TBS Renews Hit Series "Sullivan & Son," "Men at Work" and "Deal With It"

TBS has ordered third seasons of its hit original sitcoms Sullivan & Son, starring popular comedian Steve Byrne, and Men at Work, starring Danny Masterson, Michael Cassidy, Adam Busch, Meredith Hagner and James Lesure. TBS has also ordered a second season of the hit series Deal With It, from Howie Mandel's Alevy Productions.

"Sullivan & Son and Men At Work have really caught on with TBS's core viewers, and Deal With It has burst out of the gate as one of the summer's most popular new cable series," said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). "We are very excited to be expanding our relationship with the producers, cast members and production teams on these three series."

TBS has ordered 13 episodes of Sullivan & Son, which airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. (ET/PT) and is set to wrap up its second season Aug. 22. Sullivan & Son is executive-produced by Vince Vaughn (Wedding Crashers), Peter Billingsley (Iron Man) and showrunner Rob Long (Cheers). The series is averaging 2.4 million viewers in Live + 7 delivery this summer, including 1.3 million adults 18-49. Sullivan & Son is produced for TBS by Wild West Picture Show Productions, in association with Warner Horizon Television. Season three of Sullivan & Son is slated to launch in summer 2014.

TBS has also ordered 10 episodes for the third season of its popular workplace sitcom Men at Work. This past spring, the second season of the series averaged 1.9 million viewers and 1.2 million adults 18-49. Men at Work comes to TBS from Sony Pictures Television and Fanfare. The multi-camera comedy is executive-produced by Breckin Meyer (Road Trip, Franklin & Bash), along with Fanfare's Jamie Tarses (Happy Endings, TNT's Franklin & Bash, TBS's My Boys) and Julia Franz (Scrubs). The third season of Men at Work is slated to launch in early 2014.

TBS has renewed Deal With It with a 10-episode order for season two.

Deal With It is based on a successful format created by Keshet Broadcasting and United Studios. The second season is slated to launch in 2014.

TBS's renewals come as the network prepares to launch three new series during the second half of 2013. Beginning Tuesday, Oct. 22, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), D.L. Hughley and Michael Ian Black will headline the new game show Trust Me, I'm a Game Show Host.

McGinley (Scrubs). Ground Floor is set to premiere Thursday, Nov. 14, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).

About Sullivan & Son

Created by Rob Long and Steve Byrne, Sullivan & Son stars Byrne as Steve Sullivan, a successful corporate attorney who comes home to Pittsburgh and buys the family bar, Sullivan & Son. Freed from his corporate life, Steve spends his days hanging out with his best friends, the gullible Owen (Owen Benjamin), cougar-chasing Ahmed (Ahmed Ahmed) and hard-nosed Roy (Roy Wood, Jr.); weighing oft-opposing counsel from his lovable Irish-American father, Jack Sullivan (Dan Lauria), and stern Korean mother, Ok Cha (Jodi Long); getting accosted by his long-suffering, under-appreciated younger sister, Susan (Vivian Bang); delighting in offensive comments from gruff barfly Hank (Brian Doyle-Murray); and keeping an eye on the bar's resident siren, Carol (Christine Ebersole), who hits on just about every man who comes in the door. Steve has even rekindled a few romantic sparks with his former flame, paramedic Melanie (Valerie Azlynn).

About Men at Work

Created by Breckin Meyer, Men at Work centers on four buddies who work together at a magazine. Danny Masterson plays Milo, whose friends are determined to help him find success in the dating game. James Lesure is Gibbs, a photographer and successful ladies man. Michael Cassidy plays Tyler, a features writer who brings a dose of style and sophistication to the group. And Adam Busch is Neal, a somewhat nerdy ad salesman whose girlfriend, Amy (Meredith Hagner), also happens to be the daughter of magazine's owner (recurring guest star J.K. Simmons).

About Deal With It

In TBS's Deal With It, unsuspecting members of the public are secretly recruited to pull a prank on their unwitting companions with absolutely no time to prepare.

With the opportunity to prank their way to cash and prizes, these everyday people are shown no mercy as they are tasked with pulling off some of the most ridiculous behavior ever caught on hidden camera. Adding to the fun, the pranks on Deal With It are fed to the contestants by special celebrity guests.
