Disney Buys a Happy Little Family


Disney has preemptively picked up the high-concept pitch Happy Little Family from Patrick Doody and Chris Valenziano. Miles Millar and Alfred Gough are producing.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story centers on a family that is turned into a popular set of dolls which must then work together to survive the dangers they encounter in their newfound state and find a way to reverse a wish gone awry.

Doody and Valenziano are writer-producers for televised award shows. They also wrote SCI FI Channel’s horror film Bugs and the video game “Silent Hill: Homecoming” for Konami.
