Exclusive: Kelly Brook has been tapped as one of the leads in NBC‘s multi-camera pilot One Big Happy, marking the first U.S. series regular role for the popular British actress/TV personality. Written by Liz Feldman and directed by Scott Ellis, One Big Happy revolves around two platonic friends since childhood — a lesbian, Lizzy (Elisha Cuthbert), and her straight male best friend, Luke (Nick Zano) — who have been living together and trying to have a baby via artificial insemination for some time. They finally get pregnant, just as Luke meets and impulsively marries the love of his life, pretty young British woman Prudence (Brook). Kind of a sexy Mary Poppins, Prudence is a free spirit with a refreshingly skewed perspective that Luke finds wholly enchanting. About to be deported, Prudence marries Luke in a whirlwind  and soon becomes a part of an unusual family unit. Warner Bros TV »

'Happy Endings' alum Elisha Cuthbert joins 'One Big Happy' from Ellen DeGeneres

20 February 2014 3:45 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Elisha Cuthbert is staying "Happy" ... although it's not the "Happy" fans want.

The "Happy Endings" alum just joined Ellen DeGeneres' gay-themed pilot "One Big Happy," Deadline reports. She will play the female lead in the NBC comedy pilot opposite Nick Zano

"One Big Happy" is about two platonic friends since childhood -- a lesbian, Lizzy (Cuthbert), and her straight male best friend, Luke (Zano). They live together and try to have a baby via artificial insemination, and they finally get pregnant ... just as Luke meets and impulsively marries the love of his life. Oops?

At least "Happy Endings" fans will get to see Cuthbert in another sitcom with "Happy" in the title, right? »

Birthday shoutouts go to Brian Litrell (above), who is 39, Gloria Vanderbilt is 90, Rihanna is 26, Anthony Head is 60, Cindy Crawford is 48, and Sandy Duncan is 68.

We were thrilled when Nick Zano was cast as the male lead on NBC’s One Big Happy, and there’s more cause for celebration as his Happy Endings co-star Elisha Cuthbert has snagged the female lead. The show “centers on two platonic friends since childhood — a lesbian, Lizzy (Cuthbert), and her straight male best friend, Luke (Zano) — who have been living together and trying to have a baby via artificial insemination for some time. They finally get pregnant — just as Luke meets and impulsively marries the love of his life.”

Adam Lambert at the Family Equality Council’s Annual Los Angeles Awards Dinner. A taste of what to expect from this week’s Hump Day.

Birthday shoutouts go to Laura Dern, who is 47, Elizabeth Banks is 40, Emma Roberts is 23, and Roberta Flack is 77. Here’s my favorite underrated and sadly lost Roberta song. It peaked at #58 in February 1984.

The Walking Dead returned to record ratings last night, easily outpacing Sochi in the demo.

Best Buds Derek Hough and Mark Ballas buy bachelor pad together. Bless their hearts.

Will Michael Sam Save the NFL From Its Homophobia?

How will news that Michael Sam is gay affect his NFL draft stock? Ugh. At least these Tweets are more supportive.

Congratulations on leading the way, @MikeSamFootball. That's real sportsmanship.

Nick Zano Set To Star In New Comedy From Ellen DeGeneres

10 February 2014 12:24 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

If you are a fan of shows such as Mom, 2 Broke Girls and the recently departed Happy Endings (Rip) Nick Zano might be a name you are already familiar with. But now he will be gracing our small screens more frequently now (thank god) as it was announced that he will be starring in One Big Happy, the new NBC comedy produced by Ellen Degeneres.

One Big Happy is being dubbed as a reversed Will & Grace, as it follows a lesbian named Lizzy and her straight best friend Luke (Zano). The story centres around the pair trying to get pregnant via artificial insemination, but when they finally get pregnant Luke impulsively marries the love of his life.

2 Broke Girls writer and producer Liz Feldman has penned the script. No air date has been set for the new comedy, but we can only hope it will bring the laughs!
