Congratulations are in order for Elisha who will be returning to the small screen next year in her NBC comedy, One Big Happy! I can’t wait to see Elisha in a new role.
Warner Bros. TV sitcom “One Big Happy” was penned by Liz Feldman (“2 Broke Girls”) who exec produces with director Scott Ellis for Ellen DeGeneres’ WBTV-based Very Good Production banner. Elisha Cuthbert, Nick Zano, Brandon Smith, Rebecca Corry and Chris Williams star.
Cuthbert plays a gay woman who decides to have a baby with her longtime best friend, who complicates the situation by getting married to a free-spirited woman.
we can finally rejoice! Elisha has landed a pilot at NBC; it was announced a couple of days ago.
From Happy Endings to a Happy possible new beginning?
Elisha Cuthbert has landed the female lead in One Big Happy, NBC’s Ellen DeGeneres-produced sitcom pilot about a lesbian, her lifelong male BFF and their newly complicated plan to make a baby together.
In the multi-camera project, Lizzy (played by Happy Endings alum Cuthbert) and her straight male best friend Luke (2 Broke Girls‘ Nick Zano) live together and finally succeed in having a baby via artificial insemination — just as Luke meets and impulsively marries the love of his life (the yet-to-be-cast Prudence).
DeGeneres is exec-producing the pilot with production partner Jeff Kleeman, director Scott Ellis and writer Liz Feldman (2 Broke Girls).
I’m so happy for her and added bonus is Ellen DeGeneres! I absolutely loved the Happy Endings episode when Elisha (as Alex) dressed up as Ellen for Halloween. We’ll keep you posted on the status of the pilot as the news comes in… here’s hoping for a series order!
There’s no word yet on if we’ll see Elisha reprise her role as Kim Bauer on the upcoming 24: Live Another Day… here’s hoping we’ll see Elisha share the small screen once again with Keifer Sutherland.
Elisha’s been very quiet lately, since tieing the knot, and I will be finishing up the remainder of the series, Happy Endings in the gallery for your viewing pleasure.
Also, no word yet on Elisha rejoining the fold for the rebirth of 24. I wish they would announce her but sadly it may not happen or they’re keeping a very tight lid on that.
So stay tuned!
Sorry boys, Elisha is officially off the market.
Toronto Maple Leaf captain Dion Phaneuf and Hollywood actress Elisha Cuthbert married
Toronto Maple Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf married actress Elisha Cuthbert at a private ceremony on Saturday.
Phaneuf, 28, and Cuthbert, 30, have been together since 2008 when the defenceman was a member of the Calgary Flames.
Cuthbert is best known for her roles on the children’s program “Popular Mechanics for Kids” and the television drama “24.”
The ceremony took place at St. James Catholic Church in Summerfield, P.E.I., while the reception was held at the couple’s summer residence in New London.
The couple drove away from the ceremony in a vintage Camero SS that Cuthbert gave to Phaneuf as a wedding gift.
Huge news 24 fans! According to Deadline Hollywood…
The clock may start ticking again on Fox. I’ve learned that the network is looking to bring back signature real-time drama 24 as a limited series. Kiefer Sutherland is in early talks to reprise his Emmy-winning role as Agent Jack Bauer. No deals are in place, but Fox is eying 24 as part of its recent push in limited event series. Since 24 ended its eight-season run on Fox in 2010, there has been an effort to continue the story as a feature, which ultimately didn’t take off.
Great news Happy Endings fans! USA may pick up the series and give it a new home (fingers crossed) if ABC doesn’t pick it up! Let’s make this happen. I have been so sick of ABC and what they’ve done to Happy Endings. It was perfect behind Modern Family and then this year they want to move it to Tuesday nights where there are a TON of things on TV … most of which are ratings bonanza hits for their networks. It never had a chance; not to mention the horrid double up with airings on Sundays as well before banishing it to Friday nights post Last Man Standing & Malibu Country season finales. Pretty much, ABC doesn’t know how to schedule jack. Here’s a little bit from Deadline Hollywood!
EXCLUSIVE: Despite ratings hardship and real and clear danger of cancellation, Happy Endings may live up to its title even if ABC opts not to order a fourth season. I hear that Sony TV, the leading studio behind the underrated comedy series, has quietly reached out to a couple of networks, including USA Network and NBC, about the possibility of continuing the comedy there if ABC does not renew it. I hear USA, which has been looking to break into the half-hour original series space, has expressed interest and has had discussions about picking up Happy Endings in case of a cancellation by ABC.

I hope this works out because Happy Endings could do really well with USA!
