Looks like TBS is continuing to take its tagline, “Very funny,” very seriously. After nabbing Conan O’Brien last year and continuing to develop Tyler Perry’s many comedy projects, the cable network has ordered a new pilot from Vince Vaughn’s production company. Sullivan and Son will star stand-up comedian Steve Byrne as a former New York attorney who bails on the corporate life to take over a bar in Pittsburgh in hopes of finding a more rewarding life, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

It’s certainly a great fit for Byrne, considering that the comedian hails from Pittsburgh – he’ll undoubtedly be drawing on his personal experience and knowledge for the project, especially since he’s also slated to write it up. And you can learn more about Byrne if you check out our interview with the man from last year.
