Funny, charming and uplifting, The Happys is a delightful brand-new comedy-drama about sexual awakenings, Hollywood stardom, sushi burritos and spider bites.
Twenty-one year old Tracy (Amanda Bauer) walks in on her boyfriend Mark (Jack DePew) having sex with a man and decides to leave him. After assessing her limited options, she returns to Mark with a deal: if he agrees to marry her, she’ll forget the incident ever happened. Mark accepts her terms, but neither fully understands the sacrifices they have to make.
As their relationship deteriorates, Tracy’s world opens up when she befriends the quirky residents in her Los Feliz neighborhood: Sebastian (Rhys Ward), a troubled recluse who closed the door to society after being bitten by a poisonous spider; Luann (Janeane Garofalo), a former child star and true free spirit; Krista (Melissa McBride), Mark’s hard-charging talent manager; Jonathan (Stephen Guarino), a gay magazine reporter; and Ricky (Arturo del Puerto), a hot Mexican man with a failing food truck. As Tracy discovers her sense of self and true passion for cooking, she is the catalyst for all of them to grow and connect in unforeseen ways.
