In 2006, Caspe moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in screenwriting. In 2010, his screenplay for I Hate You, Dad (later re-titled That's My Boy) was picked up by Sony and Happy Madison productions. The film starred Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg, and was released on June 15, 2012. Caspe's script for the upcoming comedy Ladies Night starring Charlize Theron is set to began filming in early 2014, with Fred Savage attached to direct.
Caspe's ABC series Happy Endings ran for three seasons, ending its run on May 3, 2013. As well as creating the series, he was also the executive producer and co-showrunner. Since Happy Endings' cancellation, he now has several shows in development under Sony TV for the 2014 pilot season, such as Marry Me for NBC to be directed by Seth Gordon, Roommates for CBS, which he's co-writing with Erik Sommers, and comedy-drama Ball Street for Showtime.
