COMEDY CENTRAL INTERNATIONAL’S SECOND SEASON OF "I LIVE WITH MODELS" PREMIERES IN ASIA ON SATURDAY, 18 FEBRUARY

Season Two is Set in New York City and Features New Cast Including Lydia Rose Bewley (The Inbetweeners Movie, Drifters), Karan Soni (Deadpool, Office Christmas Party) and Kamilla Alnes (Norway’s Top Model, American Horror Story)

 

SINGAPORE, 23 JANUARY 2017 - Comedy Central International’s sitcom I Live With Models returns for a second series in Asia on Saturday, 18 February at 8.10pm (TH/WIB), 9.10pm (HK/PH/SG/TW) and 10.10pm (MY). Hand model Tommy moves to New York City where he confronts new challenges, new roommates and a fierce new modelling scene. 

 

Tommy (David Hoffman), a former barista who gets his big break as a hand model, and commercial model Scarlet (Brianne Howey) head to New York City, as they strive to make it big in the epicenter of fashion. The show airs every Saturday.

 

Tommy and Scarlet quickly learn that their biggest challenge is living with their new roommates – a brash plus sized model named Jess (Lydia Rose Bewley) and a flighty runway model named Molly (Kamilla Alnes). Their dreams rest in the inexperienced hands of newbie model agent, Marshall (Karan Soni), who sets out to conquer the ruthless NYC modelling industry, one casting at a time.   

 

Season two sees the models face some new and hilarious challenges. Tommy is cast as a hand double in a shaving commercial and does his best to shave the flawless face of famous model Max (guest star Andres Velencoso), but gets a little too close to his co-star. Molly tries to get over a break-up by leaning on Tommy (much to his delight), Jess attempts to boost her social media following by accompanying a nerd to his high school prom and Scarlet is given the true test of friendship when she is forced to choose between Tommy and a hunky male model to star alongside her in a commercial.

 

The brand new series sees Emmy nominated Mark Reisman (Frasier) join the team as Executive Producer and showrunner, along with Comedy Central’s Jill Offman and Ash Atalla and Dan Hine of Roughcut TV.
