    Default One Big Happy

    This might have been reported in news but since it is a new show which will hopefully make it, thought we should have a separate thread for future posts.

    Looks like NBC has picked up this show which Ellen will exec. produce. That is good news.

    'One Big Happy' Cast Credits DeGeneres for Laughs

    NEW YORK May 13, 2014 (AP)
    By ALICIA RANCILIO Associated Press
    When Ellen DeGeneres decided to executive produce a new comedy for NBC, she clearly didn't take the job lightly.
    In fact, the cast said Monday at NBC's presentation to advertisers that she warmed up the audience before the taping of the pilot.
    "Ellen did, I'd say about 10 minutes of warming up the crowd," recalled actor Nick Zano. "We hear Ellen doing standup and the crowd roaring and we're like, 'Damn ... I hope we're as funny as that,'" he joked. "She set the bar high and we just had to come close to matching."
    "One Big Happy" is about a straight guy (Zano) who decides to have a baby with his gay best friend (Elisha Cuthbert.) The plan gets complicated when Zano's character falls in love with someone else, a British woman played by Kelly Brook, and marries her so she can stay in the country.
    Cuthbert hopes she does her character justice and makes DeGeneres proud.
    "I'm playing a lesbian and she is the coolest lesbian on the planet."

    Looks like this show is going to go ahead. See interview with one of the stars, Kelly Brook, who thinks Ellen is a great boss.

    Thanks for that

    I'm interested to see how Kelly Brook does with this, over here she is mainly known for being a glamour model and for who she dates (A bit like the Kardashian's I guess, but not as annoying!) She has done some presenting for breakfast TV and has acted in some stuff, but she's certainly not known for her acting (And has had some pretty poor reviews to be honest!) But I trust Ellen to know what she's doing and if she says she's okay, then I guess she must be!

    One Big Happy is going to premiere Tuesday at 9:30 pm on NBC.

    At the moment I'm seeing two shows scheduled, which is pretty much the limit of my DVR schedule range.

    Is it just me or do you hear the sound of tweets too? What about facing a book?

    The cast of One Big Happy will be on Ellen's show tomorrow, and I think she is hoping that people will tweet during the airing of One Big Happy tomorrow night.

    The Huffington Post is reporting that One Big Happy has been cancelled...

    The cast is tweeting about it so it must be so.
