Pilot News: NBC Orders Relationship Comedy From Happy Endings Creator David Caspe

Get More: Pilots

logo-nbc-300NBC and Happy Endings creator David Caspe are tying the knot.

The Peacock network has given a pilot order Marry Me, a single-camera comedy penned by Caspe.

The Mad About You-esque project centers on a longtime couple who realize getting engaged is harder than it looks.

Seth Gordon (The Goldbergs) is on board to direct and will serve as an EP alongside Caspe and Jamie Tarses.

Casting is forthcoming, but here’s something to keep in mind: Caspe is engaged to Happy Endings‘ Casey Wilson. Just sayin’.

  • Idea: Cast Zach Knighton and Elisha Cuthbert as the main couple, then cast Damon Wayans Jr., Eliza Coupe, Casey Wilson, and Adam Pally as their closest friends. Then just make the show be Happy Endings.

    • Wayans and Coupe both have pilots. Not a fan of Cuthbert. The other 3, go ahead!

  • Please do not let this person start any other show. The others were bad enough, don’t give him any format of any kind.

    • If you don’t like HE that’s fine it’s your opinion (although weird) but he hasn’t made any other shows so may I ask what you’re referring to?

  • Any excuse to have more Casey Wilson on my screen is a good one. It’d be nice to see her back on NBC.

    • I hope she’s in it, loved her as Penny. They were all so funny but she was my favorite. also can this show just please be Happy Endings? I have so much hate for ABC after they cancelled it.

  • Can we just bring back Jane and Brad and consider it a series?

    • Yes, please! The others were just ok, but Jane and Brad were always hilarious.

  • Glad David have a new show in the works. Hope some of Happy Endings cast that aren’t busy with new shows will get to star on show.

  • I have absolutely NO interest in watching anything EVER produced by NBC EVER again. Everytime I take a chance on a TV series, NBC always finds some way for their execs to interfere with the production of the said TV series and they always wind up getting it canceled.

    I seem to recall that the last TV series NBC produced, that I actually enjoyed, NBC execs started interfering with the day to day production of the TV series and ended up canceling it because the execs thought they knew more about the TV series than the actual producers, directors and the creator of the TV show.

    Does SMASH come to mind? Come to think of it, the last several TV shows that NBC did, they have ended up interfering with said show and ended up canceling it in return.

    NBC should not be in the business of producing anything higher than an amoeba.
