bradleywhitford

Emmy Award winner and Golden Globe nominee Bradley Whitford (The West Wing) has joined the cast of the SHOWTIME comedy pilot HAPPYISH, playing “Jonathan Cooke,” Thom Payne's boss and an advertising industry legend whose success is due in equal parts to his creative genius and moral cravenness. The new half-hour pilot will be filmed in New York next month, with Oscar® and Golden Globe® nominee Steve Coogan (Philomena, Alan Partridge) and acclaimed actress Kathryn Hahn (Revolutionary Road, We’re The Millers) in the lead roles of Thom and Lee Payne.

His other television credits include Trophy Wife, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Transparent, Alpha House, The Good Guys, ER, The Secret Lives of Men, Parks and Recreation, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Drunk History, The Mentalist, NYPD Blue, and Shameless on SHOWTIME.

CBS Cancels 'The Millers'

Pilot

Although there are some bright spots, It's been tough for half hour comedies to gain any traction this season and many are paying the price. Bad Judge, A to Z, Selfie and Manhattan Love Story have all been recently cancelled due to poor ratings. Well, you can add another one to that list. CBS has announced they are cancelling its sophomore comedy The Millers.

According to Deadline, the series will shoot one more episode then shut down production completely. While the show is still set to air this coming Monday's episode, it is unclear what will happen with the episodes already completed.

FOX Orders More 'Mindy Project'

The_Mindy_Project

There seems to be a little angel looking out for the Mindy Project. FOX announced that it has ordered six more episodes for the struggling comedy.

Originally, FOX announced a 15 episode third season for the series, but this additional episode order brings the total to 21 episodes and a hair away from a full season.

In it's third season, the comedy is averaging a 1.6 in the all important 18-49 demographic and 3.1 million viewers, which also includes seven days of DVR playback numbers.

Some may be scratching their heads when it comes to the additional episode order, but FOX is quick to point out that the show's ratings increase 99 percent when you include 30 days of playback across multiple platforms and the fact the series does well with female viewers.

Kathryn Hahn To Star In Showtime's 'Happyish'

kathryn

Acclaimed actress Kathryn Hahn (Revolutionary Road, We’re The Millers) will star in the female lead role of “Lee Payne” in the SHOWTIME comedy pilot HAPPYISH. The new half-hour pilot will be filmed in New York next month, with Oscar® and Golden Globe® nominee Steve Coogan (Philomena, Alan Partridge) previously announced as the male lead. HAPPYISH is a comedic, soul-searching examination of our pursuit of happiness, a pursuit that might just be the very thing causing our unhappiness in the first place.

Kathryn Hahn will play the role of Lee, Thom Payne's (Coogan) wife and mother to their six-year-old son Julius. Honest and direct to a considerable fault, Lee believes that people are good and the world can be a better place, which is probably why she is so pissed off: because we aren't, and it can't. But she loves Thom, and Thom loves her, even though they both loathe themselves. Hahn originally filmed the role of Lee Payne for the Happyish pilot in 2013 opposite the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. Her television credits include Parks and Recreation, Transparent, Girls, Hung, The Newsroom and Crossing Jordan. Her feature film credits include Revolutionary Road, Step Brothers, Afternoon Delight, Bad Words, We’re The Millers, Wanderlust, The Holiday, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, and the upcoming films The Visit, She’s Funny That Way and Tomorrowland.
