Yes, you're correct! That's Jason Schwartzman, Ted Danson, and Zach Galifianakis together. Can you imagine a TV series that starred these three?

No need to imagine too much, because you could watch the pilot Wednesday night.

The premise of this new HBO program is based on a short story by Jonathan Ames, where a struggling author (named "Jonathan Ames") decides to fill some of his time by advertising his services as a private detective on Craigslist.

It's bound to be dryly humorous that plays off the quirky noir theme, so who knows if it'll last -- but some of us may fall in love with it. I'm rooting this one.

DJ Mistaker will spin, and there will be some "complimentary food and beverages."

It looks like one of those events that they admit people on a "first-come, first-served" basis.
