HBO has renewed two of their hit shows, Eastbound & Down and Bored to Death for third seasons. This doesn’t come to anybody’s surprise as both are top performers for the network and have rave reviews from critics and fans.
Eastbound & Down follows Danny McBride playing Kenny Powers, a washed up baseball pitcher, who has to return to his hometown and works as a substitute physical education teacher. In season two, he shows up in Mexico and starts playing for a Mexican professional team.
Bored to Death stars Jason Schwartzman, Zach Galifianakis, and Ted Danson in a series that follows struggling author Jonathon Ames (Schwartzman), who starts his own private eye business after he realizes he has a lot of time on his hands after his novels come back rejected.
