Sullivan & Son (TBS)
A corporate attorney finds new life behind the bar when he takes over his parents' pub in TBS's new original sitcom Sullivan & Son. Popular comedian Steve Byrne plays Steve Sullivan, a successful corporate attorney from New York who brings his girlfriend Ashley home for his father’s 60th birthday. Steve's timing is impeccable, however, as he learns that his Irish-American father, Jack Sullivan, and Korean mother, Ok Cha, are preparing to sell the multi-generational 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 realizes how much he has missed home as he reconnects with his best friend, Owen; gets accosted by his long-suffering, under-appreciated younger sister, Susan; delights in offensive comments from gruff barfly Hank; and gets hit on by tipsy cougar Carol. He even feels a rekindled romantic spark with his former sweetheart, Melanie.
It doesn't take Steve long to realize that where he really belongs is in the old neighborhood and running Sullivan & Son, but Ashley doesn’t have the same view of rural Pittsburgh and his decision to stay means breaking up with her and giving up a Manhattan law career. And so begins Steve's quest for a more meaningful and rewarding life behind the bar.
Sullivan & Son is executive-produced by Vince Vaughn, Peter Billingsley and show-runner Rob Long. Created by Rob Long and Steve Byrne, Sullivan & Son is produced for TBS by Wild West TV, in association with Warner Horizon Television. The series airs on TBS every Thursday at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), beginning July 19, 2012.
