Megan Mullally Parties Down With Starz
Mullally, 50, will play Lydia Dunfree, a middle-aged refugee from a lousy marriage who leaves small town life to move to Hollywood where her 13-year-old daughter Escapade hopes to make it as an actress. While the younger endures the audition process, her naïve and eternally optimistic mother Lydia feels honored just to be among the show business “pros” of the Party Down catering company. Her search for Mr. Right only complicates matters for Lydia, but ups the laughs on the show.
Party Down will return with a second season in April 2010 on Starz.
Mullally also stars in the Fame reboot, which hits theaters Sept. 25.
