HBO is handing out a pair of renewals.
The premium cable network has ordered third seasons of the comedies Crashing and High Maintenance. The renewals come as the series are currently in the middle of their second seasons, both of which premiered in January.
Crashing, which centers on creator and comedian Pete Holmes’ life, first premiered last February and was quickly renewed for a second season in March. Executive produced by Holmes, Judd Apatow and Judah Miller, the show offers a behind-the-scenes look at the world of stand-up comedy. Co-executive producers include Igor Srubshchik and Oren Brimer, with Josh Church and Dave Rath producing.
High Maintenance started out as a web series on Vimeo before moving over to the pay cabler in September 2016. The pot comedy comes from creators Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair, and stars the latter as a bearded, pot-dealing deliveryman whose growing clientele is keeping him busier than ever. Russell Gregory also executive produces, with Willy Friedman, Gwen Bialic and Emi Irikawa serving as producers.
In addition to Crashing and High Maintenance, HBO’s comedy slate also includes Veep, Silicon Valley, Insecure, Divorce, Ballers, Vice Principals, Tracey Ullman’s Show and Curb Your Enthusiasm.
