Announcing its entire Fall and Winter TV schedule today, Syfy revealed the premiere date for its upcoming adaptation of Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s Happy!: Wednesday, November 29 at 10/9c. You can check out a trailer for the TV series, which premiered at Comic-Con International in San Diego, here.
According to an official press release from the network, “The series follows Nick Sax (Christopher Meloni, Law & Order: SVU) — 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’ (Patton Oswalt).”
Joining Meloni and Oswalt in the series are Money Monster’s Joseph Reitman, Patrick Fischler (Lost, Mad Men), Ritchie Coster (Blackhat) and Zabryna Guevara (Gotham).
The pilot episode was written by Morrison and Crank writer-director Brian Taylor, with Taylor also stepping behind the camera to direct. Morrison, Taylor and Meloni all serve as executive producers, along with Neal Moritz, Pavun Shetty and Toby Jaffe of Original Film, and showrunner Patrick Macmanus.
