Starz, an American premium cable network, has released the trailer of its two upcoming half-hour TV series online. We're introduced to the first season of Gravity, a show created by Jill Franklyn and Eric Schaeffer, and the second season of Party Down, a sitcom created by John Enbom, Dan Etheridge and Paul Rudd.
In Gravity, we follow 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 (Seth Numrich).
In the second season of Party Down, Henry (Adam Scott) is now the boss of the catering crew Party Down ever since Ron (Ken Marino) quit in order to run his own business. Because of the recession, Ron finds himself forced to go back to Party Down, but he wants Henry's job. Other than that, the rest of the crew keeps their job before they can make it big in Hollywood. Kyle (Ryan Hansen) believes he's the next leading man in Hollywood. Casey (Lizzy Caplan) is waiting the day when she'll be a big comedian. Roman (Martin Starr), a young brainy scriptwriter, is always thinking about a script that he'd like to submit. Besides, there will be a new member in the crew: Lydia Dunfree (Megan Mullally), a middle-aged refugee from a lousy marriage, moves to Hollywood in hopes that her 13 year-old daughter will make it big.
