Martha Plimpton, most recently seen on Broadway as Gladys Bumps in the revival of Pal Joey, is on the roster for the show, the latest offering from the producers of HBO’s “Entourage.”

According to, "'How to Make It in America' follows two enterprising Brooklyn twentysomethings as they hustle their way through New York City, determined to achieve the American Dream. Trying to make a name for themselves in New York's competitive fashion scene, Ben Epstein and his friend and business partner Cam Calderon use their street knowledge and connections to bring their ambitions to fruition.”
