Idina Menzel cast in Ellen DeGeneres-produced comedy ‘Happy Times’

Idina Menzel is headed for TV, starring in ‘Happy Times’ from Warner Bros. TV and Ellen DeGeneres’ A Very Good Productions. The half-hour comedy is slated for the 2015-16 development cycle and expected to start production this summer.

According to Deadline, the comedy is written by Randi Barnes and described as “a comedy about a woman (Menzel) in the public eye who’s ready to stop pretending she’s so damned happy all the time.” In other words, this character is ready to “Let It Go.” 🙂

Menzel has appeared on TV before, notably a 12 episode stint on Glee, but this is the first time she will be starring in her own series.

I’m very excited. It’s about time we see Idina do something else on TV other than sing that song from Frozen. She’s been singing that song for two years now on almost every single TV appearance.

In fact, just like you, I am singing that song right now as I write this because I can’t hold it back anymore.
