Universal Cable Productions’ "Happy!" is based on New York Times best-selling author Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s graphic novel of the same name. The series follows Nick Sax (Christopher Meloni, “Law & Order: SVU”) – an intoxicated, corrupt ex-cop turned hit man – who is adrift in a world of casual murder, soulless sex and betrayal. After a hit gone wrong, his inebriated life is forever changed by a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue winged horse named “Happy” (Patton Oswalt). Executive producers Morrison (“Batman,” “The Invisibles”) and Brian Taylor (“Crank,” “Gamer”) co-wrote the pilot teleplay. Neal Moritz, Pavun Shetty and Toby Jaffe of Original Film (“The Fast and the Furious” franchise), Meloni and showrunner Patrick Macmanus will also executive produce. Taylor directed the pilot.
Sax crashes a high-stakes poker game to win guns and cash for an escape from New York as Happy tries to convince him he's a father; ex-wife Amanda and ex-lover Merry team up to rescue Hailey.
Sax journeys through a dark past while he and Happy track his daughter; Merry and Amanda make a chilling discovery; Very Bad Santa coerces information out of Hailey about her dad.
Sax and Happy follow their fortunes to Chinatown; Blue's sister shows up seeking revenge for the murder of her sons; Merry's search draws her ever closer to Very Bad Santa.
Following a destructive family reunion, Sax and Happy go their separate ways; Merry is under investigation by Internal Affairs; Hailey and children are introduced to a far more terrifying prison.
Sax and Happy embark on lonely journey in which Sax stumbles on a new plan to negotiate for his daughter's release; Happy takes solace in the welcoming arms of another Imaginary Friend.
