Showtime’s premiered the first full trailer along with a poster for the upcoming new comedy series HAPPYish starring Steve Coogan, Kathryn Hahn, and Bradley Whitford and premiering on April 26, 2015 at 9:30pm ET/PT. The new show was created and written by author Shalom Auslander with Ken Kwapis (He’s Just Not That Into You, The Office) directing the first episode and serving as an executive producer. The cast also includes guest stars Ellen Barkin, Carrie Preston, Molly Price, and Andre Royo.
The Plot: Steve Coogan stars as Thom Payne, a 44 year-old man whose world is thrown into disarray when his 25 year-old wunderkind boss arrives, saying things like “digital,” “social” and “viral.” Is he in need of a “rebranding,” or does he just have a “low joy ceiling?” Maybe pursuing happiness is a fool’s errand? Maybe, after 44 years on this ludicrous planet, settling for happyish is the best one can expect.
