LOS ANGELES (AP) - Tony Award-winning actress Christine Ebersole is joining the cast of a TBS sitcom pilot.

Ebersole will play a hard-drinking woman with a wild life in “Sullivan and Son,” TBS said Friday.

The pilot, which stars comedian Steve Byrne and is set in a working-class Pittsburgh bar, includes actor Vince Vaughn among its producers.

Ebersole, who recently finished filming “The Big Wedding” with Robert De Niro and Katherine Heigl, won Tony Awards for her performances in the musicals “42nd Street” and “Grey Gardens.”
