Premiering March 17 on NBC, One Big Happy centers on Lizzy (Happy Endings alum Elisha Cuthbert) and Luke (Nick Zano), lifelong best friends who decide to raise a family. Lizzy’s a lesbian and Luke seems like the eternal bachelor – until he gets married to a British girl named Prudence (Kelly Brook). Ellen DeGeneres is an executive producer of the freshman show.
Having strong and wonderful women in his life should be an embarrassment of riches for Luke, but this unconventional family dynamic does have its share of issues (hence the comedy).
During our interview with the actors, Zano talked about the “fear bond” he has with Cuthbert and Brook during their tape nights of One Big Happy (Cuthbert humorously describes it as a “terror bond”).
