SYFY has released the first trailer for their new fantasy crime dramedy – Happy!. Check it out below.
The promo feels like watching a Law & Order on acid. Pretty much what I expected for a live-action adaption of the comic. The series is of course based on the comic book series of the same name created by writer Grant Morrison and artist Darick Robertson.
Synopsis: Nick Sax is an alcoholic ex-cop, turned hit-man who lives his days with drugs and cynicism. After he is shot and left for dead, he revives while in the care of paramedics and can now see a small, blue, winged unicorn named Happy. Happy is the imaginary friend of a little girl named Hailey that has been kidnapped by a deranged man dressed as Santa Claus and had escaped to seek Nick’s help in finding her. Nick and his new “partner” now must work together to save her.
The show stars Chris Meloni as Nick Sax, Lili Mirojnick as Det. Meredith McCarthy, Joseph Reitman, and Patton Oswalt as the voice of Happy!.
Happy! is set to debut on the SYFY starting December 6th, 2017.
