Produced by CBS Studios in association with the Kings’ King Size Productions and iHeartMedia, Happy Face is adapted from the podcast of the same name and the book Shattered Silence, written by Melissa Jesperson-Moore and M Bridget Cook.

The series is Jesperson-Moore’s real-life story about when, at the age of 15, she learned her beloved father was a prolific serial killer dubbed Happy Face, prompting her to change her identity as an adult.

The Kings, Jennifer Cacicio (Your Honor), King Size Productions’ Liz Glotzer, Jesperson-Moore and iHeartMedia’s Bob Pittman and Conal Byrne serve as executive producers on Happy Face.

Sales of the show are being handled by ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group.
