The ABC comedy "Happy Endings" has run out of time in its struggle to find its own happy ending. Deadline.com reports that leading studio Sony Pictures TV pulled the plug on efforts to find a new home for the show.
The move comes as the cast’s options expire today, the story notes. Sony tried hard to find another home, even before ABC decided to cancel the comedy earlier this year, ending its three-season run.
"Cable network USA, which is re-entering the half-hour comedy space this fall with off-network acquisition ‘Modern Family,’ originally expressed interest in early April," the report notes. "It entered talks with Sony immediately after ABC made the cancellation decision the Friday before upfronts but, three weeks later, the network opted not to proceed with the pickup to focus on its original comedy series. While USA was considered the only real play for ‘Happy Endings,’ Sony TV didn’t give up and continued to search for ways to keep Happy Endings until it ran out of time with the cast options."
