Created by Katja Blichfeld (Emmy®-winning casting director of “30 Rock”) and Ben Sinclair (“Home Again,” “Sisters”), the new season of HIGH MAINTENANCE delves deeper into the contemporary anxieties New Yorkers are experiencing, from political tension to soaring real estate prices, while emphasizing the importance of savoring the highs of life in this increasingly volatile world.

New guest stars this season include Danielle Brooks (“Orange Is the New Black”), John Gallagher, Jr. (HBO’s “The Newsroom”), Jessica Hecht (“The Forgotten”), Luzer Twersky (“Félix & Meira”) and Kate Lyn Sheil (“Girlfriend”), with Abdullah Saeed (“Bong Appétit”) and Yael Stone (“Orange Is the New Black”) returning.
In the season premiere, “Globo,” the Guy (Ben Sinclair) has a busier-than-usual day as New Yorkers react to world changing news.
