First the good news: NBC has picked up the pilot for a new comedy from Happy Endings creator David Caspe, according to Deadline. Marry Me, a single-camera sitcom, doesn’t sound like the most original idea in the world, as it is said to be “in the vein of Mad About You” and about a young couple that just got hitched. Because if there’s one thing that we don’t have enough of on television, it’s relationship sitcoms.
But in fairness to everyone involved, including Caspe as the executive producer and writer and Seth Gordon as the director, Happy Endings didn’t have the most original premise either (a group of young friends coping with life and relationships in a big city, oh my!) but Caspe’s clever wit and creativity, as well as one of the most underrated casts, helped create a rabid fan base that still isn’t ready to let Happy Endings go.
Now the bad news: Marry Me still isn’t Happy Endings. But hey, you know what? Let’s have a Happy Endings GIF party anyway!
Penny, no! I said it’s a GIF party, that means it’s happy!
