[[Has brief:: '''''Star-ving''''' was an internet series starring David Faustino produced for Sony's streaming service Crackle in 2009. The series followed a fictionalized washed-up version of Faustino after his stardom on ''Married with Children'' as he tries to regain notoriety.]]
[[Has brief:: From the official series description: "With the money from ''Married… with Children'' gone, Faustino’s short stature, alcoholism, and sex-fueled Hollywood life have kicked him squarely in the cubes. ''Star-ving'' follows his second attempt at stardom. Pulling along his old buddy Corin Nemec ("Parker Lewis Can't Lose") Faustino dips into Coolio's stash, murders, binge drinks, and beats off - all to get back on top of the show biz heap."]]<ref>[https://web.archive.org/web/20141222011117/http://www.crackle.com/c/star-ving/just-one-drink/2438191 Archived Crackle article on ''Star-ving''.] Retrieved 11 Dec '19</ref> Episodes would run 5-9 minutes and would occasionally feature celebrities and former ''Married with Children'' cast members.
Episodes were released ad-supported on Crackle from January 2009 to March 2009. According to an archived show page (dead video player), these episodes were available until December 31st, 2014, at which point the episodes became completely unavailable through official streaming services. When the crackle PSP RSS feed was available, episodes could be downloaded to a user's PSP, making it possible episodes are still on PSP memory sticks. A DVD of the complete series was released in its time, but has since gone out of print and is not available.<ref>[https://www.amazon.com/Star-ving-Season-1-David-Faustino/dp/B002HMDSOY/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=star-ving&qid=1576099031&sr=8-1 Amazon page on ''Star-ving'' season 1 DVD (out of print).] Retrieved 11 Dec '19</ref> In addition, the Amazon page has two videos (one being a promo for the DVD, the other being a clip from the show) alongside some images from the show, including what the DVD case looked like as well. Some other clips have surfaced on YouTube, but almost all the episodes were lost for years afterward.
On January 7th, 2020, the entire series was found by LMW user SpooferJahk.<ref>[https://mega.nz/#F!rcExkKBB!VOUPdii2xdYbPPooSKc78Q MEGA folder of the complete series.] Retrieved 08 Jan '20</ref>
