ABC says Welcome To Happy Town
Happy Town is coming to ABC Wednesday April 28th at 10pm.
The show is described as a modern day Twin Peaks, starring Sam Neill, Steven Weber, Dean Winters, Robert Wisdom, Amy Acker, and Geoff Stults, and many other well known television and movie stars will have recurring roles.
The show takes place in Haplin, Minnesota a.k.a Happy Town, where every smile holds a secret and in this town there is one thing on everyone`s mind, "Who is the Magic Man?"
The "Magic Man" is a kidnapper who terrorized the town in the past, and when a new crime is committed it brings all these unresolved fears to the surface. Steven Weber plays John Haplin, who's daughter was a victim of the magic man. Sam Neill plays Merritt Grieves whom is one of Haplin's newest residents, he owns a film memorabilia shop and he seems strangely sinister. Could one of these two be the " Magic Man " you never know but one thing is for sure, the producers of the show promise not to drag out story lines and make you wait all season long for answers, they will give the answers quickly and they are supposed to be shocking.
Lets hope ABC lets this show last longer then Eastwick, another promising show that I feel was prematurely canceled, but let's just say I am cautiously optimistic that Happy Town will survive its premier season on ABC.
