Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Judd Apatow and series star and creator Pete Holmes, CRASHING is a half-hour comedy series that centers on Pete, a sheltered suburbanite in a supposedly solid marriage, who dreams of making it as a stand-up comedian. But when he finds out his longtime wife Jessica is cheating on him with Leif, Pete's safe world unravels, forcing him to reevaluate his priorities. So he flees to the New York comedy scene, where he crashes on other people's couches, in the process learning hard lessons about life and himself. Holmes draws on his own experiences as a stand-up comic, offering a behind-the-scenes look at the unpredictable world of live comedy. Among the notables appearing as versions of themselves on the show are Dave Attell, Hannibal Buress, Artie Lange, T.J. Miller, Jim Norton, Rachael Ray and Sarah Silverman.
On Sunday, April 9, 2017 at 10:30pm ET/PT, HBO premiered the season finale of CRASHING. In the season ender, "The Baptism," after an attempt to cheer up Pete goes wrong, Artie tags along with him to a baptism. Artie gets insight into religion and God from a woman, and Pete runs into Jess, which makes him question how much he is willing to sacrifice for a life in comedy. Nearly one month earlier -- on Wednesday, March 15 -- HBO announced that it renewed CRASHING for a second season.
