Deadline reports that Chris Meloni has landed the leading role in a new Syfy drama called Happy!. 

The show is based on a graphic novel written by Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson about a down-and-out police detective turned hit-man whose life is changed by a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue-winged horse. Yes you read that correctly, a tiny blue horse. Meloni will play Nick Sax the detective in question.

Meloni currently stars on WGN’s Underground.
