'Blunt Talk' Creator Talks 'Remarkable' Patrick Stewart and Making Cable News Funny


After turning the journalistic, fiction, memoir and graphic novel worlds on their heads with his distinctively quirkily charming, self-analytical writing style, author Jonathan Ames brought his particular touch to television with his absorbing cultishly adored HBO kinda-sorta autobiographical comedy " Bored to Death, " earning praise for unique characterizations and attention to comedic details.

And so for me, it wasn't so much about the news, but an environment where characters could gather, and we could study this central character, this Walter Blunt.
