‘Happy Endings’ Writer Brian Gallivan Sells a Show to ABC


Brian Gallivan, a staff writer for the recently-canceled ABC sitcom Happy Endings, has just sold another show. Deadline reports that Gallivan is writing an untitled comedy about a father who, dreaming of being on vacation all year, moves his family to New Hampshire where they open a group of tourist cottages. Gallivan will also produce alongside Will Gluck, director of Easy A and producer of the upcoming Michael J. Fox Show. This is the second show Gallivan and Gluck have in development for the 2014-15 TV season together after The McCarthys, a multi-camera family comedy at CBS based on pilot the network narrowly passed on this season.
