“It’s not the pursuit of happiness that’s our problem, it’s our inability to accept when we have maxed out.” So begins the first-look teaser for Showtime’s dark comedy Happyish. Steve Coogan, Kathryn Hahn and Bradley Whitford star in the comedic, soul-searching examination of our pursuit of happiness and why it continues to be so elusive. The project’s fate was uncertain after the death of original star Philip Seymour Hoffman, but it was re-cast, re-piloted and re-ordered to series with Coogan tapped to succeed Hoffman in the role. Series also features guest stars Ellen Barkin, Carrie Preston, Molly Price and Andre Royo. Production is currently under way in New York. It’s set to premiere Sunday, April 26 at 9:30 PM. Check out the teaser above.
