Ted Danson Says the 'Bored to Death' TV Movie Is Being Written

Back in June, we reported that a 90-minute Bored to Death HBO movie was in the earliest stages of development, but now, word comes in from the series' star Ted Danson that creator Jonathan Ames is hard at work on a script. While speaking at the GQ Gentleman's Ball last week, The Wall Street Journal reports that Danson said, "The deal is about to be signed… [Jonathan Ames] is writing it as we speak. I’m very excited." He proceeded to spill the beans on some plot details: "I think Jason [Schwartzman] becomes a policeman, which means, for him, a traffic cop. He’ll have a traffic-cop go-kart kind of thing. And I think Ray [Zach Galifianakis's character] and I move in together, both of us without relationships. And then: hijinks. All hell breaks loose. That’s about as much as I know." With Larry David's HBO movie Clear History in the works too, this could make for one hell of a double feature.
