The popular, but short-lived HBO series Bored to Death, created by Jonathan Ames and starring Jason Schwartzman, Ted Danson and Zach Galifianakis, is on pace to become a movie. The series, set in Brooklyn, followed Schwartzman's fictional Jonathan Ames, a writer by day and a private detective by night, as well as his friend Ray (Galifianakis) and his friend/former editor George (Danson).
HBO's canceled television series, Bored to Death, aired its final episode in November, but extant fans of the show may get to see the detective show on the big screen, according to its star Ted Danson.
As much as I hate to say it, there’s no mystery behind why HBO’s Bored to Death hasn’t inspired the kind of cult following it had hoped for. The witty series is just a little too ambitious, unfocused and misguided to pack everything it hopes into a thirty-minute time slot while still giving the characters an opportunity to dazzle as they are struggling to do amid all the weird plot twists and turns.
Far from being Bored to Death, Jason Schwartzman, 30, is having a lot of fun being a new dad. The Rushmore actor and his wife Brady Cunningham, a fashion designer, welcomed daughter Marlowe Rivers, on December 4th in Los Angeles.
