The Life and Times of Tim is an HBO comedy animated television series, created by Steve Dildarian, about a man in his mid 20s named Tim (Dildarian), living in New York City with his girlfriend Amy (Mary Jane Otto), who constantly finds himself in increasingly awkward situations. It is the first HBO animated original since Todd McFarlane's Spawn, that aired from 1997 to 1999. Life & Times premiered September 28, 2008 on HBO. It was originally developed for FOX in 2007, but has since been slated for 10 episodes by HBO.
Dildarian, in addition to providing the the voice of Tim, serves as the series' executive producer. Dildarian is most notable for his famous "Budweiser Lizards" campaign. He is also known for his animated short Angry Unpaid Hooker, which was awarded the Best Animated Short at the 2006 Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen and is the basis for The Life and Times of Tim. Tom Werner (That '70s Show, 3rd Rock from the Sun, and The Cosby Show), Jimmy Miller (Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby and Borat) and Mike Clements executive produce as well.
