Idina to star in new pilot: Happy Time
New project for Idina! It was announced today Idina will star in Happy Time, a new half-hour comedy pilot produced by Ellen DeGeneres’ studio-based A Very Good Production and Warner Bros. Tv. Happy Time is a comedy about a woman in the public eye who’s ready to stop pretending she’s so damned happy all the time. It’s expected to start pre-production in the summer.
Fingers crossed for a pickup!
