'Party Down' preview: Kristen Bell is back as Uda

kristen-bell-party-down.jpg Kristen Bell returns to "Party Down" on Friday (June 4) as Uda Bengt, and she's just as prickly as she was when we last saw her.

Uda, you may recall from the Starz comedy's first season, is the hyper-efficient team leader for Valhalla, the Party Down crew's catering rival -- or, you know, the Yankees to Party Down's Double-A farm team. In the clip below, Uda and Valhalla are working the Party Down company picnic, which gives her a chance both to surprise her boyfriend Henry ( Adam Scott) and to talk about their relationship.

The surprise part works, in a manner of speaking, but the relationship talk gets off to a bit of a rocky start thanks to the chatter on Uda's ever-present earpiece.

"Party Down," a newly minted Television Critics Association Awards nominee for best comedy, airs at 10 p.m. ET Friday on Starz. (Be warned: The clip below contains a little bit of salty language.)
