ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Dec. 17 (UPI) -- Ken Marino, Adam Scott, Jane Lynch, Martin Starr, Ryan Hansen and Lizzy Caplan have been cast in "Party Down," a new series about a Los Angeles catering team.

Production has started in Los Angeles on the new original series from Starz Entertainment, in association with its television production sibling Starz Media.

This is the first series Starz Media is producing for Starz.

"Each episode of this half-hour comedy finds the hapless catering team working a new event -- and inevitably getting tangled up with the colorful guests and their absurd lives," Starz Entertainment said in a news release Wednesday.

The series was created and is executive produced by Rob Thomas, creator of "Veronica Mars" and "Cupid."

"Party Down" is slated to air in March as a companion to the returning comedy series "Head Case," starring Alexandra Wentworth.

"'Party Down' is going to be a terrific addition to our originals lineup and we're pleased to have it as our first in-house collaboration with Starz Media," Stephan Shelanski, executive vice president of programming for Starz Entertainment, said in a statement. "You can't ask for anything better than to have the powerhouse team of Rob Thomas and Paul Rudd attached as executive producers, as well as a highly talented cast."
