Watch: Showtime's 'Happyish' Isn't Soft on Comedy in First-Look Tease

Showtime has released a first-look tease for their new series “Happyish.” The series, set to premiere April 26, stars Steve Coogan as Thom Payne, a 44-year old not quite ready for the new digital age his profession is suddenly thrown into. Kathryn Hahn plays his wife, Lee.

The short teaser focuses largely on the counterproductive mix of Thom’s erectial dysfunction pills and anti-depressants, it’s hard (no pun intended) to not laugh at the banter between Thom and Lee here. 

“Happyish,” created by “This American Life” contributor Shalom Auslander and directed by Ken Kwapis, is currently in production in New York. Check out the trailer below.
