HBO’s forthcoming private detective series…a comedy.

This fall, HBO will start airing a new private detective series: BORED TO DEATH.

Penned by Jonathan Ames (“The Alcoholic”), this half-hour comedyseries stars
Jason Schwartzman (Rushmore, The Darjeeling Limited), Ted Danson (Cheers,
Damages) and Zach Galifianakis ( The Hangover). Schwartzman portrays a
struggling thirtysomething Brooklyn writer with a drinking problem who decidesto
emulate his heroes from the novels of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett
following a painful breakup with his girlfriend. Pretending to be an actual
private detective, he starts taking cases – solving some and making others
worse.


Ok, I am not sure how to react to this. It looks…interesting. Schwartzman is decent, but my perception of him is locked in with Wes Anderson. Maybe this will help him develop his own reputation (at least in my eyes).

Here is the teaser trailer:
