On The Good Doctor, Freddie Highmore plays a surgeon who, despite his savant syndrome, has mostly got it together. The character he plays in the upcoming romantic comedy, Almost Friends?

"I'm just dealing with some stuff right now," Charlie (Highmore) explains in the trailer for Almost Friends, debuting on Et. "Anxiety, rejection, inferiority, paralysis, character issues, moral issues. You know, life stuff."

In 2017, that’s a promising look for this new series from the Syfy channel, which casts comedy heavyweights Patton Oswalt and Christopher Meloni (who proved his comedy chops on “Wet Hot American Summer”) as its unusual pair.

Adapted from the graphic novel of the same name by Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson, “Happy!” follows Nick Sax (Meloni), “an intoxicated, corrupt ex-cop turned hit man – who is adrift in a world of casual murder, soulless sex and betrayal.
