Providing a glimpse into the homes and routines of eccentric New Yorkers, the comedy series HIGH MAINTENANCE explores the private lives of these unique individuals through a common thread: their weed deliveryman. Ben Sinclair stars as The Guy, whose client base includes a group of characters with neuroses as diverse as the city. Each episode features multiple stories exploring the inner workings of people from all walks of life, told fly-on-the-wall style through the series' patented brand of offbeat humor and pathos, revealing a city full of strangers united by the perennial pursuit of life's greatest highs. The hit web series comes to HBO with six new half-hour episodes starting FRIDAY, SEPT. 16 (11:00-11:35 p.m. ET/PT), followed by other episodes subsequent Fridays at the same time, exclusively on HBO.

PRINCIPAL CAST INFORMATION:
Ben Sinclair as The Guy

CREW INFORMATION:
Ben Sinclair as CRTR/EP/DIR (Pilot)
Katja Blichfeld as CRTR/EP/DIR (Pilot)
Russell Gregory as EP
I'll check this out since it is on after Bill Maher.

I binged through the webisodes and the first season when they got added to HBO Go last year and it's a great show. Glad to see it's back for a second season.

Re: High Maintenance - from webisodes to HBO

Moving from Friday to Sunday night, HIGH MAINTENANCE(R) returns for its nine-episode third season SUNDAY, JAN. 20 (10:30-11:05 p.m. ET/PT). Created by Katja Blichfeld (who directs the season premiere) and Ben Sinclair, the critically acclaimed show uses The Guy, a marijuana dealer (played by Sinclair), to tell a variety of stories about New York lives, including his own. HIGH MAINTENANCE continues to paint a uniquely authentic portrait of New York with empathy and insight, telling amusing, surprising, sometimes moving and always poignant tales of denizens who are usually just faces on the crowded sidewalks of Brooklyn. The series is executive produced by Katja Blichfeld (Emmy(R)-winning casting director of "30 Rock"), Ben Sinclair ("Home Again," "Sisters") and Russell Gregory. This season, HIGH MAINTENANCE profiles everyday people whose stories of success, failure, love and loss intersect across New York, while delving deeper into personal life of The Guy, who is spending less time on his iconic bicycle and more time in "Steve RV," a set of wheels gifted to him last season. Featuring an intricate web of memorable returning characters and unforgettable new faces, the new episodes find New Yorkers exploring their relationship with the city, touching on such themes as death, parenthood, sexuality, fantasy, aging and more. Returning guest stars this season include: Amy Ryan, Gary Richardson, Arthur Meyer, Jen Harris, Micah Sherman and Abdullah Saeed. New guest stars this season include: Jemima Kirke, Margaret Cho, Guillermo Diaz, Rosie Perez, Kathleen Chalfant, Ken Leung and Annie Golden.
