"Becoming Elizabeth" is the fascinating story of the early life of England's most iconic Queen. Long before she ascended the throne, young Elizabeth Tudor was an orphaned teenager who became embroiled in the political and sexual politics of the English court.

His surviving children find themselves pawns in a game between the great families of England and the powers of Europe who vie for control of the country.

Starz today announced it is reviving the party and developing a six-part “Party Down” limited series. The new original comedy is being developed and executive produced by “Party Down” alumni Rob Thomas (“Veronica Mars,” “iZombie”) along with John Enbom (“iZombie,” “Benched,”), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man, Ghostbusters: Afterlife) and Dan Etheridge (“Veronica Mars,” iZombie”). Enbom also serves as showrunner. The limited series is produced for Starz by Lionsgate Television. “Party Down” follows a Los Angeles catering team – a sextet of Hollywood wannabes stuck working for tips while hoping for their “big break.” 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. “Before the cast of ‘Party Down’ became well-known television and movie actors and award winners, they were all wearing the same pink bowties as part of a less than competent team of Los Angeles cater-waiters while chasing their dreams of stardom on the STARZ series,” said Christina Davis, President of Original Programming for Starz. “Fans have been waiting more than 10 years for this revival to happen and we’re thrilled to be in development with Rob, Paul, Dan and John at the helm.” “At the end of 2019, the ‘Party Down’ cast and producers were all reunited at a retrospective for the show hosted by Vulture. We had such a good time that we wanted to find a way to get the team back together again,” said Rob Thomas. “The cast is so busy these days that finding a window where we can do it may require trigonometry, but we’re determined to make it happen.” The cult hit ran for two seasons on STARZ from 2009-2010 and starred Ken Marino (“Veronica Mars,” Role Models), Adam Scott (“Parks and Recreation,” “Big Little Lies”), Jane Lynch (“Glee,” “Criminal Minds”), Martin Starr (Knocked Up, “Silicon Valley”), Ryan Hansen (“Bless this Mess,” “Veronica Mars”), Lizzy Caplan (“Castle Rock,” “Masters of Sex”) and Megan Mullally (“Will & Grace,” “The Great North”). Both seasons are available on STARZ and for download or streaming via the STARZ app. Executive Vice President of Original Programming Karen Bailey is the executive overseeing “Party Down” on behalf of Starz.

Step Up-cstv

Inspired by the Step Up Lionsgate film franchise that grossed over $600 million at the worldwide box office, the series centers on Sage Odom (Ne-Yo) as the legendary founder of Atlanta’s famed High Water Performing Art School. Collette is the Queen of High Water, and Sage Odom’s partner in art, business, and love. Collette built and nurtured Sage’s visionary academy from the ground up. Grinding her way to the top with grit and resourcefulness, Collette earned a new role, manager of Sage Odom and his tour, all this while hiding a dark secret. As this secret comes crashing down on Sage, High Water, and the tour, Collette is tempted by an opportunity to step out of her role as the woman behind the man, to become the powerful woman in front of the man. Starz announced today that Rebbi Rosie, whose credits include dancing with the likes of Beyonce, Pharrell, J. Lo and Nicki Minaj, has joined its re-imagined “Step Up” series along with new series regular cast members Keiynan Lonsdale (“The Flash,” Love, Simon) and STARZ’s “Power” alum Enrique Murciano (“Bloodline,” Black Hawk Down). Additionally, returning favorite Terayle Hill (“Cobra Kai,” Judas and the Black Messiah) has been upped to series regular. “Step Up” is produced for Starz by Lionsgate Television. Beginning March 5, the first two seasons of the hit series will be available on STARZ across all platforms and airing on STARZ Fridays at 8PM ET/PT. Rebbi Rosie plays “Angel,” who has descended into the world of High Water with an air of mystery and a backpack full of cash. She’s running from the place she calls home, the seedy underworld of London’s organized crime families. Now, Angel has come to the one place in the world where she can make her dreams a reality, High Water. Battle ready and street wise, Angel is ready to take on High Water and prove that she belongs amongst the best dancers in the world, all while breaking the hearts of these American guys and gals hopelessly entranced by her mix of raw swagger and British charm. Keiynan Lonsdale plays “Tal,” in a re-cast role originally played by Petrice Jones. Once an outcast from Ohio, taken from his mother and dropped in the tough streets of Atlanta. Tal faced persecution for his eccentricities, his sexuality, and his refusal to submit to the expectations of others. Dancing his way into High Water, literally, beaten and bloodied, Tal became the pride of Sage Odom’s elite dance crew. Now, the lead dancer for Sage’s massive tour, Tal must continue to be the most crucial piece in a support system that carries his friends, his family, and a billion-dollar tour. He is lean, graceful, and courageous, just like his nickname: the greyhound. Enrique Murciano plays “Cruz,” a man hoping to carve his face into the Mount Rushmore of high profile, celebrity lawyers and who will do whatever it takes to claw his way to the primetime status of Cochran, Dershowitz, and Geragos, finally joining the pantheon of litigation gods. The case that will get him there, Sage Odom’s murder accusation. As Cruz fights through the intrigue and conspiracy to save Sage’s life and career, he can’t help but think to the future, imagining himself sauntering down a red carpet like an urban cowboy in his sharply tailored Dries Van Noten. Finally, Terayle Hill returns as a series regular, reprising the role of “Marquise” from the first two seasons. He joins previously announced series regular cast Christina Milian (“Collette”), Ne-Yo (“Sage Odom”), Faizon Love (“Uncle Al”), Jade Chynoweth (“Odalie”), Carlito Olivero (“Davis”), Terrence Green (“Rigo”), Eric Graise (“King”), Tricia Helfer (“Erin”) as and Kendra Oyesanya (“Poppy”). Created and executive produced by Holly Sorenson, Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot, who served as producers on the original Step Up films, will executive produce this latest chapter of the franchise through their Offspring Entertainment banner. Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan, who both co-starred in the original Step Up film, will also executive produce through Free Association production company and Everheart Productions, Inc., respectively. Erik Feig, who served as producer on all the films and oversaw the franchise while an executive at Lionsgate, is executive producing via his production shingle PICTURESTART. Bill Brown also serves as writer and executive producer, and Dawn Wilkinson will serve as director and executive producer. The series is inspired by the Lionsgate franchise spanning five films: Step Up, Step Up 2: The Streets, Step Up: 3D, Step Up: Revolution and Step Up: All In. The film series also inspired the live music and dance show “Step Up Dubai, All In!” at MOTIONGATE Dubai theme park. The first two hit seasons, which earned a passionate and devoted fan following on the YouTube platform, will be available exclusively on the STARZ App and On Demand prior to the launch of the new season. The new “Step Up” series will air on STARZ in the U.S. and Canada and on its international streaming platform Starzplay across Europe, Latin America and Japan.
