Is A ‘Party Down’ Movie in the Works?

Is A ‘Party Down’ Movie in the Works? (photo)

Posted by on

Are everyone’s favorite cater waiters coming to the silver screen? Maybe. In an interview with the Huffington Post, star Lizzie Caplan indicated that at least the cast of “Party Down” is very interested in the possibility of completing the story arcs left open at the end of the much loved show’s final season.

After two seasons and twenty episodes, fans of the hilarious Hollywood-skewering comedy were outraged when “Party Down” was cancelled. The show followed the staff of a catering company as they worked the parties of the Hollywood elite and grappled with their dreams in a reality filled with crudite. The show was hilarious yet thoughtful and the cancellation of the critically acclaimed show was a surprise. Based on the interview with Caplan, it sounds like the cast was unhappy with the cancellation, too, and not just because it put the show’s stars out of work. Rather Caplan claims she really loved the show. But this love and the fans who are just discovering the workplace comedy are part of the reason that a movie has a shot at happening. Caplan said, “People are finding out about it now, it seems like, which is great, because I think it will have legs and hopefully become more of a cult thing, which will encourage us to make a lovely feature film.”

The timing may be challenging though as the talented cast has moved on with their careers. Adam Scott is busy starring on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation”, Jane Lynch is on Fox’s “Glee,” and Ryan Hansen just wrapped “Friends with Benefits” a forthcoming mid-season replacement on NBC. It would also do a lot to promote the Martin Starr Full Employment Act for the former “Freaks & Geeks” star. Caplan remains optimistic about the movie’s chances. In the interview she said of making a film. “People are busy with their television shows and whatnot, but it’s definitely something that we all want to do, so I think we’ll do everything we can to make it happen.” Fingers crossed, fans. Until then, start padding your Netflix queue with the past two seasons of “Party Down”:

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
