Cult comedy becomes Hulu's latest acquisition after scoring rights for “South Park” and “Sleepy Hollow”
Hulu Plus has acquired the exclusive streaming rights to Starz comedy “Party Down.”
Beginning Friday, all episodes of the cult comedy will be available on the website's pay platform. The first five episodes of the series will be available for a limited time on the free, ad-supported Hulu.com.
“Party Down” became a cult hit after its premiere on Starz in 2009. Lizzy Caplan (“Masters of Sex”) and Jane Lynch (“Glee”) star alongside Adam Scott (“Parks and Recreation”), Ken Marino (“Marry Me”), Ryan Hansen (‘Veronica Mars”), Martin Starr (“Silicon Valley”) and Megan Mullally (“Will & Grace”).
Created by Rob Thomas (“Veronica Mars”), “Party Down” 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,” said Lisa Holme, director of content acquisition at Hulu. “We know our viewers will enjoy watching some of their favorite actors showcasing their comedy chops in this hilarious show.”
