With True Blood kicking off this Sunday, HBO is getting their new and returning series ready for the world to see. That means that we get some of the first glimpses at our favorite comedies returning since last season, such as Bored to Death and Eastbound and Down.
The former, Bored To Death, stars Jason Schwartzman as a failed writer living in Brooklyn who decides to moonlight as a private detective. The only problem is that he isn’t very good at that either. The show is actually made watchable by the supporting characters played by Zach Galifiniakis and Ted Danson.
The latter, starring Danny McBride, is about a rundown, foul-mouthed, ex-major league pitcher who has to settle into the life of a regular gym teacher in a small town. The show comes from Jody Hill (Observe & Report) and Will Ferrell, and had us in stitches for the first season.
Both comedies are slated to return around the same time, keeping HBO’s popular comedy series together in one night, most likely. Check out the new teasers for both shows after the jump, and get ready for Eastbound & Down and Bored To Death to return this September.
