Judd Apatow Talks Pushing HBO's Limits, New Show ‘Crashing'

Judd Apatow is heading back to the small screen to direct the new HBO comedy series “Crashing.” He’s also dishing how he learned to push boundaries along the way.

The director told “Extra’s AJ Calloway, “I started working for HBO when I was 18 years old on “Comic Relief.” As a kid I worked on “The Larry Sanders Show,” and then “Girls,” so it’s a great place to work.”

He added, “They give me a lot of freedom and there are no limits… well, there are some limits. At “Girls” one day, we said ‘Can we do this?’ And they went, ‘No, we’d lose our license if we did that,’ so that was the line, we just found the line.”

“Crashing” airs Sundays at 10:30 p.m. on HBO.
