What a difference a year makes!
Last July, Starz canceled the brilliant comedy series Party Down, a tragic event I chronicled here with both protests and pleas for other networks to save the show.
That didn’t happen.
Fast-forward to 2011. Last Friday the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Austin, Texas hosted a Party Down Marathon attended by series creator Rob Thomas and many of the cast members, including Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation), Megan Mullally and Lizzy Caplan.
During the Q&A portion of the evening, Thomas said that a Party Down movie is “pretty far down the deal-making process!”
My protests have been heard! My pleas have been answered!
Party Down is coming back!
Sure, it’s not a TV show, but a movie works for me (and probably works better for many of the actors, who have gone on to other series).
But since this ‘process’ might take a little while — Rob Thomas is the same guy that keeps saying there will be a Veronica Mars movie, after all — here’s the Party Down online game to keep you entertained!
Yes, now you too can be a catering waiter and see first-hand how much talent it takes to ‘act like you care.‘
