Steven Weber is in negotiations to play a lead on ABC’s midseason series “Happy Town,” says The Hollywood Reporter.
Additionally, Ben Schnetzer has landed a lead role on the ABC Studios-produced drama.
“Happy Town” is a mystery set in a small town rattled by the return of a serial kidnapper, known as the Magic Man.
Weber would play John Haplin, whose family practically runs the city. He is obsessive and filled with agony over the disappearance of his daughter, kidnapped years ago by the Magic Man.
Schnetzer will play Haplin’s son, a wealthy teenager entangled in a Romeo & Juliet-style romance.
