Hulu has acquired exclusive streaming rights to Starz’s cult comedy “Party Down,” it was announced Wednesday.

From Friday, August 29, every episode of “Party Down” will be made available on Hulu Plus, while the first five episodes will be available for a limited time on Hulu.com, which is free and ad-supported for non-subscribers.

“Party Down” premiered on Starz in 2009, and features an enviable ensemble of actors, including Adam Scott, Lizzy Caplan, Jane Lynch, Ken Marino, Ryan Hansen, Martin Starr and Megan Mullally. The show was created by “Veronica Mars” mastermind Rob Thomas and follows the story of a group of Hollywood acting wannabes who make ends meet by working for a Los Angeles catering company.

“Hulu is a top destination for great, cult comedies, which is why ‘Party Down’ is the perfect addition to the Hulu library. We know our viewers will enjoy watching some of their favorite actors showcasing their comedy chops in this hilarious show,” said Lisa Holme, Director of Content Acquisition at Hulu.
