Annie (Casey Wilson) and Jake (Ken Marino) are a Chicago couple who have been dating for six years. On their return from a romantic trip to Mexico, Annie loses patience with Jake's failure to propose. Unbeknownst to her, he's in the midst of a surprise proposal. Her unloading on him causes him to retract his proposal with the promise of trying again in a few days. She tries to fix things by proposing to him at his office. Unfortunately Jake had told his boss that he was in the hospital with his dying father, not on a trip to Mexico. Needless to say, further complications ensue.

Added DiffLines:

* TheResolutionWillNotBeTelevised: At least in its native US. The show was canceled before even the first season finale aired, and didn't even appear on Hulu. It was only aired on UK TV months after it stopped in the US.


* CelebrityParadox: A Really weird example, at the end of an episode we learn that Dennah used to date a guy has the same name, is played by the same actor and has the exact same personality and catchphrases as Derrick from HappyEndings, since the shows are placed in the same city this might imply they exist in the same 'verse, raising questions about Derrick meeting Annie and noticing the uncanny resemblance to Penny. However, several episodes later Annie claims to have voted on a poll about the best HappyEndings characters, implying they're ''not'' in the same 'verse, and raising questions about how Derrick exists in both reality and fiction.

''Marry Me'' is a sitcom airing on Creator/{{NBC}} starting on October 14, 2014. It's something of a SpiritualSuccessor to ''Series/HappyEndings'', in that it is created by that show's creator David Caspe and stars Creator/CaseyWilson in the female lead, and is set in the same city. Fittingly enough Caspe and Wilson got married in the interim between shows (and Wilson is now pregnant with their child, though only time will tell whether it becomes a case of WrittenInInfirmity or HideYourPregnancy).

[[ShortRunner NBC cancelled the series after one season]]. [[spoiler: But not before Annie and Jake got married.]]



* HaveIMentionedIAmGay: Kay. Other than mentioning that she's gay and a token "boy, I sure do love women" comment every episode, her romantic life is rarely shown. It's not until the eighth episode that any specifics are given and she talks about an ex and apparently hooks up with her, but their interactions past eye-contact occur almost entirely off-screen. It's not until the twelfth episode that she's actually shown interacting with a romantic interest.

* LifeOfTheParty: Annie's cousin Scooby. So much so that she and her dads compete to get him to come to their wedding.
* LimitedSocialCircle: The group mostly just hangs out with itself and occasionally their family. The lack of friends outside the circle is lampshaded in "Friend Me" when Jake's entire wedding party was going to be Gil... just Gil.



* WackyMarriageProposal: Kicks off the plot of the series. Though the initial proposal wasn't wacky until Annie's rant about how Jake hasn't proposed yet, her proposal to Jake was wacky for being a genderswapped surprise proposal in his office.

Added DiffLines:

* UrbanLegendLoveLife: Kay manages to be both types of the trope at various points:
** At first, other than talking of her various conquests and gay-ness, there's no real indication of her getting around that much other than her word.
** In "F Me," she's intentionally sounding like she gets around a lot even though she's been monogamous for a few months to hide the fact she's in a relationship.
