STARZ PARTIES ON!! 'PARTY DOWN,' THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED SITCOM, RENEWED FOR SEASON TWO

Ken Marino, Adam Scott, Martin Starr, Ryan Hansen and Lizzy Caplan Return To Cater Your Appetite for Comedy

Called "a must-see" by USA Today, "Party Down" features a talented ensemble of actors, including Ken Marino as Ron Donald, the aggressively pious leader of the Party Down Catering company; Adam Scott as Henry Pollard, the one-time actor who has returned to the life of cater-waiter; Martin Starr as Roman DeBeers, the team's self-proclaimed Sci Fi visionary and all-purpose intellectual; Ryan Hansen as Kyle Bradway, who's an actor, model and front-man for an earnest alt-rock band when not working Hollywood parties; and Lizzy Caplan as Casey Klein, a pretty, smart, funny, and insecure comedienne who happens to make ends meet as a cater-waiter.

Starz Media, the production and distribution sibling of the Starz premium entertainment channels, is producer of the series, which is once again being directed by '80s icon, Fred Savage ("The Wonder Years") and Bryan Gordon ("Curb Your Enthusiasm," "Freaks and Geeks"), both of whom are also supervising producers on the second season. Series star Ken Marino will also direct an episode. Jennifer Gwartz and Danielle Stokdyk serve as co-executive producers. Series star Adam Scott will serve as producer.

Entertainment Weekly calls the show "straight-up funny;" it had the Chicago Tribune "guffawing out loud," and it prompted the Detroit News to describe it as, "a guaranteed trip to silly town."

"Making this show, with this amazing cast, and with the incredible freedom and support we get from Starz, has been a dream experience," said John Enbom. "We couldn't be more excited to get back to work on Season Two."

"Starz aims to give our audience fresh, original and enormously entertaining originals to accompany our lineup of hit feature films, and 'Party Down' certainly fit that bill its first season," said Stephan Shelanski, EVP programming at Starz. "The comedic pedigree of the cast not only complements the incredible writing, but cements the show as one of a handful of truly original comedies on the air today."
