Goodbye 24, hello comedy for Elisha Cuthbert! The network confirmed today that it has picked up the single-camera comedy Happy Endings for fall that stars Cuthbert as a bride who breaks up with her groom at the altar. It’s one of three laughers that earned orders today by ABC. The others are Mr. Sunshine, a Matthew Perry (Friends) starrer about the owner of a sports arena, and Better Together, a comedy with Joanna Garcia (Privileged) that focuses on two sisters in different stages of their romantic relationships.
More pickups for fall are expected soon. ABC already ordered No Ordinary Family, the high-concept drama starring Michael Chiklis (The Shield) as the patriarch of a family with super powers.
