Party Down Revival for Starz


Starz is developing a six-part Party Down limited series, reviving the cult-hit comedy that originally ran for two seasons from 2009 to 2010.

The new original comedy is being developed and executive produced by Party Down alumni Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars, iZombie) along with John Enbom (iZombie, Benched), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man, Ghostbusters: Afterlife) and Dan Etheridge (Veronica Mars, iZombie). Enbom also serves as showrunner.

The limited series is produced for Starz by Lionsgate Television.

“Before the cast of Party Down became well-known television and movie actors and award winners, they were all wearing the same pink bowties as part of a less than competent team of Los Angeles cater-waiters while chasing their dreams of stardom on the Starz series,” said Christina Davis, president of original programming for Starz. “Fans have been waiting more than ten years for this revival to happen and we’re thrilled to be in development with Rob, Paul, Dan and John at the helm.”

“At the end of 2019, the Party Down cast and producers were all reunited at a retrospective for the show hosted by Vulture. We had such a good time that we wanted to find a way to get the team back together again,” 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.”
