USA Network Is Unlikely to Rescue Happy Endings


Nothing's final, but: A deal to bring ABC's canceled Happy Endings to USA Network appeared to be dead late Friday. Multiple sources tell Vulture that, despite intense negotiations and general agreement on financials, it now seems as if the characters from the Sony/ABC Studios-produced show are now unlikely to be welcomed at the network where Characters (are) Welcome. A USA Network rep declined comment late Friday, and reps for the studios could not be reached. All of this does not mean Happy is dead-dead. For one thing, negotiations can take radical and sudden turns, and USA's refusal to comment might indicate there's still a chance the situation will change and a deal will get done. What's more, we're already hearing other networks are mulling the idea of acquiring the show, including NBC and TBS. Stay tuned.
