We’ve got another HBO comedy coming our way and Jason Schwartzman is the main man. Jason has been cast to be the lead in new HBO comedy pilot "Bored to Death."
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Jonathan (Jason) will play a struggling writer with a drinking problem in Brooklyn who, following a painful breakup with his girlfriend, decides to emulate his heroes from the novels of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett. He takes out an ad pretending to be a private detective and starts taking cases -- solving some and making others worse.
Production is set to start filming sometime in September in NYC.
We've been seriously lacking in the comedy department so lets hope this show is something worth watching.
