‘Party Down’ will stream exclusively on Hulu starting this Friday

Here’s something to do for this Labor Day weekend that doesn’t involve inclement weather: stay inside and watch Party Down on Hulu. Starz’s cult comedy ran for two seasons starting in 2009, earning critical acclaim but never finding a large enough audience to keep going.

It’s a chance to see a group of actors who were on the precipice of bigger things, including Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation), Lizzy Caplan (M…

The man Pill asks for directions, but Siri shoots him down. “Sorry, Mikey and Tina,” Siri says, not sounding sorry at all. “Dre’s party is invitation only.” The Pills get sad. They’re out of luck. Fade to logos!
