Even though her new show One Big Happy has yet to premiere, Ellen DeGeneres and her production company, A Very Good Production, are already working on another half-hour sitcom.

Happy Time will star Idina Menzel, 43, as a woman “in the public eye who’s ready to stop pretending she’s so damned happy all the time.”

Menzel got her start on Broadway in the original production of Rent and then made an indelible mark on the theatre world by starring in the original production of Wicked on Broadway opposite country music star and actress Kristin Chenoweth. She is currently performing in the musical If/Then at the Richard Rodgers Theatre.

The multitalented performer will be reunited with the ruby slippers empire because Happy Time will be written and executive produced by Randi Barnes, the scribe behind Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return.

Menzel won a Tony for her voice in the Disney animated movie Frozen, sang the national anthem at the Super Bowl and recently appeared on Glee.

One Big Happy, a story about a man who gets his lesbian best friend pregnant and falls in love with another woman, premieres on NBC March 17.
