Synopsis

Jonathan Ames, a young Brooklyn writer, is feeling lost. He's just gone through a painful break-up, thanks in part to his drinking and marijuana habit, can't write his second novel, and carouses too much with his magazine editor.

Rather than face reality, Jonathan turns instead to his fantasies — moonlighting as a private detective — because he wants to be a hero and a man of action.

The offbeat comedy series Bored to Death, created by Jonathan Ames, follows the misadventures of a fictional Jonathan Ames as he pursues his quixotic dream of emulating his heroes from classic private detective novels.

Bored to Death stars Jason Schwartzman as Jonathan Ames; Ted Danson as George Christopher, a high-profile magazine editor and Jonathan's boss; and Zach Galifianakis as comic book illustrator Ray Hueston, Jonathan's confidante.

Bored to Death was created by Jonathan Ames; executive producers, Jonathan Ames, Sarah Condon, Stephanie Davis, Dave Becky and Troy Miller; co-executive producer, Tracey Baird; producers, Mark Baker and Anna Dokoza.
