Airdate: Bored to Death

By David Knox on January 26, 2010 / Filed Under Pay TV 2

Showcase will premiere Bored to Death, HBO’s ‘noir-rotic comedy’ about a Brooklyn writer who moonlights as an unlicensed private detective.

The half hour comedy stars Jason Schwartzman (Rushmore, Cracking Up), Zach Galifianakis and Ted Danson.

Meet Jonathan Ames: writer, romantic, unlicensed private detective. Moonlighting from his job as a novelist and writer for a New York magazine, Jonathan is looking to jettison some heavy emotional baggage – his girlfriend just dumped him, okay! – through an unusual second career of cracking cases of missing persons, espionage and infidelity in the Big Apple.

How he solves anything is a mystery …

The serie, which premiered in September in the US,  has been renewed to a second series by HBO.

Showcase will air double episodes over 4 weeks from 8:30pm Tuesday February 16th.

    I agree, this was the funniest, well written program of 2009!!! The only problem it was 7 or 8 eps long… hopefully next season will be more!! Loved it!!!
