Season 3 of BORED TO DEATH premieres on Monday, October 10, at 9pm on HBO.
Synopsis: 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.
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 (“Damages,” HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm”), 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 (“The Hangover II,” “Due Date”) 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.
