The last time Elisha Cuthbert starred in a sitcom with “Happy” in the title, she got to eat ribs and play with puppies (also, the show was great). She’s hoping puppy lightning strikes with NBC’s One Big Happy.
After fielding multiple offers, Cuthbert has been tapped as the female lead opposite Nick Zano in NBC‘s multi-camera pilot One Big Happy, from Warner Bros TV and Ellen DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production. The project reunites Cuthbert and Zano who had a recurring role on Happy Endings. Written by Liz Feldman and directed by Scott Ellis, One Big Happy centers on two platonic friends since childhood — a lesbian, Lizzy (Cuthbert), and her straight male best friend, Luke (Zano) — who have been living together and trying to have a baby via artificial insemination for some time. They finally get pregnant — just as Luke meets and impulsively marries the love of his life. (Via)
The premise leaves a lot to be desired, mostly because I don’t see the words “Hip Hop Santa” anywhere.
