Hey gang Starz is continuing the success they had with their original series Crash by presenting 2 new original comedies that start this Friday, Party Down and Head Case.  I've seen the first episode of Party Down and it's hilarious (although not all ages appropriate!) and will have a review of it up soon.  In the mean time here's some info for you and a couple of widgets for the shows.

With Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas and Paul Rudd (I Love You Man) listed as the co-creators of the brand new half-hour comedy series “Party Down”, how could this show not be great? The new season of "Head Case" also promises to be a barrel of laughs as celebrity guest stars including Jerry Seinfeld and Hugh Hefner, pay a visit to Dr. Goode's (Alexandra Wentworth) couch for the first time.  

Party Down (new show premieres Friday, March 20, 2009 at 10:30 PM ET/PT on Starz)
As employees of the L.A. catering company “Party Down,” a group of struggling dreamers who are stuck working for tips while waiting for their big break mingle with guests at everything from sweet sixteen parties to the most lavish Hollywood soirees. Ken Marino (Vinnie Van Lowe of Veronica Mars) is the team leader. Adam Scott (Tell Me You Love Me, Knocked Up) plays Henry, the failed actor who has returned to his old job at Party Down. Ryan Hansen (Dick Casablancas of Veronica Mars) plays an aspiring actor/model/rocker who likes to hit on ladies and wants to hit it big. Martin Starr (Bill Haverchuck of Freaks and Geeks) is Roman, a geeky screenwriter who thinks everyone who doesn’t get things like references to Repo Man are idiots. Jane Lynch (Best in Show, 40 Year Old Virgin) plays a woman who was once an actor who did bit parts, which she likes to talk about occasionally. She has a tendency to get too chummy with the guests at the parties. And finally Lizzy Caplan (Amy from True Blood, Cloverfield, Mean Girls) plays a comedian with marital problems who is constantly trying to resolve her issues with her husband while at work.


Head Case (new season premieres Friday, March 20, 2009 at 10 PM ET/PT on Starz)
Unapologetically frank, Dr. Elizabeth Goode (Alexandra Wentworth – “Live with Oprah,” “Seinfeld,” “In Living Color”) is not your average Hollywood therapist. She’s a tad judgmental, occasionally argumentative, but always committed to her uphill battle treating mental health within the entertainment industry. Celebrity guests who will appear as themselves include Jerry Seinfeld, Spice Girl Geri Halliwell, SNL™ alum Kevin Nealon, “Survivor” host Jeff Probst and Playboy’s™ Hugh Hefner with one time girlfriend Bridget Marquardt.


Being that these are pay-cable series, expect a fair amount of swearing, some nudity and other adult-oriented humor!
