How to Make it in America sits comfortably on the ever-growing list of entertaining TV series that were prematurely cancelled before they got their fair shake.

Call it a victim of bad timing.

The series centered on Ben Epstein (Bryan Greenberg) and Cam Calderon (Victor Rasuk), two struggling New Yorkers trying their best to be entrepreneurs.

At the time of Ben and Cam’s premiere, Entourage had already shifted past its heyday and was wearing on its audience. Ben and Cam entered a space that wasn’t looking for another Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier), Eric Murphy (Kevin Connolly), Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon), and Turtle (Jerry Ferrara).
