Here's the first fourteen minutes of the new series 'Happy Town', which premieres on ABC Wednesday April 28th. I'm a big fan of the fictional, quirky, small towns in Toobworld: Hooterville, Fernwood, Cicely, Dunn's River, Lynchboro, and Twin Peaks. I think Haplin, Minnesota, is going to fit right in with that bunch, especially the last two.
As you could see, there are some familiar faces just in those opening minutes - Amy Acker, MC Gainey, Abraham Benrubi, and Steven Weber. For those who watched 'October Road', you probably recognized Jay Paulson and Geoff Stults. (The show is produced by the guys who did 'October Road'; they're probably establishing a repertory company of their actors.)
So I'm hooked, but then that was probably a given. 'Twin Peaks' had me right to the very end....
