Vince Vaughn and his producing partner Peter Billingsley (yes, the kid in A Christmas Story) are executive producing Sullivan and Son, a half hour comedy set up at TBS. The network has ordered a pilot episode written by and starring Steve Byrne. Executive producer/showrunner Rob Long co-wrote the pilot which is set to start shooting later this year.
According to TBS, “Sullivan and Son takes place in a popular and legendary neighborhood bar in a working-class neighborhood in Pittsburgh, Penn. Filled with locals and regulars, Sullivan & Son is the unofficial ‘town hall’ to the neighborhood.
Steve Sullivan (Byrne) is the son of the current owner of the bar and the grandson of its founder. His Irish-American father and his Korean-American mother never expected their son to leave his job as a successful corporate attorney in New York and return to the old neighborhood to take over Sullivan & Son. But that’s just what he’s done. And so begins Steve’s quest for a more meaningful and rewarding life behind the bar.”
