Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s Happy! gets SYFY premiere in November in US

Happy! gets its premiere in the US on the revamped SYFY channel Wednesday 29th November, based on the New York Times best-selling author Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s graphic novel of the same name.

The series from Universal Cable Productions  follows Nick Sax (Christopher Meloni, Law & Order: SVU) – an intoxicated, corrupt ex-cop turned hit man – who is adrift in a world of casual murder, soulless sex and betrayal. After a hit gone wrong, a bullet in his side and a monstrous child killer in a Santa suit on the loose, his inebriated life is forever changed by a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue winged horse named “Happy” (Patton Oswalt).
