Party Girl is an American sitcom based on the 1995 film of the same name[1] that aired on Fox in September 1996.[2] The series stars Christine Taylor, Swoosie Kurtz, and John Cameron Mitchell.


Christine Taylor stars as Mary, a girl whose mother has died leaving her to find herself in the clubs and parties of New York City. She is finally given a chance to prove herself thanks to Godmother Judy (Kurtz), who hires her to work in a library.

Marketing of the series centered around Taylor's recent popularity for her portrayal of Marcia Brady in The Brady Bunch Movie. One television commercial featured a parody of the opening/closing credits of The Brady Bunch, but Taylor appeared (as Mary) in each box. Although six episodes were filmed, only four were aired and the show was quickly cancelled.
