HBO Series Filming on Brooklyn College Campus

Once again the Brooklyn College campus was bombarded by film equipment and not from its film department.  The HBO series “Bored To Death” was filming on the Quad on April 12.

The series is created by author Jonathan Ames and its main character is about a fictional version of writer Jonathan Ames played by Jason Schwartzman.

” Bored to Death” follows the fictional Ames on misadventures as he pursues his dream of impersonating his heroes from his favorite private detective novels and neglects the reality of being a writer.

The series is loosely based in Carroll Gardens and is primarily shot near the Fort Greene part of Brooklyn.  It just so happens it was shooting in the Flatbush area this week.
