[via press release from HBO]


Tim is a normal, twentysomething New Yorker trying to get ahead at work while keeping his girlfriend Amy happy and living a "normal" life. However, in Tim's world, his often peculiar choices leave him in outlandish, surprising situations.

THE LIFE & TIMES OF TIM, produced for HBO by Media Rights Capital, returns for its ten-episode third season FRIDAY, DEC. 16 (9:00-9:30 p.m. ET/PT). This animated comedy series about an average guy whose actions repeatedly lead him down the wrong path was created by Steve Dildarian, who executive produces, writes for the show and provides the voice of Tim. Each half-hour episode of THE LIFE & TIMES OF TIM consists of two segments that find Tim in a new unenviable dilemma.

In this third season of THE LIFE & TIMES OF TIM, Tim's habit of befriending bizarre and unusual personalities in New York City continues to put him in dangerously funny circumstances. In addition to Dildarian, voices are provided by Mary Jane Otto (Amy), Nick Kroll (Stu), Matt Johnson (Rodney) and Peter Giles (The Boss). Guest voices this season include Jennifer Coolidge, Rob Corddry, Andrew Daly, Jon C. Daly, Jamie Denbo, Bob Einstein, Joe Flaherty, Andy Kindler, Marc Maron, Penny Marshall, Edie McClurg, Alfred Molina, Mary Kay Place, Ian Roberts, Stephen Root, Paul Rust, Bob Saget, Horatio Sanz, Paul Scheer, George Wallace, Kym Whitley, Fred Willard, Billy Dee Williams and Anton Yelchin.
