TORONTO, April 15 /CNW/ - A brutal murder unearths old mysteries in the quiet little town of Haplin, Minnesota when HAPPY TOWN premieres April 28 on /A\ (visit atv.ca to confirm local broadcast times). Airing Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT, the new, one-hour mystery thriller stars an ensemble cast including Sam Neill and Steven Weber and features multiple Canadians including Toronto-native and Gemini Award-nominee Sarah Gadon. Other recurring Canadian stars include Toronto-native Peter Outerbridge, Scarborough-born Dan Petronijevic, Timmins-native Natalie Brown, Sault Ste. Marie-born Joanna Douglas, and Nova Scotians Stephen McHattie and Steve Arbuckle. Shot in Port Hope, Ontario, HAPPY TOWN is anything but "happy". It's a town where the past has come back to haunt it and where "happy" and "terrifying" collide.
In HAPPY TOWN, the residents of the sun-splashed town of Haplin, Minnesota, also known as "Happy Town", have enjoyed an uneasy peace for the past five years, but that is about to change. Still haunted by a number of unsolved kidnappings, Haplin now faces a disturbing new crime that brings all of its unresolved fears to the surface. As the town's mysteries are revealed, many of its prominent citizens' motives come under scrutiny as their own secrets and personalities are peeled back one layer at a time. Lauren German (A Walk to Remember), who plays Henley Boone, Haplin's newest resident, describes the series as a blend between a "supernatural show, thriller, and a murder mystery".
HAPPY TOWN co-stars Geoff Stults (7TH HEAVEN) as Tommy Conroy, Sam Neill (THE TUDORS, Jurassic Park) as Merritt Grieves, Lauren German as Henley Boone, Steven Weber (BROTHERS & SISTERS, WINGS) as John Haplin, Amy Acker (DOLLHOUSE) as Rachel Conroy, Toronto-native Sarah Gadon (BEING ERICA) as Georgia Bravin, Robert Wisdom (THE WIRE) as Roger Hobbs, Jay Paulson (OCTOBER ROAD) as Eli "Root Beer" Rogers and Ben Schnetzer (Ben's Plan) as Andrew Haplin.
