Starzplay has greenlighted a revival debut for its popular comedy title, "Party Down." “After more than 10 years, we’re excited to have the cast, many of whom are now hugely popular award-winning stars, return to don their pink bowties and head back to the party,” said Jeffrey Hirsch, President and CEO at STARZ. “The fan demand for a ‘Party Down’ revival is clear and we look forward to what Rob, Paul, John, Dan and now Adam will do as they bring this special project and these hilarious characters back to life.”
The title will return as a six-part series,executively produced by “Party Down” alumni Rob Thomas along with John Enbom, Paul Rudd, Dan Etheridge, and Adam Scott. Enbom will also serve as showrunner. In addition to serving as an executive producer, Scott will also return to reprise his role along with original cast members Ken Marino, Jane Lynch, Martin Starr, Ryan Hansen and Megan Mullally who will all return in the long-awaited new season.
Executive Vice President of Original Programming Karen Bailey is the executive overseeing “Party Down” on behalf of STARZ. The limited series is produced for STARZ by Lionsgate Television. It follows a Los Angeles catering team – a sextet of Hollywood wannabes stuck working for tips while hoping for their “big break.” Each episode of this half-hour comedy finds the hapless catering team working a new event – and inevitably getting tangled up with the colorful guests and their absurd lives. The first two seasons of “Party Down” debuted on STARZ in 2009 and 2010, respectively. Both seasons remain available on the STARZPLAYapp. The “Party Down” revival is expected to go into production in 2022.
The service's subscribers have access to an exclusive line-up of premium programming including STARZ Original limited series “The Spanish Princess” and the explosive second chapter in the “Power” Universe, “Power Book II: Ghost” starring Mary J. Blige the same day they launch in the US; 2020 Emmy®-nominated series such as the thought-provoking millennial comedy “Ramy” from Muslim-American comedian Ramy Youssef, the genre-bending period dramedy “The Great” starring Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult, and the award-winning series “The Act” starring Academy Award® Winner Patricia Arquette and Joey King; plus a blockbuster movie library featuring thousands of titles.
