Party Down, season premiere at 10pm on STARZ
– This original comedy about cater-waiters in LA struggling to get their big break in show business is back for a second season with new cast member Will & Grace’s Megan Mullally as Lydia Dunfree, a recently divorced mom who moved to LA seeking stardom for her 13-year-old daughter Escapade. Unlike Megan’s character in Will & Grace, Lydia is eternally optimistic and naïve, so this should be fun! I’m super excited to see Megan Mullally back on TV in a recurring role. Jane Lynch, Kristen Bell, and Steve Guttenberg all make guest appearances this season!
Gravity, series premiere at 10:30pm on STARZ
– Gravity is an offbeat dark comedy about a support group for people who have attempted suicide.

Breaking Bad‘s Krysten Ritter and Ivan Sergei star as two star-crossed lovers from very different worlds who find each other through the support group joined by the likes of an aging supermodel, construction worker, hormonal teenager, and picture-perfect housewife as the group learns to live and love again in New York City.
