Interview with “Happy Endings” Writers Daniel and Matthew Libman
ABC is home to Happy Endings, one of the best comedies on television today. It’s quick-paced, cleverly written and packed to the gills with talent. It would seem like those ingredients would a renewed season make. But there is one ingredient that trumps all reviews and critical acclaim, and that special sauce is numbers. In an unprecedented move by a network, ABC has launched a campaign asking the viewers to “Save Happy Endings!”
I sat down with writers/brothers Daniel and Matthew Libman, who’ve been working on the show from the jump and have contributed tons of funny, including songs like “Love to the Power of Love” and the idea that Max needed to drive an ‘80’s limo. The brothers shared what it’s like to work on Happy Endings and weigh in on ABC’s campaign to save their show.
Hi, Daniel and Matthew! Google just told me that you guys are long time friends of David Caspe, the creator of Happy Endings.
Matthew: Yes! We’ve been friends since 3rd grade.
That’s so amazing!
Daniel: How else do you think we would’ve gotten hired on such an awesome show?
Matthew: Yeah, not only do I get to work with my brother, but also one of my oldest, best friends. It’s so much fun to go to work.
Come on get happy: Happy Endings‘ recently pulled episodes have found a home.
Last week’s two installments of the cult comedy — which were delayed in some markets due to ongoing coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings — have been rescheduled for this Friday, April 26, beginning at 8/7c.
Because of the change, Happy Endings‘ final pair of Season 3 installments are now slated to air Friday, May 3.
#3.22 – “Deuce Babylove 2: Electric Babydeuce” Episode Summary
#3.22 – “Deuce Babylove 2: Electric Babydeuce” – Penny’s mom, Dana, and Dave’s dad, Big Dave, are in town visiting, and these two lovebirds are not only going strong, they’ve decided to adopt a baby together, prompting Penny and Dave to react the only way they know how – irrationally. Meanwhile, Brad and Jane want some time just to themselves and decide to try to join an exclusive tennis club, but unfortunately Max is on the scent and they can’t shake him…or Alex.
Late-night American comedy Happy Endings moves at such a fast pace it leaves its cast members exhausted.
“I want to go home and mellow out,” said Zachary Knighton, whose character Dave was dumped at the altar by Alex at the start of season one.
“You get here and you get your script and think ‘I can’t believe I have to say all those words today’.”
Knighton and the rest of the cast had just returned from a three-week break the day we met on location at Paramount Studios in Hollywood.
“We are not at war but it’s a hard job; we’re not on the front lines but we are on the front lines of comedy fighting the good fight,” joked Casey Wilson, who plays Penny.
Plenty has changed since we left the characters at the end of season two, most notably, that Dave and Alex, played by Elisha Cuthbert, are back together.
“Zach and I were really excited about it because we hadn’t really got to show viewers what it was like for these two to be together, so it was more material to tackle and have fun with,” Cuthbert said.
“It is really great for Dave’s character, particularly because you really get to see why he was with my character, how we are very similar in a lot of ways. It has been a lot of fun.”
The reunion has, however, exposed how dumb both characters are.
“Dave has really become dumb this year, in the best possible way,” Knighton said. “I know Alex has all of a sudden become a believer in weird things like cobras, mythical creatures and ghosts. She is really afraid of ghosts. And Dave is just a dumb-dumb. Passionate, misguided, so emotional and earnest – and dumb.”
