I never saw Happy Endings
as Friends: The Next Generation
, beyond being about a group of late-20/early 30-something people. If anything, aside from the location, I felt Happy Endings
owed more to Scrubs
. Aside from both using Eliza Coupe, Happy Endings
did the quick-cut away that Scrubs
used for a character's (usually JD's) imagination. However, Happy Endings
usually did it for a flashback to what the character was talking about.
Edited to add
: Looks like it's been a week for Eliza Coupe
Happy Endings star Eliza Coupe and her husband Randall Whittinghill are to divorce.
Whittinghill – an acting coach - has filed divorce papers, claiming that they have split due to irreconcilable differences.
The divorce filing comes days after Sony Pictures confirmed it has given up its search for a new network for Happy Endings, following its cancellation by ABC.
