BORED TO DEATH Season Two Premiere Sunday, September 26th
Meet Jonathan Ames: writer, romantic, unlicensed private detective. After his girlfriend leaves him and breaks his heart, he decides to live out his fantasy of moonlighting as a PI – just like his favorite noir crime heroes. Called “witty and deliberately offbeat…quirky…(and) charming” (The New York Observer), Bored to Death: The Complete First Season will be released on September 21, 2010 by HBO Home Entertainment, just before the much anticipated premiere of the new season on HBO. The 2-disc DVD and Blu- ray sets contain entertaining bonus features including a guided tour of the New York sets by Jonathan Ames and Jason Schwartzman, a “Making of” piece and audio commentaries, all for the suggested retail price of $39.98 and $49.99 respectively.
Blending neurotic humor and noir mystery elements, Bored to Death follows Ames (Jonathan Schwartzman, The Darjeeling Limited) as he solves a variety of cases in the Big Apple – despite the fact that he’s virtually inexperienced as a private detective. Jonathan pursues each case with gusto, though very little discretion, abandoning all sense of reality and avoiding work on his regular writing gig and second novel. The all-star cast also include Ames’s needy boss, George, (Ted Danson, Curb Your Enthusiasm®), who constantly interferes with his newfound career; as well as his best friend Ray, (Zach Galifianakis, The Hangover), who tries his best to advise him, while barely keeping his own life together.
