Scott understands there is potential for failure.
"That's the biggest risk -- that you screw it up and make a shitty movie," he said when asked about managing fan expectations. "Part of the reason the show worked is that there were no expectations and we were doing it completely in a vacuum. Even the second season, when the first season had aired, still no one knew what it was. We were just doing it because it was fun and we loved working with each other. Now that a lot of people know -- literally dozens of people know what it is -- there is going to be an expectation and we don't want to screw it up."
One way to guard against that? Keeping things in the "Party Down" family.
"I think the important thing is to not make it too big -- which I don't think would be a problem, because it's going to be a low budget thing anyway -- and not get an outside director to come in and spruce it up [and] stay with what we did and just make it exactly the way we made the show, and hopefully, it would keep it in a straight line."
