How to make it in America is a new comedy/drama series from the producers of Entourage created for HBO®. It follows two twenty-somethings from Brooklyn as they hustle their way into the NYC fashion scene. What got me into this show is the excellent intro. With music from Aloe Blacc (I Need a Dollar), the opening sequence is energetic, colorful, vibrant, hip, cool — everything NYC is about.

As soon as I know more about the credits for this intro, I’ll update this post. In the meantime, enjoy.

The Pacific

January 12, 2010

The Pacific is a new 10-part mini-series event premiering on HBO this coming March 14th. From the producers (Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg and Gary Goetzman) of the award-winning mini-series, Band of Brothers, The Pacific follows the experiences of three US Marines in the Pacific theater of WWII. I can not wait.
