Next Episode of Happyish is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
Happyish is a scathing examination of our pursuit of happiness, a pursuit that might just be the very thing causing our unhappiness in the first place. The new half-hour pilot stars Steve Coogan as Thom Payne, a 44 year-old man whose world is thrown into disarray when his 25 year-old "wunderkind" boss arrives, saying things like "digital," "social" and "viral." Is he in need of a "rebranding," as his mentor insists, or does he just have a "low joy ceiling," as his corporate headhunter suggests? Maybe pursuing happiness is a fool's errand? Maybe, after 44 years on this ludicrous planet, settling for happyish is the best one can expect.
A 44-year-old man's search for happiness makes him miserable. In the opener, Thom comes under pressure to rebrand himself after his agency hires Swedish creative directors to evolve the company. Meanwhile, a headhunter advises Thom to admit he's hit his joy ceiling.
Thom loses his couch and gets a lesson in corporate America from Jonathan that involves German pornography. Meanwhile, the Swedes push a new campaign; and Lee's bubble is invaded when her mother sends Julius a package.
When Julius gets ill, Thom's Catholicism and the Geico Gecko offer dueling takes on the meaning of suffering. Meanwhile, MGT departments begin the downsizing process.
Julius gets suspended for hitting Fitzgerald Miller; the Swedes continue to trouble Thom at work; Jonathan introduces the official Nazi handbook at a meeting.
Thom gets a life lesson when his train strikes and kills a commuter; Gottfrid questions Thom's priorities when he misses a morning meeting; Lee finds a new studio with a Holocaust survivor landlord.
A new store at a local mall sends Lee into a tailspin; Thom takes over a campaign and consoles Larry; the Swedes try to steal Lorna while offering Thom another big account.
Thom travels to LA. Lee gets a new cell phone and comforts Julius.
Thom gets forced out of his office to make way for the "Ideation Room"; Lee vents on "Frozen," while helping out as lunch mom, and meets Sandy; James Deen gives three fool-proof tips on success in porn/corporate America.
