Bored To Death

Preview by Jack Foley

TO MARK the June 20 DVD release of HBO’s new comedy Bored To Death, we’re giving you the chance to win one of three DVD boxsets of the complete first season.

From writer and series creator Jonathan Ames, this Emmy® award-winning hit stars a hilariously outstanding cast including Jason Schwartzman (The Darjeeling Limited, Rushmore), Zach Galifianakis (Due Date, The Hangover) and Ted Danson (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Cheers).

The quirky eight episode series follows the misadventures of a fictional Jonathan Ames (Jason Schwartzman) as he moonlights from his job as a magazine writer to follow his dream of becoming a private detective.

After a painful break-up with his girlfriend (Olivia Thirlby) thanks to his fondness for white wine and weed, Jonathan finds himself bored and in need of a new adventure to help overcome his writer’s block, so is inspired to advertise himself online as an unlicensed private eye.

His usual second career choice sees Ames stumbling from one crazy situation to another including some interesting cases of missing persons, infidelity and espionage in the Big Apple.

Ames’ two companions and confidants come in the form of Ray Hueston (Zach Galifianakis), a comic book illustrator and best friend who is appalled by the idea of pretending to be a detective, and George Christopher (Ted Danson), Ames’ high-profile and womanizing editor who doesn’t care about his moonlighting schemes and sees Jonathan as an escape from his own boredom.
