October is here and with it comes a fresh new batch of fall premieres to keep you company! Kicking off the month comes two new comedies from CBS.
First up is Happy Together, a multi-cam sitcom loosely inspired by the life and times of Harry Styles. Yes, you heard that right. Happy Together is loosely based on a period in Styles's life during which he crashed on the couch of Ben Winston, a partner at James Corden's production company Fulwell 73, during the height of his One Direction fame.
In the show, Styles's counterpart, pop star Cooper James (Felix Mallard) shows up at his accountant's doorstep while trying to avoid the spotlight after a public breakup with his movie star ex. While accountant Jake (Damon Wayans Jr.) and wife Claire (Amber Stevens West) enjoy the shake up of their routine married lives, how long can the excitement really last until their unusual living situation comes crashing down around them?
Up next is The Neighborhood, which stars another New Girl alum, Max Greenfield, as well as the legendary Cedric the Entertainer. When Dave Johnson (Greenfield) moves his family to L.A. for his wife's new job, the Johnsons find that their midwestern sensibilities aren't quite garnering the welcome that they expected. Winning over Calvin Butler (Cedric the Entertainer) seems to be the key to winning over the neighborhood, but Dave has a lot of work to put in before he can call L.A. home.
So can fake Harry Styles hold a candle to real Harry Styles? Are Max Greenfield and Cedric the Entertainer too odd to be a good odd couple? You can tell us right now by voting in our annual Fall TV Popularity Contest! Let us know what you thought of these new shows and others right here.
