Pilot Scoop: Reno 911! Cop to Play Sean Hayes' Boss in NBC's Happiness Comedy

happinessFormer Reno 911! officer Thomas Lennon has joined the cast of NBC’s Sean Hayes-fronted comedy pilot (tentatively titled Happiness), TVLine has learned.

The project, from Better Off Ted creator Victor Fresco, centers on a man (Hayes) attempting to both parent the teenage daughter who just moved in and appease a temperamental  boss.

Lennon will play said temperamental boss.

  1. They have me interested. I don’t know about the title,

  2. Yeah, the tentative title blows, but Hayes, Lennon, and Fresco make this one a show to look out for this fall.

    Is Sean Hayes gay in the show? Is it basically like Jack gets a child in his teens that’s a female rather than a male?

    Confused – I just read he is doing the new version of the Odd Couple too (and a guest role on Goldbergs). Is there enough time in the day for all this!?
