In celebration of Party Down‘s Season 2 renewal, here’s the video that co-creator Rob Thomas made to pitch the show to networks before it was eventually bought by Starz. It has a lot of familiar stuff from the pilot, but in some cases, different actors (including Andrea Savage from Step Brothers in the role now played by Lizzy Caplan). Supposedly, they made this at Thomas’s house during the writer’s strike.

If you haven’t seen Party Down yet, it’s hilarious. Get into it.

    • I didn’t realize she was Amy on True Blood or Janis Ian until I watched Party Down. I really liked her on True Blood even if she was crazy, I wish she didn’t have to get killed off.

      No, yes, and yes. Full package award!

  2. i’m into it now, thanks to you. I watched all 8 episdoes in a row last night instead of going to bed. totally worth it.

  3. I’ve always wondered if the Rob Thomas who made this show as the same Rob Thomas who makes terrible music with Matchbox 20. A quick look at wikipedia would answer it, but I’m lazy.

  4. I like lizzy caplan better.

    Okay, “Walking On Sunshine” must be royalty free or something.

  6. Andrea Savage was great in Dog Bites Man. Lizzy Caplan is a better Casey, though.

    Ok, I’ve looked multiple times at the Starz website and can only find episodes 1 and 3 available for free online viewing. Am I missing something or do I have to pay for the Starz Play thing to watch all of the episodes?

  8. It’s a watch instantly on netflix

  9. this looked okay but i’m glad it wasn’t what i watched to decide if i would like the show. every minor thing that’s different between this and the pilot, every expression, actor, every beat – the pilot was better. good job refining things, team!

  10. can someone please tell me how to watch the video. nothing shows up just the picture and i want to see the pitch ep SO BAD!! ive seen all of season one and all thats out for season 2 right now
