The Plot:

Jonathan Ames continues to ply his trade as an unlicensed private detective, getting caught up in increasingly risky jobs and absurd adventures around New York City with George and Ray, his always supportive partners in solving crime. In addition, a shocking revelation drives him to embark on one of his most important cases yet, the quest to find his biological father. As if that wasn’t enough, Jonathan’s writing career is finally starting to look up with the publication of his long-delayed second book.

Starring Jason Schwartzman as the fictional Jonathan Ames, Bored to Death tells the story of the noir-obsessed writer, who moonlights as an unlicensed private detective listing his services on Craigslist. This season, Ames has published A Blonde in the Woods, his collection of mystery stories, and is living in the topmost apartment of Brooklyn’s Williamsburgh bank tower, while putting his sleuthing skills to the test for a myriad of clients new and old.

Meanwhile, Jonathan’s mentor and benefactor George Christopher, played by Ted Danson, has left the magazine business to open his artisanal restaurant George on Jane, located on Jane Street in the West Village, while also attempting to reconnect with his estranged daughter. And Jonathan’s close friend, cartoonist Ray Hueston, played by Zach Galifianakis begins to transform into a Park Slope mom when one of the lesbians who bought his sperm on the black market contact him after her divorce.
