The Hollywood Reporter is showcasing the new dark comedy from studio STX and On the Day Productions (Melissa McCarthy). Melissa McCarthy will star and Brian Henson (The Muppet Christmas Carol) will be directing.
Per Hollywood Reporter: “The Happytime Murders takes place in a world where humans and puppets coexist, with the puppets viewed as second-class citizens. When the puppet castmembers of 1980s children’s TV show The Happytime Gang begin turning up dead, an alcoholic, disgraced LAPD detective turned private-eye puppet takes the case with his former human partner. ”
