'Happy Endings' Creator David Caspe Signs New Sony TV Overall Deal
Sony Pictures Television isn't letting "Happy Endings" creator and executive producer David Caspe go anywhere. The writer-producer has signed a two-year overall deal with the studio, a studio representative confirmed to TheWrap.
Caspe served as the showrunner on "Happy Endings" for its three-season run. His other projects include Showtime's "Ball Street," which he co-wrote and executive produced, and as well as a project he's executive producing at Comedy Central.
He is also working on the Charlize Theron-produced film, "Ladies Night," for Skydance, with Fred Savage set to direct. Previously, he wrote the Adam Sandler movie, "That's My Boy.
Going into the deal, Caspe has also promoted associate Ian Durney to a creative executive overseeing development.
ABC canceled "Happy Endings," which USA was already considering picking up as part of its new comedy push, in May. But, the cable network ultimately passed. Sony TV confirms that it's still shopping the series.
