Starz's Half-Hour Comedies Premiere on April 23

Starz, an American premium cable network, announced yesterday that its two comedies series will premiere on Friday, April 23. These two TV series are Party Down (photo), which enters its second season, and Gravity, a dramatic comedy.

Obviously, while Party Down premieres on 10 PM, Gravity begins at 10:30 PM.

Party Down is a comedy about a catering crew from Hollywood. Its members (Adam Scott, Ken Marino, Lizzy Caplan, Jane Lynch, Ryan Hansen and Martin Starr) just work at Party Down while they wait for an opportunity to make a name for themselves in Hollywood. Moreover, Megan Mullally (Will & Grace) will join the cast as Lydia Dunfree, a middle-aged refugee from a lousy marriage who moves to Hollywood in hopes that her 13 year-old daughter will make it big.

As for Gravity (formerly known as Failure to Fly), it follows the sometimes comic, sometimes tragic exploits of a group from an eccentric out-patient program of suicide survivors. Lily Champagne (Krysten Ritter) is a twenty-something clinically depressed outcast looking for the love that her father never gave her. Robert Collingsworth (Ivan Sergei), an ophthalmologist, is despondent following the cancer death of his wife and becomes an internet celebrity when his suicide attempt goes comically awry. Miller (Eric Schaeffer), an NYPD cop, seems to be everywhere Lily is. Dogg McFee (Ving Rhames), the group’s leader and a former Major League Baseball player, is now confined to a wheelchair. Shawna Rollins (Rachel Hunter), a former spokesmodel and current life coach, is surprised to find herself attracted to someone much younger than herself.
