Tony Winner Christine Ebersole Previews Her Role as a 'Boozy Cougar' on the TBS Sitcom Sullivan & Son
Christine Ebersole in 'Sullivan & Son'

The new sitcom Sullivan & Son premieres on July 19 on the TBS network with a cast that includes theater vets Dan Lauria, Jodi Long and Tony winner Christine Ebersole. Set in a Pittsburgh bar, the show centers on a New York businessman (Steve Byrne) who considers giving up his corporate life to take over the family business when his dad (Lauria) decides to retire. In a role that’s a far cry from her award-winning performance as Little Edie Beale in Grey Gardens, Ebersole plays Carol, a flirtatious barfly the actress laughingly describes as “kind of a boozy cougar.” Click below to hear more about Sullivan & Son from Ebersole and her on-screen son, played by comedian Owen Benjamin.
