lost happy endings episode

The world deserved more of ABC’s Happy Endings. The David Caspe-created comedy only lasted three seasons, from 2011 to 2013, and it’s been too long since we’ve seen Penny (Casey Wilson), Dave (Zachary Knighton), Max (Adam Pally), Brad (Damon Wayans, Jr.), Jane (Eliza Coupe), and Alex (Elisha Cuthbert) together. The good news is, the gang recently reunited for the episode “Happy to Be Here,” which was performed live by the cast at EW’s PopFest.

In the proud tradition of Dumb and Dumber and Romy & Michelle’s High School Reunion, the Sundance comedy Ass Backwards features two complete morons who might be tragic if they weren’t so irrepressibly pleased with themselves. June Diane Raphael (NTSF:SD:SUV) and Casey Wilson (Happy Endings) star as Kate and Chloe, two NYC gals who’ve been BFFs since they placed dead last in their hometown pageant as kids.

When they’re invited back to celebrate the pageant’s 50th anniversary, they embark on a road trip that, naturally, gets them tangled up in all sorts of insane shenanigans. Alicia SilverstonePaul Scheer, and Vincent D’Onofrio also star. Watch the first trailer after the jump.
