Parents need to know that this comedy about a catering business is full of all kinds of iffy behavior -- from drinking and unbleeped swearing on the job to employees accepting sexual favors from party guests. There's occasional nudity, and characters trade sexually charged barbs and insults (like \"Dude, you just f--ked me in the ass\") and make edgy assumptions about race, gender, and sexual preference. In short: It's funny, but it isn't meant for kids.
A motley crew of Hollywood party caterers (including characters played by Adam Scott, Lizzy Caplan, and Jane Lynch) go through the motions under the direction of a team leader (Ken Marino) who takes his responsibilities to the extreme in PARTY DOWN. In each episode, the gang muddles their way through another event, from birthday parties to awards shows, all the while waiting for their big chance to move on to something better. (Fun fact: Fred Savage -- who shot to fame as a child star on the nostalgic sitcom The Wonder Years -- directs some episodes.)
A runaway hit Maybe not. But the best thing Party Down has going for it is comedic potential. After all, the right actors are in place, and the decision to set the show in Tinseltown, starting each episode at the beginning of a new event and ending it when the party's over, opens the door to guest spots, side plots, and endless possibilities.
What do you think the characters' motivations are Why might they be working as party caterers Have you ever had a job that you really didn't like What didn't you like about it, and did that ever make it more tempting to goof off or do a mediocre job
\"The gang is back and down to party,\" a brand-new trailer teases, showing the beloved characters all these years later. And yes, they're still catering... Looks like acting didn't exactly work out for any of them.
Most of the new images showcase the returning cast members, including Adam Scott, Megan Mullally, Ken Marino, Jane Lynch, Ryan Hansen and Martin Starr with their trademark Party Down pink bow ties. The promotional images also show a first look at new cast members Marsden and Jennifer Garner. Alluding to his role as Cyclops in Sony's X-Men films, Marsden will portray an actor in a superhero franchise who gets involved with the Party Down catering company. While the exact role he will play in the revival remains unknown, Marsden will appear in Party Down as a recurring guest star.
Previously announced new cast members joining in on the fun include Jennifer Garner (The Adam Project, Yes Day) Tyrel Jackson Williams (Thunder Force, Brockmire), and Zoë Chao (Love Life, The Afterparty). James Marsden (Disenchanted, Dead to Me) is set to recur as a guest star.
Returning Party Down stars include Adam Scott (Severance) as Henry Pollard, Ken Marino (The Other Two) as Ron Donald, Jane Lynch (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) as Constance Carmell, Martin Starr (Silicon Valley) as Roman DeBeers, Ryan Hansen (Veronica Mars) as Kyle Bradway, and Megan Mullally (Will & Grace) as Lydia Dunfree. Joining the gang for season three are Jennifer Garner (The Adam Project), Tyrel Jackson Williams (Brockmire), and Zoë Chao (The Afterparty).
Using the current creative brief for the Party Down brand, I pulled images from the mood broad that I felt applied to the direction I wanted to take this brand while meeting the clients criteria. From the mood board I created a color palette that was neutral with a pop of color for a classy look.
Hulu pitchman (and Family Guy guy) Seth MacFarlane and Eliza Dushku celebrated Dollhouse's surprise pickup at the Fox party. Plus, it's great to see these exes so chummy.
It came down to a filming time issue that held Caplan from joining the highly awaited third season of Party Down. The actor's pre-schedule for FX on Hulu's mini-series Fleishman Is in Trouble and the season 3 shoot's shooting schedule clashed. 59ce067264
