Jonathan Ames Shares His Post-Bored to Death Plans

bored23.jpgOver at Vulture, novelist Jonathan Ames talked about the cancellation of Bored to Death, the HBO show he created. He also speculated about a book, movie or comic book that could continue the story.

The private detective comedy starred Jason Schwartzman, Zach Galifianakis and Ted Danson. In the interview, Ames stressed that the show had a strong following on DVR, on-demand and other “nontraditional viewership.” Fans joined Ames at the great Brooklyn Inn last night for sympathy drinks.

Here’s more about his future plans: “maybe I’ll write a book from the fourth season from the point of view of Jonathan Ames, the character. That would even confuse me! [Laughs.] I have ideas for a fourth season that could translate nicely into a fun caper/detective movie. One of the things I wanted to explore was that as Jonathan became a more capable detective, we could increase the action and the slapstick and the adventures. A comic book could be fun, because I could write out all these things we wanted to do.”
