The trailer for a new HBO Series starring Jason Schwartzman premiered tonight.  Unfortunately we can’t embed the video, but if you go here, you can see the preview. Looks pretty damn good to me.

According to Variety

The pilot will center on a Brooklyn writer (Schwartzman) who nurses a painful breakup by acting out his dream to live as a character out of a Raymond Chandler novel. As a result, he finds a new lease on life by offering up his services as an inexperienced private eye.

In the preview alone, besides Schwartzman, are the great Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig, Ted Danson, and Parker Posey. John Hodgman and Olivia Thirlby will also apparently have roles on the show as well. The series was created by author Jonathan Ames, who you can follow on Twitter. (Where you can also follow us.)

The series will premiere September 20th on HBO.
