TBS's New Original Sitcom "Sullivan & Son" Starts Production

The bar is now open. Production started this week in Los Angeles on TBS's new original sitcom Sullivan & Son, starring popular comedian Steve Byrne. Set in a popular pub in a working-class Pittsburgh neighborhood, Sullivan & Son is executive-produced by Vince Vaughn (The Break-Up), Peter Billingsley (Iron Man) and show-runner Rob Long (Cheers). The series is slated to premiere on TBS Thursday, July 19, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).

In Sullivan & Son, Byrne plays Steve Sullivan, a successful corporate attorney from New York who brings his girlfriend, Ashley (guest star Brooke Lyons - 2 Broke Girls), home to meet his parents. Steve's timing is impeccable, however, since his Irish-American father, Jack Sullivan (Dan Lauria - The Wonder Years), and Korean mother, Ok Cha (Jodi Long - Beginners), are preparing to sell the family business, a bar known as Sullivan & Son.

Filled with locals and regulars, Sullivan & Son is the unofficial "town hall" for the neighborhood. Within moments of his arrival, Steve reconnects with his best friend, Owen (Owen Benjamin - The House Bunny); gets accosted by his long-suffering, under-appreciated younger sister, Susan (Vivian Bang - Yes Man); endures offensive comments from gruff barfly Hank (Brian Doyle Murray - Groundhog Day, Saturday Night Live); and gets hit on by tipsy cougar Carol (Christine Ebersole - Royal Pains, Amadeus). He even feels a rekindled romantic spark with his former sweetheart, Melanie (Valerie Azlynn - Tropic Thunder).

It doesn't take Steve long to realize that what he really wants out of life is to return to the old neighborhood and take over Sullivan & Son, even if it means giving up a lavish Manhattan lifestyle with the gorgeous Ashley. And so begins Steve's quest for a more meaningful and rewarding life behind the bar.

Sullivan & Son is produced for TBS by Wild West Picture Show Productions, in association with Warner Horizon Television.

Sullivan & Son will mark TBS's second original sitcom this summer. In May, TBS will launch the buddy comedy Men at Work, starring Danny Masterson (That '70s Show, Yes Man), Michael Cassidy (The O.C), Adam Busch (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and James Lesure (Las Vegas). Created by Breckin Meyer (Road Trip, TNT's Franklin & Bash), Men at Work will launch with back-to-back episodes at 10 and 10:30 p.m. on May 24. It will then air in its regular 10 p.m. timeslot beginning May 31.
