Bored To Death creator Jonathan Ames is mourning the cancellation of his TV show by inviting fans to join him for a night out in New York on Wednesday (21Dec11).
Bosses at America's HBO network announced their decision to axe the cult comedy, starring Jason Schwartzman, Ted Danson and Zach Galifianakis, on Tuesday (20Dec11) after three seasons on air.
The series' creator Ames has now decided to thank fans for their support by inviting them to a night out at a bar in Brooklyn on Wednesday (21Dec11) so he can buy them all a drink.
He announced the plan in a series of posts on Twitter.com, writing, "Fans of Bored To Death: come to the Brooklyn Inn tomorrow night at 10pm & I'll buy you a drink!... Thank you for watching us these last three years!"
Ames subsequently explained his decision to the New York Post's gossip column Page Six.
He says, "I went back on Twitter so that I could invite Bored to Death fans for a drink at the Brooklyn Inn, my treat, to say goodbye to the show. Maybe some people will show up... I plan to buy everyone a drink if they're a fan...
"It's been a loony and nutty three-year run, which I'm very grateful for. In the same way that Casablanca ended with Humphrey Bogart and Claude Rains walking off, I hope that people will think of these three characters still alive... These were three very unique friends."
