About One Big Happy 

From Emmy winning producers Ellen DeGeneres and Liz Feldman, comes the new comedy series that reflects the multi-layered modern world we live in. 

A lesbian having a baby with her straight male best friend, who just met and married the love of his life and moved her into the same house isn't that crazy. Okay, maybe it's a little crazy. But hey, it happens!

Best friends since childhood, Lizzy (Elisha Cuthbert, Happy Endings ), a fun, hard-working, type-A lesbian, and her straight male best friend, Luke (Nick Zano, 2 Broke Girls ), an easygoing owner of a bowling alley, have been living together in Los Angeles and trying to have a baby via artificial insemination.

These friends have always shared their lives together, and shared the desire for a baby, so once they hit 30, they decided to go for it. After all, family is who you make it, right?

Well, that family now includes Prudence (Kelly Brook,Smallville), who Luke met at a club - just before Lizzy found out she was pregnant - and quickly moved from one-night stand to "the One."

A free spirit from England, Prudence has gone everywhere, done everything and has absolutely no boundaries - something Lizzy is not entirely comfortable with, especially when Prudence is sitting on Lizzy's furniture in all her naked glory. 

Life sure is about to get interesting for Lizzy and Luke. And Prudence. And when you add in Lizzy's sister and brother-in-law, and Luke's professional bowler buddy, things might seem a little unconventional. 

But, in truth, they're all ONE BIG HAPPY. We hope.

Why isnt there a new episode each week?

US TV shows often take breaks, and there are times when older, repeat episodes are screened instead of new episodes. This can happen at various points throughout the season, including Thanksgiving, Christmas and large sporting events (eg Superbowl and the Olympics).

When a new episode of a fast tracked show goes to air in the States, it will be available on OnDemand.

We'll keep each show site updated to let you know when we expect the next episode to be available.
