Are you having fun yet? Because you will be when Party Down debuts on Hulu on Friday, August 29.
One of the great tragedies of the binge-watching era was when Starz took Rob Thomas’ show about cater waiters/struggling showbiz types off of Netflix, but fans (and those who are about to become fans) can rest easy: Hulu announced today that all episodes are coming to Hulu Plus. The first five will stream for free for a limited time. (But really, be warned: You’ll be hooked after just the first one.) Party Down only lasted two seasons on Starz, but has such a devoted cult following that a there is persistent, if not reliable, chatter about a movie.
If you’re not a convert yet, here are some reasons to watch: the coupling of a pre-Parks and Recreation Adam Scott and a pre-Masters of Sex Lizzy Caplan, plenty of guest spots from Veronica Mars cast members (Mars staples Ryan Hansen and Ken Marino are regulars), insider-y Hollywood humor, and the line about a leg “made footless by pot.”
UPDATE: This post has been updated to reflect that Party Down will become available August 29. EW regrets the error.
