TCA: “Party Down” – the gang’s all back together

The “Party Down” gang is jazzed to be getting back together again for season two, to debut April 23.

Starz’s cult-fave comedy, about the antics of showbiz wannabes who work for a catering company, will open the season with the group catering an “Eyes Wide Shut”-esque orgy. Other episodes involve a party for Steve Guttenberg’s 50th birthday, a bash for a Marilyn Manson-style rock star who’s getting tired of the grind, a community theater’s opening night and a party for the former writing partner of the character Roman who has hit it big with a movie.

There’s also a company picnic episode that will give fans the chance to see the characters in civilian clothes for the first time. Adam Scott, who plays the high-strung Henry, noted that he fought hard to make sure his character got to wear shorts.

Megan Mullally steps in this season as a regular in place of Jane Lynch, who was a standout in season one but is now committed to Fox’s “Glee.” Mullally said she was happy to be working “with good people and good material,” making what seemed to be a snide reference to her short-lived ABC comedy from last year, “In the Motherhood.”

“I learned that the scripts actually have to be good – or there actually has to be a script,” she joked. She plays a woman from the Midwest who has just moved to Hollywood to turn her 14-year-old daughter, Escapade, into a star.
