[TV] Philip Seymour Hoffman's Show Happyish Unlikely To Continue Production
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.03.2014



E! News reports that Philip Seymour Hoffman's upcoming Showtime series Happyish is "unlikely" to continue after his death. While a decision has not been made yet, a source said that the show tried for over a year to get Hoffman involved and he "drives every scene of the pilot."

The source said: "It is hard to imagine a way in which it could go on. His role would have to be recast and there weren't any other actors in serious consideration aside from Philip. If the show does move forward, the premiere would be delayed as pilot would need to be reshot."

A couple of weeks ago, Showtime announced it picked up ten episodes of the series, which was written by Shalom Auslander. Hoffman played Thom Payne, who gets the "gift of insignificance" on his birthday, along with a new boss.

Showtime president David Nevins said at Showtime's TCA press tour last month: "Happyish is a very personal comedy starring one of the really great actors of our time, Oscar-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman. Happyish is about the fear—in this world of 25-year-old CEOs and 27-year-old billionaires—of becoming culturally irrelevant at a surprisingly young age. Hoffman plays Thom Payne, a successful but self-loathing creative director at a New York ad agency."

After his death, Showtime released the following statement: "Philip Seymour Hoffman was one of our generation's finest and most brilliant actors. He was also a gifted comedic talent. It was a great privilege and pleasure to work with him and we are all absolutely devastated by this sudden loss. Our thoughts go out to his family at this very difficult time."
