HBO going back to ‘America’

'How to Make It' gets second-season renewal

HBO is on a renewal roll.

A day after greenlighting an eighth season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” pay cabler has ordered a second season to “How to Make It in America.”

Half-hour comedy created by Ian Edelman follows two enterprising twentysomething guys — Bryan Greenberg and Victor Rasuk — trying to figure out how to earn a living and make a career for themselves in the fashion industry in Gotham. Luis Guzman and Lake Bell co-star.

Over its first eight episodes, “America” averaged 2.8 million viewers including factoring in multiple telecasts during the week, and viewing via HBO on-demand and DVR playback.

Season two will also be eight episodes and will debut in summer 2011.

In addition to Edelman, exec producers are Stephen Levinson, Rob Weiss, Julian Farino, Jada Miranda and Mark Wahlberg.

HBO also recently renewed a second season of “Treme” two days after its April 11 premiere.
