The midseason comedy "Happy Endings" premieres tonight on ABC with a one hour block of two back-to-back episodes starting at 9:30 pm. The series will then move to its regularly scheduled timeslot of 10 p.m. starting next week.
The series revolves around the lives of a group of friends whose little group is rocked when the couple that brought them together, Alex and Dave, break up. This leaves the rest of the group (Max, Brad, Jane and Penny) in an awkward position of either trying to stay together as friends or having to choose sides.
The series stars Zachary Knighton ("Flash Forward"), Elisha Cuthbert ("24"), Eliza Coupe ("Scrubs"), Casey Wilson ("Saturday Night Live"), and Damon Wayans Jr. ("The Other Guys"). Directors who are working on the show include The Russo Brothers ("Community"), Fred Savage ("Party Down"), Troy Miller ("Mr. Show"), Lee Shallat-Chemel ("Arrested Development"), Matt Shakman ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") and Jay Chandrasekhar (Broken Lizard).
Guest stars who are scheduled to make appearances in Season 1 include such AST favorites as T.J. Miller, Rob Huebel, Nick Thune, Ian Roberts, Brett Gelman, Danielle Schneider, June Diane Raphael and Paul Scheer. It has also been reported that Damon Wayans (father of Wayans Jr., who plays Brad) will guest star in an upcoming episode as Brad's uptight father who comes to visit him.
