NUMBER OF EPISODES | 8

EPISODE LENGTH | 30 mins.

PREMISE | Yes, it’s yet another comedy about a stand-up comedian, written by a stand-up comedian. But Crashing — executive-produced by Judd Apatow, who co-wrote and directed several episodes — wins you over with the polite charms of Holmes, who stars as Pete, a squeaky-clean aspiring comic whose life falls apart when he discovers his wife (Lauren Lapkus) is cheating on him with a ponytailed art teacher named Lief (George Basil). Pete resorts to crashing on the couches on comedian friends like T.J. Miller and Sarah Silverman while he gradually hones his stand-up act to the point where the audience is actually laughing with him, and not at him.
