Be 'Bored to Death' at the Cinema

After trundling along for three seasons, HBO's Bored to Death TV series was finally cancelled. For many people this didn't mean anything as the show had a very small audience yet it still enjoyed a moderate cult status with those who appreciated what it could offer.

The show follows writer Jonathan Ames as he moonlights as an unlicensed private detective, normally aided by his dimwitted best friend and stoner boss. Although it had the makings of being a by-the-book case-a-week show, it managed to evolve into something much different by focusing more on the characters than the bizarre situations they would find themselves in.

It is with good news however that the shows creator/lead writer (also called Jonathan Ames) has announced that he is working on a feature length script. It is still unconfirmed as to whether the movie will actually be made but it's always a good sign when the screenplay is commissioned. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long to see what crazy antics Jonathan, Ray and George get up to.
