ABC Provides a First Look at New Series Happy Town

Happy Town (ABC)

ABC Television has released a first look at their upcoming series Happy Town. The network is billing it as a Twin Peaks-like mystery series, but from this preview we think it looks more like Harper's Island set in Minnesota.

For the past seven years Haplin, Minnesota's lived up to its nickname, Happy Town. Even the air is sweet with the smell of bread from the industrial bakery. Unfortunately, everything is about to change.

Seven years ago, an unknown psycho, nicknamed "The Magic Man", kidnapped seven children before Sheriff Griffin Conroy chased him away. But the discovery of a local's gruesome murder and the disappearance of a new child have everyone whispering the Magic Man is back. Now, Mayor Haplin has ordered Deputy Tommy Conroy to replace his father as Sheriff -- whether he wants the job, or not. Tommy knows better than to cross the town royalty, whose bakery employs half the town, including his wife. As Tommy begins investigating, his friends and neighbors become suspects and the quiet small town life he's always cherished begins to sour. But Tommy's not the only one investigating Haplin. A mysterious young woman has just arrived in town, and she's quietly searching for answers about her family's history with the residents of Happy Town.

According to ABC's announced schedule for the 2009 / 2010 television season, Happy Town is considered as a mid-season replacement. Watch a network-provided preview of the series below:
