HAPPY! starring Christopher Meloni and Patton Oswalt is offiically making the leap from page to screen on Dec. 6.

The new original series from UCP premieres just in time for the holidays on SYFY. 

HAPPY! is based on New York Times best-selling author Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s graphic novel of the same name. The series 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, his inebriated life is forever changed by a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue winged horse named “Happy” (Patton Oswalt).

Executive producers Morrison (Batman, The Invisibles) and Brian Taylor (Crank, Gamer) co-wrote the pilot teleplay.

Neal Moritz, Pavun Shetty and Toby Jaffe of Original Film (The Fast and the Furious franchise), Meloni and showrunner Patrick Macmanus will also executive produce.

Taylor directed the pilot.

HAPPY! premieres Wednesday, December 6 at 10/9c on SYFY.
