Elisha Cuthbert Lands Lesbian Lead in Ellen DeGeneres' 'One Big Happy' Sitcom

Happy Endings may have been canceled (never forget!), but Elisha Cuthbert is going to be happy once again, snagging the lead in One Big Happy, an upcoming sitcom pilot produced by Ellen DeGeneres. From TVLine:

In the multi-camera project, Lizzy (played by Happy Endings alum Cuthbert) and her straight male best friend Luke (2 Broke Girls‘ Nick Zano) live together and finally succeed in having a baby via artificial insemination — just as Luke meets and impulsively marries the love of his life (the yet-to-be-cast Prudence).

I'm never going to get over Happy Endings being canceled and abandoned, but it's great to see Cuthbert landing another big role. I was talking about One Big Happy with Popculturology's Anton Ali on Thursday, and we agreed that Happy Endings showed that she was an incredibly funny actress. Thanks to Happy Endings, Cuthbert has a much wider range of options. Cuthbert isn't the only Happy Endings alum on One Big Happy. Nick Zano, the show's male lead, previously played Penny's fiancé Pete on Happy Endings.

It's also funny to hear about Cuthbert working on a project of DeGeneres after Cuthbert rolled out her Ellen impression for a Happy Endings episode.

Besides the lesbian angle, the plot of One Big Happy sounds kind of similar to Friends With Kids, a movie that featured Adam Scott and Jennifer Westfeldt playing two friends who decided to have a kid together.
