Santa Monica, CA (September 16, 2014) MTV is making Tuesday a night for "can't miss TV" when new series "Happyland" debuts on September 30, at 11:00 PM ET/PT following new episodes of hit series "Faking It" and "Awkward."
"Happyland" is a soapy teen dramedy exploring the underbelly of one of the country's most popular theme parks, going behind the scenes to reveal the not so magical reality of the park workers. The series centers on Lucy, the cynical teenage daughter of idealistic park princess mom, Elena. Having grown up in a world of manufactured happiness her whole life, Lucy wants to get out and experience something real. Then Ian, the new park owner's son, arrives and sweeps her off her feet, leaving Lucy wondering if fairy tale endings exist after all. But when a scandalous secret turns her life upside down, she learns Happyland is far from a walk in the park.
"Happyland" stars Bianca Santos ("The Fosters") as 'Lucy', Camille Guaty ("Prison Break") as 'Elena', Shane Harper ("Gods Not Dead") as 'Ian', Katherine McNamara ("Contest") as 'Harper', Cameron Moulene ("Raising Hope") as 'Will', Ryan Rottman ("90210") as 'Theodore' and was created by Ben Epstein.
