ADDITIONAL NOTES: confirmed as canceled on 6/30/10
DESCRIPTION: (from Starz's press release, January 2010) Starz is piling on the offbeat humor, packaging the returning comedy series "Party Down" and the new dramatic comedy "Gravity" to run Fridays at 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. (et/pt), respectively, starting on Friday, April 23, only on Starz. These two comedies fit in with Starz' commitment to program series unlike anything on TV. Actress Megan Mullally ("Will & Grace," Fame) joins the "Party Down" cast this season as Lydia Dunfree, a middle-aged refugee from a lousy marriage who moves to Hollywood in hopes that her 13 year-old daughter will make it big. She joins a talented ensemble of actors lead by Adam Scott (Indie Spirit Award nominee: Best Actor for The Vicious Kind), Ken Marino, Lizzy Caplan, Martin Starr and Ryan Hansen. Rob Thomas ("Veronica Mars," "Cupid") along with John Enbom, Paul Rudd and Dan Etheridge are executive producers and Adam Scott (Henry Pollard) is a producer on the show. Bryan Gordon ("Curb Your Enthusiasm") and Fred Savage ("The Wonder Years") return as series directors and supervising producers. Also directing episodes this year are David Wain (Role Models) and Ken Marino, who directs the season finale, featuring the wedding of first season regular Jane Lynch. Starz Media, the production and distribution sibling of the Starz premium entertainment channels is also producer of the critically lauded series, which was recently named one of the 10 best TV shows of 2009 by the AFI.
