Netflix’s dark comedy reel will get a new addition soon. After the overwhelming success of its recent sadistic farces like Dead To Me and After Life, Netflix is ready to roll out a new comedy ‘Merry Happy Whatever‘ starring Dennis Quaid very soon. While the show has already created a lot of noise with its star-studded cast and crew, its latest board addition will give a further boost to the hype around it. One Day At A Time showrunner Gloria Calderon Kellett has jumped on the Merry Happy Whatever bandwagon as a director. The acclaimed executive will helm an episode for the upcoming series. Her association with the show will mark her second outing with Netflix since the gruesome cancellation of her iconic sitcom. Merry Happy Whatever Dennis Quaid Netflix

Gloria hasn’t revealed much about her directional outing. But, via her Instagram post, Calderon confirmed that she has stepped in to direct one of the eight episodes of the show. Kellett will direct an episode written by Gracie Glassmeyer, who has previously written for shows including 9JKL, Happy Together, and No Tomorrow among others. While Gloria did not mention when the particular episode- or even the show- would air, she did mention that the show will be out this winter. Merry Happy Whatever Netflix Release Date
Show’s Cast, Crew, Release Date, and Plot
The Netflix sitcom will follow an anthology format where each season will focus on a different holiday. The Kapital Entertainment and TrillTV project has recruited a veteran crew to helm the project. Everybody Loves Raymond creator Tucker Cawley will serve as the show-runner while multi-camera expert Pam Fryman will oversee the pilot. Dennis Quaid will topline the project as Don Quinn, alongside serving as one of the show’s executive producers.
As Kellett remarked, Merry Happy Whatever on Netflix involves the same people who were also behind TV’s most iconic sitcoms, “How I Met Your Mother“, and “One Day At A Time“. And for this reason, we can have our fingers crossed for a highly watchable experience.
Fabulous week directing #MerryHappyWhatever coming this winter. It’s largely the same crew as #HowIMetYourMother & @OneDayAtATime which is the best! Hollywood can be a small lovely place. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/NyNCDxoH8t
