It might not be Happy Endings, but it's close. Fans of that canceled sitcom can take solace in creator David Caspe's follow-up, the freshman NBC comedy Marry Me. Caspe's real-life wife (and Happy Endings alum) Casey Wilson is back, and the jokes come just as rapid-fire. But where Happy Endings had an ensemble cast, this time there's a couple at the heart of the comedy: Wilson and Ken Marino play Annie and Jake, a couple experiencing the bumpy road towards marriage. Caspe filled out our TV Guide Magazine showrunner survey to explain why Marry Me is worth the engagement.
Ironic that in a fall season where so many new romantic comedies are fighting for our attention, and maybe even our affection, I'm still waiting to fall in love. Maybe it's the Goldilocks syndrome of being necessarily picky: one's too gimmicky (Manhattan Love Story), one's too generic (A to Z), one's too self-consciously trendy (Selfie), none seems just right.
Last of the batch to arrive, and thankfully not the least, NBC's brash and hyper-verbal farce Marry Me (Tuesday, 9/8c) is at least worth falling in "like" with, especially if your own heart was broken by ABC's cancellation of Happy Endings a year or so ago. That show's executive producer, David Caspe, has cast the funniest female from that ensemble (Saturday Night Live veteran Casey Wilson) — who happens to be his real-life bride — as the maddening Annie, who's her own worst enemy when it comes to her six-year romance with the long-suffering Jake (an endearingly droll Ken Marino).
