Merry Christmas from HBO: “The Life & Times of Tim” to return in 2010

Christmas has come early to fans of HBO’s animated series “The Life & Times of Tim.”

Variety reports that the series – the first season of which aired way back in the fall of 2008 – will finally return at 10:30 p.m. Feb. 19, following “The Ricky Gervais Show.”

“Tim” – in case you haven’t heard – is the brainchild of Steve Dildarian, an East Brunswick, N.J., native. In addition to thinking up the painfully awkward situations Tim frequently finds himself in (think an animated “Curb Your Enthusiasm”), Steve is also responsible for bringing us the Budweiser lizards and the happy-school-is-starting father in that Staples commercial. You can learn more about Steve by reading my 2008 interview with him on my website.

Meanwhile, posts on the show’s Facebook fan page (which include comments from Peter Giles, who hilariously voices Tim’s boss) indicate the first season will be available on DVD around the same time as the second season premiere. 2010 is looking brighter already!
