"Sullivan & Son" Season 3 on TBS is a comedy series starring popular comedian Steve Byrne that takes place in a popular and legendary neighborhood bar in a working-class neighborhood in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Filled with locals and regulars, Sullivan & Son is the unofficial "town hall" to the neighborhood.

As the series opens, Steve Sullivan (Byrne) is a successful corporate attorney from New York who brings his girlfriend, Ashley (guest star Brooke Lyons, "2 Broke Girls") for a visit just as his Irish-American father, Jack Sullivan (Dan Lauria, "The Wonder Years"), and Korean mother, Ok Cha (Jodi Long, "Beginners"), are preparing to sell the bar and retire.

Upon 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.

Season 3

In season three, Kunal Nayyar will return as Neal, the ultimate ladies man who tried to steal a few hearts during the bar's Ladies Night at the bar last season. Ken Jeong will return as Jason, Steve's brother-in-law whose workaholic ways were putting strain on his marriage ... that is until he let loose at the bar. Billy Gardell will return for the third consecutive season as Lyle Winkler, a quirky comic-book collector and youth hockey coach who has constant run-ins with Steve and the bar regulars.

"Sullivan & Son" is executive-produced by Vince Vaughn ("The Break-Up"), Peter Billingsley ("Iron Man") and showrunner Rob Long ("Cheers"). Byrne also serves as producer on the series, which comes to TBS from Vaughn's Wild West Picture Show Productions, in association with Warner Horizon Television. The pilot was co-written by Byrne and Long, with Ted Wass ("Rules of Engagement") directing.
