Ellen DeGeneres Hits Her Stride with ‘One Big Happy’

Published March 20, 2015

NBC’s latest sitcom, One Big Happy, premiered Tuesday. One Big Happy is produced by Ellen DeGeneres.

The show centers around a lesbian named Lizzy (Elisha Cuthbert) and her straight best friend Luke (Nick Zano) who decide to have a baby together. Just as Lizzy gets pregnant, Zano meets, falls in love with and marries a British woman Prudence (Kelly Brook) who could be getting deported.

“It’s a modern version of family, but at the same time, I think a lot of people will be able to relate to it,” Cuthbert said on The Talk.

When Time magazine asked if Cuthbert if she was worried lesbians wouldn’t find the humor surrounding her character funny, she said she wasn’t worried with Liz Feldman and Ellen DeGeneres in charge.

“I thought that their taste would be appropriate and that they would have a much better gauge about whether we were going down the right path with certain jokes or not,” she said. “I was laughing out loud, too, [at] really great jokes, like when Luke says to me, ‘I knew you were gay when you wore a top hat to prom.’ I mean it’s just funny stuff. It’s crazy and goofy and it’s real friends poking fun at one another.”
