I’ve learned that actor Steve Byrne, star of TBS’ comedy series Sullivan & Son, has suffered an injury to his face. That has led to a six-week shutdown of the show, which had been in production on its second season.
TBS and producer Warner Horizon could not be reached for comment, but according to sources, Byrne had his jaw broken “by an irate cabbie” and will have it wired shut for six weeks.
Production on Sullivan & Son will resume in June, with the show still expected to make the the delivery date for a summer premiere.
