Show Summary: Back in New York after a potentially lucrative trip to Japan, Ben Epstein (Bryan Greenberg) and Cam Calderon (Victor Rasuk) hit the ground running, hustling for every opportunity. The partners scour the downtown scene for new business connections, following every lead they can to get noticed in the ultra-competitive fashion industry and make headway with CRISP, their homemade fashion line of T-shirts and hoodies. As the stakes get higher, these charming entrepreneurs confront new obstacles in New York City, determined to achieve the American Dream.

Meanwhile, Ben’s ex-girlfriend Rachel (Lake Bell) has returned to New York transformed by a trip to Africa and Europe; Cam’s cousin Rene (Luis Guzman) is pursuing a get-rich scheme by marketing his Rasta Monsta energy drink; Domingo (Scott Mescudi aka Kid Cudi), Cam and Ben’s well-connected friend, is developing his own “entrepreneurial” business; and successful hedge fund manager David Kaplan (Eddie Kaye Thomas) is a big supporter of Ben and Cam’s venture. Attempting to negotiate turbulent romantic waters, Ben finds his relationship with his girlfriend, Julie (Margarita Levieva), tested by Rachel’s return, while Cam lands a new girlfriend, Lulu (Nicole Laliberte), who owns a clothing store.
