Megan Mullally talks about her role on “Party Down”

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

Megan Mullally is delighted with her latest show, “Party Down,” and considers her character one of her favorite roles. Now she just hopes more people find the network.

“We’re just trying to get everybody to get Starz. The show has gotten so much critical acclaim, but so many people don’t have Starz,” notes Mullally of the cable network. “The guy who ran HBO for 17 years just took over so they have a chance now to really turn it into something. They also just released season one on DVD so that helps.”

In the second season, launching tomorrow night (4/23), Mullally makes her debut as a middle-aged refugee from a lousy marriage who moves to Hollywood in hopes that her 13-year-old daughter will make it big. The show takes us into the crazy world of wannabe actors, writers and others who work as caterers for fancy Hollywood events while awaiting their big breaks. “My husband and I happened to stumble upon the show the first season. We were like, ‘This show is so good. What is the deal?’” she recalls. “Then when Jane [Lynch] left to go do ‘Glee’ it left this space that they needed to fill and they wrote a new character. When they called, I instantly said yes. I think it’s the best half hour show on cable, hands down.”
