Life in NYC: How To Make It In America

via. HipHopUpdate.

You may or may not have heard of this show, either by way of Kid Cudi or just entertainment news in general - but it recently started shooting a little behind schedule. I've already seen the initial pilot, which they shot last Fall in Manhattan and Brooklyn (I think), and I know it'll appeal to a hip hop crowd. It has a lot to do with the come up, the every day grind and like the title says, 'How to Make It in America.'

FYI if you haven't already realized, Kid Cudi aka Scott Mescudi plays the character, "Domingo Green." Below is a rundown I jacked from another site:

The pay cable network has greenlighted a comedy pilot from Stephen Levinson's Leverage and Mark Wahlberg's Closest to the Hole.

Penned by Ian Edelman, "How to Make It" revolves around three enterprising downtown twentysomethings who hustle their way through New York City determined to achieve the American dream.

"These guys don't want to wait for things to happen, they make them happen," Levinson said. "That's the attitude of this generation, which Ian represents very well."

"This show is a fun ride through the downtown scene, examining the cross section of people and how they relate to the relevant subcultures in NYC," said Weiss, who is exec producing the pilot with Edelman, Wahlberg and Levinson.

"How to Make It" joins a busy pilot slate at HBO that includes "Hung" and "Bored to Death" as well as recently picked-up "Treme," "The Washingtonienne" and "Boardwalk Empire."
