It’s a very good day for fans of TBS’ original programming slate.
“‘Sullivan & Son’ and ‘Men at Work’ have really caught on with TBS’ core viewers, and ‘Deal With It’ has burst out of the gate as one of the summer’s most popular new cable series,” Michael Wright, TBS’ president and head of programming, says. “We are very excited to be expanding our relationship with the producers, cast members and production teams on these three series.”
The network ordered 13 episodes of “Sullivan & Son,” which stars Steve Byrne as a successful attorney who returns home to run the family bar,” to launch in summer 2014. Currently airings on Thursdays, Season 2 wraps up on Aug. 22.
“Men at Work” scored an order of 10 episodes for Season 3, slated to launch in early 2014, while the 10-episode Season 2 order of “Deal With It” will launch sometime in 2014, though not likely as early.
TBS will continue to debut new series throughout the remainder of 2013, beginning with the Thursday, Oct. 22 premiere of “Trust Me, I’m a Game Show Host,” hosted by D.L. Hughley and Michael Ian Black. Beginning Oct. 28, the network will expand its late-night lineup with “The Pete Holmes Show,” which will follow “Conan” Monday-Thursday at midnight.
