'Happy Endings' Casey Wilson to Star in NBC Pilot 'Marry Me'


'Happy Endings' Casey Wilson to Star in NBC Pilot 'Marry Me'

It looks like 2014 just might be The Year of Penny, as 'Happy Endings' alum Casey Wilson has been tapped to star in the NBC single-camera comedy pilot 'Marry Me.'

The project is said to be in the vein of 'Mad About You,' and is centered around a young couple who get engaged, and quickly realize that it's harder than it looks. The premise should hit pretty close to home for Wilson and executive producer/writer David Caspe (former 'Happy Endings' creator/showrunner) who are engaged in real life. 

Caspe wrote the pilot script, which will be directed by Seth Gordon. Gordon and Jamie Tarses will also serve as co-executive producers.

We got a good look at the way Wilson plays comedic relationship mishaps as Penny Hartz, so it will be nice to see her having found a man that will stick by her through all her shenanigans. This is some ah-MAH-zing news for those of us who are still mourning the loss of the gone-too-soon 'Happy Endings', and hopefully Wilson and Caspe will bring a little bit of that comedic magic over to 'Marry Me.' Now that's a happy ending. 

This isn't Wilson's only pilot this season: NBC has also picked up the comedy 'Mason Twins,' for which Wilson serves as writer/producer with her longtime writing partner June Diane Raphael.
