Melissa McCartney has joined the cast of STXFilms upcoming THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS, which will be directed by Brian Henson.

The comedy is set in the underbelly of Los Angeles where puppets and humans coexist. Two clashing detectives, one human and one puppet, are forced to work together to try and solve who is brutally murdering the former cast of The Happytime Gang, a beloved classic puppet show.

Adam Fogelson, STXFilms Chairman said:

“Melissa McCartney is the reigning queen of comedy and we believe she will make THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS the kind of hysterical, edgy, viral event that audiences today crave. This is the kind of script and material that was made for Melissa’s smart and boundary-pushing sensibilities. Having worked with her years ago on BRIDEMAIDS and IDENTITY THIEF, I could not be more delighted or excited to be working with her again.”

McCartney added:

“When a really good script combined puppet strippers, Los Angeles’ underbelly and comedy, it’s like my fever dream has finally come true.”

Henson said:

“Melissa and Ben’s brand of humor is infectiously unique. I am thrilled to be partnering with them and STXFilms on THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS.”
