Sitcom based on Harry Styles’ early years with One Direction faces uncertain future

Sign of the times...

A sitcom based on Harry Styles‘ early days with One Direction reportedly faces an uncertain future after just two months.

Happy Together debuted in October and followed the true story of how Styles began secretly living with One Direction’s video director Ben Winston (portrayed by Damon Wayans) and his wife Meredith (played by Amber Stevens West) in London for nearly two years when One Direction shot to global fame.

The unlikely scenario is given a Stateside twist and takes place in a US suburban home where musician Cooper James (Felix Mallard) moves in with a couple after breaking up with Sierra (played by Peyton List).


However, it’s now been confirmed that the show faces uncertainty over a second season – with sources claiming that the failure is largely down to Styles’ reluctance to be directly involved in the project.

“CBS held a major announcement event last week and Happy Together wasn’t included in the line-up for early next year – which was a real shock. They’ve confirmed that as yet they haven’t commissioned any new episodes beyond the initial 13 part first run.It’s all looking very up in the air,” a source told The Sun.

Describing the show in August, Ben Winston said: “The truth of it is Harry became a huge part of our family.

“We never wanted him to move out. He would prefer to live in this sort of modern suburban family unit rather than living on his own in a mansion. And I think everybody can relate to that, regardless of how famous you are.”


Meanwhile, Styles was recently revealed to be among the top earning global celebrities under the age of 30.
