'Happy Endings' Members Reunite and Score Pilot Deal at Comedy Central


'Happy Endings' Quartet Land Pilot Deal at Comedy Central


It's time for a 'Happy Endings' reunion! Well, sort of.

Four members of the former ABC series have decided to join forces once more in a brand new project for Comedy Central. Creator David Caspe is teaming up with fellow writers (and brothers) Matthew and Daniel Libman for an upcoming single-camera comedy pilot 'Duty,' which will star 'Happy Endings' alum Gil Ozeri.

The general premise of the pilot will focus mainly on the character of Kyle, played by Mike O'Gorman ('Ugly Americans'). Kyle is a former football star who loses everything and is forced to start anew by moving back to his hometown and taking a job on the local police force opposite his childhood best friend, Lonnie (Ozeri). Laura Steinel ('Draft Day') will also star, playing Kyle's former flame, Jamie.

The Libman brothers will pen the script and co-executive produce the pilot along with Jamie Tarses, who previously worked with them on the 'Happy Endings' series.

Caspe is keeping himself pretty busy these days, with 'Duty' already marking his third pilot order of the season. In addition to this Comedy Central project, he's also writing and executive producing CBS' 'Cuz-Bros' as well as NBC's 'Marry Me' pilot, the latter of which stars Caspe's fiancée and 'Happy Endings' vet Casey Wilson.

In fact, many of the former stars of the short-lived cult comedy have gone on to receive other exciting TV offers. Damon Wayans Jr. has returned in a series regular capacity on 'New Girl;' Eliza Coupe is gearing up to star in USA's courtroom comedy 'Benched;' Elisha Cuthbert has been cast in NBC's 'One Big Happy;' Zachary Knighton is joining FOX's new pilot 'Weird Loners;' and Adam Pally's gotten bumped to a series regular position on 'The Mindy Project.'

Overall, we'd say things are looking pretty amazing.
