The premise is as old as time: boy band heartthrob moves out of his family home and ends up crashing with the his mentor for a few weeks that turn into nearly two years and hijinks ensue. That’s the basic storyline of Happy Together, a sitcom coming to CBS in the fall that will be executive produced by aforementioned heartthrob, Harry Styles, and Ben Winston, the Late Late Show exec producer who let Styles sleep on his couch during the One Direction singer’s rocket rise to pop stardom.
The four-minute trailer for the series was revealed on Wednesday (May 16) and it features dashingly handsome Australian actor Felix Mallard, 20, playing Harry-alike Cooper James, who is forced to hide from the paparazzi in the suburban home of his super-square accountant, Jake (Damon Wayans Jr.) and wife Claire (Amber Stevens) after a breakup.
The traditional-looking sitcom plays up James’ good looks and affable nature and the couple’s dorky rituals, like recording unnecessarily elaborate musical answering machine messages and their general awkwardness around the superstar.
Happy Together will air on Mondays at 8:30 p.m ET on CBS.
