Fusion Announces ‘Happy Ending with Nando Vila’

10-Episodes of the Political Sketch Comedy Ordered

Fusion will premiere a new political sketch comedy series, “Happy Ending with Nando Vila,” on Thursday, February 8 at 9 p.m. Described as an “explainer series,” 10-part “Happy Ending with Nando Vila” will take a step back and tries to figure out what’s going on behind the headlines, spotlighting the absurdity of the world in silly and absurd ways.

“America is looking for a happy ending to the mess we are in,” said Nando Vila. “We are taking a fun, entertaining and informative look at the different building blocks of our political system, while proposing solutions in the hopes of making progress—because we’d like to end up, you know, happy.”

In the premiere episode “Killed by Capital,” Nando sets out on a film noir detective hunt to figure out what capitalism is, and how it controls our lives. Future episodes will tackle the gig economy, health care, housing, imperialism, and more.

“Happy Ending with Nando Vila” is executive produced by Nando Vila along with Chris Kasick (“Uncle Nick” and “Attack of the Show”).
