Richard Dreyfuss To Co-Star In TBS Comedy Pilot 'Your Family Or Mine'
Beverly Hills, California April 04, 2014 Entertainment News(PRLEAP.COM) April 4, 2014 - Beverly Hills, CA — Richard Dreyfuss has joined the TBS comedy pilot Your Family Or Mine, from Greg Malins, Sony Pictures TV and Fanfare. Based on an Israeli format, the show centers on Oliver and Kelli, who are living proof of the adage "When you marry someone, you don't just marry them, you marry their whole family."
It is a family comedy with an unusual structure - each episode focuses on a different side of the family: one week featuring the couple dealing with Kelli's family, the next spent with Oliver's. Dreyfuss, repped by APA and The Schiff Co., will play Ricky, Oliver's father, opposite JoBeth Williams' Louis. This marks the first series-regular role for Oscar-winner Dreyfuss since his starring turn on the 2001 CBS drama The Education Of Max Bickford. Over the past decade he's done arcs on Showtime's Weeds and NBC's Parenthood. He most recently wrapped Darren Aronofsky and Joel Viertel's feature Zipper and was seen in Paranoia.
With headquarters in Beverly Hills, New York and Nashville, APA (Agency for the Performing Arts) is the fourth largest diversified talent agency in Los Angeles. Founded in 1962, the agency now represents artists, performers and brands across all media platforms, with divisions that include Talent, Feature and Television Literary, Comedy, Concerts, Alternative & International Television, Branded Lifestyle, Entertainment Marketing & Brand Integration, and Physical Production.
