Comedy Series to Feature 'Happy Days' Reunion THR
A mini-"Happy Days" reunion in the works for a cable comedy series. The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed reports that Scott Baio's Nick at Nite comedy series "See Dad Run" booked an appearance by “Happy Days” creator Garry Marshall.
Baio's career started on "Happy Days" when Marshall cast him as Fonzie's younger cousin, Chachi Arcola, the story notes. The episode of “See Dad Run” in which Marshall will appear in is directed by his son, Scott Marshall, the piece adds.
Garry Marshall will play the TV dad to Baio's character. Marshall’s character is a former ladies’ man who wants to settle down now that he's in his 70s, the story adds.
The episode will be taped this week on Paramount's Stage 19, the same soundstage where "Happy Days" was taped during its run, the piece notes.
“See Dad Run” debuted in October 2012 and is in its second season on Nick at Nite.
