NBC and David Caspe are gearing up to walk down the comedic aisle together. The Peacock network has granted a pilot order to the 'Happy Endings' creator for a single-camera comedy called 'Marry Me.'
The project, which is said to have a 'Mad About You'-esque type feel, will center around a longtime couple who start to realize that getting engaged is much harder than it looks. (A sentiment probably every bride-to-be on the planet could attest to, wouldn't you say?)
Incidentally, Caspe popped the question to his former 'Happy Endings' star and girlfriend of two years, Casey Wilson, last September. Perhaps art is imitating life a little bit? Either way, we're thrilled to see what becomes of this.
'The Goldbergs's Seth Gordon is on board to direct the upcoming series and will also serve as an executive producer alongside Caspe and Jamie Tarses. And while casting is forthcoming, let us just once again remind you that Wilson — aka Penny Hartz — is getting married to Caspe. After all, in Hollywood it's all about who you know, right?
And since 'Happy Endings' was unjustly canceled last year (still not over it, by the way), the actress most likely has some free time on her hands. Just throwing it out there...
Regardless, this sounds like a very promising project that definitely deserves its chance to shine. After all, there's no such thing as too many great sitcoms (at least not in our households).
Now let the casting speculation commence!
