO has the recipe for "How to Make It in America," ordering a comedy pilot about three twentysomethings hustlers in New York.
"These guys don't want to wait for things to happen, they make them happen," said Stephen Levinson, one of the executive producers.
The script was written by Ian Edelman, who began his TV career writing and directing on-air promos for cable network G4 and has penned several pilot scripts.
Edelman will also executive produce, as will Mark Wahlberg and Rob Weiss. Levinson, Wahlberg and Weiss are behind HBO's hit Hollywood-hipster series "Entourage."
