'Veronica Mars' Creator Produces Upcoming Comedy Series, 'Party Down'


The pilot of Rob Thomas' new comedy series has been shot last year and will set to air in early 2009 on Starz TV.

"Veronica Mars" creator, Rob Thomas, is going to produce his TV series comedy entitled, "Party Down". Thomas created the series with "Mars" veterans John Enbom and Dan Etheridge, along with actor Paul Rudd. The new series will be premiered on Starz TV network in early 2009 with 10 episodes for its first season.

"We'll have opportunity for satirical lampooning of whatever subset the party represents as we tell the ongoing stories of our catering crew," Thomas says in a statement. "If the original British version of 'The Office' was a show about people who have given themselves over completely to the rat race, 'Party Down' is a show about people who have chased the dream for far too long. We're particularly interested in mining the comedy of what happens as the dream fades."

Stephan Shelanski, executive vice president and programming of Starz Entertainment, says, "'Party Down' is a new daringly fresh series that will bring a new style of comedy to Starz." He adds, "It further fulfills our mission to produce intelligent, contemporary original series that traditional networks cannot offer. We are pleased to work with Rob Thomas who brings a unique and visionary style to his productions."

Thomas' new series focuses on six friends of Hollywood wannabes who come to the city and work at a catering company. In the city, they live with such a big dream which then starts to fade. Each episode takes place at a different catered event with the group serving up the laughs. So far there is no detail information about the cast on this new series.
