Dear Major Network TV Exec’s:
Perhaps you’ve already begun your holiday weekend, seated at centre court Wimbledon. Or on a private island whose location you’ve only tweeted to the paparazzi.
Or maybe you’re one of the true working stiffs, stuck in a conference room, trying to resurrect your ratings.
I don’t really care where you are; I just care what you do.
Please save the brilliantly funny “Party Down”…’cause Starz is letting it die.
Executive VP of Programming Stephan Shelanski said Starz is ‘committed to aggressively expanding our original programming lineup’…but then they canceled their brand new suicide drama “Gravity,” too.
Sounds like what they really have is a commitment issue….or not enough money to back up their big plans.
Again, I don’t really care.
I just want “Party Down” to have a second chance…with a network that can afford to keep it on the air. It’s a far better show than a lot of the shlock that’s out there now — we’re talking absurdly funny, with guest stars used in truly creative ways.
So, come on people — let’s work together and solve two problems at once. Save “Party Down” and fill one of your slots with quality TV.
Now go out and play. It’s a holiday, for cripes sake.
