LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Emmy winner Megan Mullally, 50, has joined the Starz comedy series "Party Down."
On the show about a Los Angeles catering team, she 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.
"Party Down" has been looking to fill the void left by the departure of Jane Lynch, who co-stars on Fox's new series "Glee." Production on the second season of "Party Down" begins in mid-September. The premiere is tentatively scheduled for April.
"Will & Grace" alumna Mullally most recently starred on ABC's "In The Motherhood".
i wish someone would cast her in a great show, in the motherhood was unwatchable :(
