Ken Marino and Casey Wilson in one show!? Ah-mah-zing. Can we set our DVR yet? Marino, he of Party Down and Burning Love fame, will co-star opposite Happy Endings veteran Wilson in NBC's Marry Me pilot, E! News has confirmed.

The pilot hails from Happy Endings co-creator David Caspe. He also just so happens to be Wilson's fiancé. Marry Me follows longtime couple Annie (Wilson) and Jake (Marino) who get engaged and quickly realize it is harder than it looks.

In addition to Marry Me, Marino can next be seen in the upcoming Veronica Mars movie, which is due out in select theaters on March 14. The movie is based on the cult-hit TV show in which Marino played sleazy private eye Vinnie Van Lowe.

Marino and Wilson previously shared the screen in an episode of Happy Endings where Marino played Dave's (Zachary Knighton) therapist.

It's been a busy few months for Wilson who landed several comedy pilots. In early January, Wilson and writing partner June Diane Raphael sold The Mason Twins to NBC. They'll write and executive produce the pilot. Wilson, Raphael and Happy Endings co-creator Jonathan Groff also have DINKS set up at ABC.

NEWS: Happy Endings is back on TV

For all those still craving Happy Endings (let's be real, who isn't?), reruns of the show have landed on VH1. And we'll leave you with this little tidbit, one of Wilson's favorite lines is the brief "whore's bath" (scene above).

"I like the monologue when she is on the cleanse and says she used dryer sheets on her pits and splashed some water on her hush in the bathroom of an Au Bon Pan," Wilson shared on Reddit when asked about her favorite lines.

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
