Party Down Series
Full Show Summary

Hollywood is full to the brim of aspiring actors who work on small jobs while waiting to make it big. Party Down changes the focus from those who have been succesful to the ones who still aren’t quite there. We’ll meet a group of actors and writers whose career hasn’t taken off, all working on catering company called Party Down, where they make a living while they wait for the big break. At least their lives are not totally dull, since in every event they attend they find weird guests with whom they’ll interact in different and usually strange ways. In fact, we’ll rarely see them work as caterers, and the action will revolve around their clashing personalities and the people they meet. The show has very good writing, featuring consistently brilliant dialogs and creating a very different personality for each character. Much of the focus is put on Henry, an actor who enjoyed a brief stint of fame after doing a beer commercial and doesn’t dream with big success anymore, helping his peculiar co-workers to remain realistic. Other members of the group are Casey, played by the pretty Lizzy Caplan (Cloverfield), a young divorced actress who is having an affair with Henry; Roman, a sharp-tongued writer; and Kyle, an actor, model and musician who is positive about his future stardom. The main cast does a very good job, and the audience will also enjoy the apparition of such famous guest stars a Kirsten Dunst, J.K. Simmons and Kristen Bell. While the show is genuinely funny, it struggled with ratings and only lasted for two seasons, but there have been talks to bring it back as a movie. Its loyal fans are hoping this project will materialize.
Party Down S02E10 Constance is getting married and she's hired her Party Down friends to make sure they attend.
