According to Variety, HBO has renewed the Jason Schwartzman-led comedy Bored To Death for a second season. The show, which also stars Ted Danson and the inimitable Zach Galifianakis, has aired just three episodes so far. (I thought it was okay, but found myself hitting "delete" on the TiVo instead of "play" this week—anybody else?)

In other Zach Galifianakis news, RZA has apparently joined the cast of Due Date, the new Todd Phillips-directed (Road Trip, The Hangover) comedy starring the bearded one and Robert Downey Jr. That movie is in production.

You know what else Zach Galifianakis did? He took time out of his schedule to list his favorite fax numbers for our new book, Inventory, which hits stores next Tuesday.
