Party Down: Starz Expands Revival of Six-Part Limited Series
Starz announced he was relaunching the party and developing a six-part version To party limited series. The new original comedy is under development and executive production by To party alumni Rob Thomas (Veronica mars, Zombie) with John Enbom (Zombie, Banked), Paul Rudd (The ant Man, Ghostbusters: the afterlife) and Dan Etheridge (Veronica mars, Zombie). Enbom also serves as a showrunner.
To party follows a Los Angeles catering team – a sextet of aspiring Hollywood stuck at work to get tips hoping for their “big break.” With each episode of this half-hour-long comedy, the hapless catering team is working on a new event and inevitably becomes entangled with the colorful guests and their absurd lives.

“Before the casting of To party went on to become well-known TV and film actors and award winners, they all wore the same pink bow ties as part of a less than competent team of Los Angeles catering servers while pursuing their dreams of fame in the Starz series, ”said Christina Davis, President of Original Programming for Starz. “Fans have been waiting for over 10 years for this revival to happen and we are thrilled to be in development with Rob, Paul, Dan and John at the helm.”
“At the end of 2019, the To party the cast and producers were all reunited for a retrospective of the show hosted by Vulture. We had such a good time that we wanted to find a way to put the team back together, ”said Rob Thomas. “The cast is so busy these days that finding a window where we can do it may require trigonometry, but we’re determined to make it happen.”
The cult hit lasted two seasons on Starz from 2009 to 2010 and starred Ken Marino (Veronica mars, Role models), Adam Scott (Parks and recreation, Big little lies), Jane Lynch (Joy, Criminal minds), Martin Starr (In blister, Silicon Valley), Ryan Hansen (Bless this mess, Veronica mars), Lizzy Caplan (stone castle, Masters of sex) and Megan Mullally (Will and Grace, The big North). Both seasons are available on Starz and for download or streaming through the Starz app.
