Bored to Death is a new series set to premiere on HBO this coming Sunday, September 20. However, thanks to the generous folks at HBO, and Fancast, you can watch the entire first episode on their website right now! For those of you who have HBO, it is also available on HBO On Demand. Here’s what TVOvermind’s own Sam McPherson had to say when describing this new series.
With Hung and True Blood set to end their seasons very soon, HBO is looking for something to fill in that coveted Sunday night block. One of those somethings is the new comedy series (billed as a noir-otic comedy) Bored to Death, starring Jason Schwartzman as a amateur private eye whose only experience comes from reading detective novels.
The series, which also stars Ted Danson and Zach Gilifinakis, has the potential to be truly funny, and also truly successful. Airing in the slot following returning champ Curb Your Enthusiasm, Bored to Death looks like it might just take in a good portion of viewers from Curb, like me, who will just stick around to see what all the fuss around this show is about.
