Pete is a sheltered suburbanite who is married to his childhood sweetheart and dreams of making it as a stand-up comedian. But when he finds out his wife is cheating on him, Pete’s world unravels, forcing him to reevaluate his priorities. Pete flees to the New York comedy scene, where he crashes on other people’s couches, learning hard lessons about life and himself in the process.
There's sad news today for fans of HBO's Crashing, as the cable network has cancelled the comedy after three seasons. Creator and star Pete Holmes confirmed the cancellation on Twitter this afternoon with a post expressing his gratitude and thanks to those that worked on the show.
In the half-hour series, Holmes plays a semi-autobiographical version of himself - that is, a comedian named Pete, who after learning his wife has not been faithful to him, begins to re-evaluate his life while working in the New York comedy scene. This Sunday's episode will now serve as the series finale.
