Showtime shares first look at Steve Coogan-starring 'Happyish'

Posted on


The first-look at Showtime’s new series, Happyish, features Steve Coogan as Thom Payne, who is less-than-happy with the direction his life is taking. 

“It’s not the pursuit of happiness that’s our problem. It’s our inability to accept when we’re maxed out,” said Dani Kirschenbloom (Ellen Barkin).

The show, originally set to star the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, follows Coogan’s Payne on his quest to figure out how to be happy in a world he doesn’t fully feel in touch with. Is “happy-ish” the most he’s capable of? 

The series also stars Bradley Whitford, Kathryn Hahn, and guest Barkin. It’s set to premiere Sunday, April 26 at 9:30 p.m. ET.
