The rebirth of Family Guy and Arrested Development has given fans of cancelled television shows hope that cancellation isn't always the end. One such show that might still have a heartbeat, albeit a small one, is Party Down, the critically acclaimed Starz show that lasted only two seasons.
The Huffinton Post reported that Megan Mullally, who appeared on the second season as Lydia Dunfree, recently revealed to Scott Aukerman on his "Comedy Bang Bang" podcast that the cast is ready and hoping that the long-rumored film project comes to life.
"We're shooting for next hiatus, which means next spring/summer," Mullally said. "It's still not 100 percent official though and I got in trouble the last time I talked about it. I'm going to talk about it again, I don't care. We're trying to get it going, it's a question of getting the script finished and approved and all of that."
Party Down also stared Adam Scott, Jane Lynch, Ken Marino, Lizzy Caplan and Martin Starr. The series lasted for 20 episodes before being cancelled two years ago.
In an interview from March of this year, Scott talked to the Huffington Post about his hopes the film would get made.
"Yeah, our fingers are crossed," Scott said. "We're hoping sooner rather than later. But, you know -- you never know. Everybody is pretty busy now, which is really nice, because when we shot the show, no one was busy. But we're all just trying to get it together. It would be really fun. Everyone is totally in; everyone wants to do it."
