David Caspe was a writer and producer whose biggest credit of a young career was the ABC television sitcom "Happy Endings" (2011-2013), which ran for three seasons before being cancelled by its network. A six-part ensemble lifestyle comedy, "Happy Endings" chronicled the lives of a group of friends living in Chicago, set around the break-up of Dave and Alex, the core couple who had brought them all together. Caspe's other main credit was the screenplay of the Adam Sandler-starring film "That's My Boy" (2012), which was not commercially successful and earned him the dubious honour of the 2013 Golden Raspberry award for worst screenplay. Born in Chicago himself, Caspe graduated in 2005 from New York's School of Visual Arts with an MFA in 2005, and initially exhibited as a painter, a photographer and a video artist, before moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career as a screenwriter. He would initially sell his "That's My Boy" script (originally titled "I Hate You, Dad") before creating and becoming executive producer and showrunner on "Happy Endings." Despite attempts to continue the series beyond its third season in May 2013 and in the face of much fan goodwill, it was officially cancelled by producers Sony TV in July of that year, having failed to secure a replacement network. Later that summer, Caspe announced his engagement to the show's breakout star, Casey Wilson. The couple married on May 25, 2014. That same month, NBC announced the pickup of their new sitcom "Marry Me" for the 2014-15 season; created by Caspe, the series starred Wilson as a woman whose engagement to her longtime boyfriend (Ken Marino) encounters multiple obstacles.
