Happy! comes to Syfy in 2018

Meloonies rejoice! That's what fans of SVU hunk Christopher Meloni are called, right?! Happy! is going to series, and we can't wait to see Meloni's hard-boiled New York detective go toe-to-toe with Bobby Moynihan's loopy-winged-animated-unicorn-type-creature. Here's the lowdown.

Happy! is based on New York Times best-selling authors Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s graphic novel of the same name. The series follows Nick Sax (Christopher Meloni, Law & Order: SVU) – an intoxicated, corrupt ex-cop turned hit man – who is adrift in a world of casual murder, soulless sex and betrayal. After a hit gone wrong, his inebriated life is forever changed by a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue winged horse named “Happy” (Bobby Moynihan, Saturday Night Live).

Meloni tweeted a spoiler-laden, loquacious reveal about the show earlier this year.... juuuuust kidding, but we're thinking he's just getting into character.
