EXCLUSIVE: Valerie Azlynn, Jodi Long, Vivian Bang and Owen Benjamin have been cast opposite Steve Byrne in TBS’ half-hour comedy pilot Sullivan And Son, starring comedian Byrne and executive produced by Vince Vaughn and Peter Billingsley. Written by Byrne and Cheers alum Rob Long, who serves as executive producer/showrunner, Sullivan And Son is in the vein of the classic NBC comedy and takes place in a popular and legendary neighborhood bar in a working-class neighborhood in Pittsburgh. It centers on Steve Sullivan (Byrne), the son of the bar’s current owner and the grandson of its founder, who surprises his Irish-American father and Korean-American mother (Long) when he decides to leave his job as a successful corporate attorney in New York and return to the neighborhood to take over Sullivan & Son. Azlynn, repped by Innovative and Trademark Talent, will play Melanie, a regular at the bar and the love interest to Steve. Bang will play Steve’s long-suffering, under-appreciated younger sister. Benjamin will play Steve’s childhood friend who has no filter. Warner Horizon and Vaughn’s Wild West Picture Show banner are producing.
