The only way a Grant Morrison comic could ever possibly work on television would be if he directly involved – his work is just not in the purview of the average (or even quality) TV writers/producers.
Happy! Was developed by Morrison and Brian Taylor (from the graphic novel by Morrison and Darick Robertson) – who just happens to be one of minds behind the Jason Statham hit Crank. It’s a writing marriage made in every heaven and several of the seven hells.
The roster of big, medium and small names who made a splash in comedy, TV and film following their appearance in Wet Hot American Summer is pretty much legendary. If you don’t believe me, you haven’t seen the movie.
Now Netflix has released a teaser for an eight-episode series reuniting (at least) fifteen of those names. Check out the teaser trailer after jump.
