Syfy has pushed the premiere of Happy! back by a week, but shared some new images to hold fans over until then. The series originally targeted November 29 for its premiere, but Syfy will hold off on airing the pilot for another week. Now, the series will debut on December 6 at 10/9c. In the meantime, the network has shared a collection of new photos from the show's pilot episode.
Happy! is an adaptation of Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson's Image Comics series of the same name. According to the official synopsis, “the series follows Nick Sax — an intoxicated, corrupt ex-cop turned hit man — who is adrift in a world of casual murder, soulless sex and betrayal. After a hit gone wrong, his inebriated life is forever changed by a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue winged horse named ‘Happy.’”
The show stars Christopher Meloni as Sax and Patton Oswalt as Happy. Executive producers Morrison (Batman, The Invisibles) and Brian Taylor (Crank, Gamer) co-wrote the pilot. Neal Moritz, Pavun Shetty, Toby Jaffe, Meloni and showrunner Patrick Macmanus (Marco Polo) will also executive produce. Taylor directed the pilot.
