Check out a teaser for HBO's new comedy Bored to Death

If you enjoyed the Yo Teach ... ! clips Jason Schwartzman did to promote Judd Apatow's Funny People, then you'll dig the following teaser for HBO's Bored to Death. The upcoming comedy stars Schwartzman as a struggling writer who moonlights as a detective.



Writer Jonathan Ames is the man behind the series, which features an amazing cast including Zach Galifianakis (still riding a buzz from The Hangover), Ted Danson, Parker Posey and Saturday Night Live's Kristen Wiig.

Some folks are calling Bored to Death a hipper version of Castle, but I'm getting more of a Andy Barker P.I. vibe from the teaser. Schwartzman seems to be riffing on his idealistic loser role from I Heart Huckabees (which is great) and Galifianakis is just doing what he does best – belching out rude one liners. And Danson looks likes he's having a ball.

Bored to Death premieres in September on HBO (and it already looks funnier than the upcoming season of Entourage.) Will you watch?

I'll give it a watch, but I STILL want my Andy Barker P.I. back!!
More Andy Barker and less Survivor XXIX "Even more boring than the other seasons, if that is possible"!
More Castle, less "I'm NOT a celebrity, why am I on TV?"!
More Journeyman, less Dancing with the network livestock!!
