Canceled 'Party Down' TV Series May Find Life Again in Feature Film?
In television, no matter how great a series might be, lack of viewers will still bring the axe down it. Such was the fate of "Party Down" a hilarious comedy focusing on a six aspiring, writers, actors and generally lost souls as they work for a catering service in Los Angeles until their next big break comes in life. The hilarious series only lasted two seasons on the Starz cable channel, but series stars Adam Scott, Jane Lynch (later replaced by Megan Mullally), Lizzy Caplan, Martin Starr, Ken Marino and more brought some hearty laughs. Now it sounds like the canceled series may find new life in the form of a feature film.
People are talking to us about doing a 'Party Down' movie. We are pretty far down the deal-making process with that, so we’re hopeful that there will be a 'Party Down' movie. Ideally, if it works out we could be shooting in television hiatus time next spring. Hopefully that deal will close, and we’ll all tweet about it when it does.
That sounds pretty damn great, and if they're really far enough down the deal-making process, hopefully Thomas isn't just blowing smoke up our asses. We've been hearing about an "Arrested Development" movie for awhile, and we all know how that's turned out so far. Even worse is that Thomas himself, the man behind "Veronica Mars" has been talking about a film for that canceled series for awhile too. Anyway, as a fan of "Party Down" I'm going to keep my hopes up, but my excitement in check until we hear that this is actually happening. But if it does, you can bet I'll be buying a ticket.
