Happyland is a soapy teen comedy exploring the underbelly of one of the country's most popular theme parks and those who work there. The project centers on Lucy, a cynical teen whose mother makes a living as a fairy tale princess, and explores the realities of growing up and falling in love while living in a make-believe world.
The project is written by Ben Epstein (Daddy's Girls); Smash's Neil Meron and Craig Zadan will executive produce.
Happyland makes the last preparations for the 4th of July events. After having checked the dates, Lucy has become persuaded that what Will's father told her is the truth. She cannot think of anything else and is on the verge of telling Ian about the truth but Elena tries to explain the risks if she does. Lucy and Elena are both surprised by James showing on their doorstep. When Lucy opens the door, James asks Elena how old her daughter is.
