New Sitcom, The Bill Engvall Show, Premieres on TBS on Tuesday, July 17

The Bill Engvall Show

The Bill Engvall Show premieres Tuesday, July 17, at 9/8c on TBS!

The Bill Engvall Show is written and created by Engvall and Michael Leeson (The War of the Roses), who also serve as executive producers with J.P. Williams (Blue Collar TV). The series is produced by TBS with Leeson’s Welladay, Inc. and Williams’ Parallel Entertainment. The pilot was directed by James Widdoes (Two and a Half Men).

Set in a Denver suburb, The Bill Engvall Show stars Engvall as Bill Pearson, a family counselor whose own family could maybe use a little dose of counseling. He works with dysfunctional families all day and comes home to what he sees as perfection, but in reality they are somewhat absurd, unpredictable and just as mixed up as any other family.

Nancy Travis plays his witty and loving wife, Susan, who tries to keep the family in line. Bill and Susan keep busy raising their teenage daughter, Lauren, and sons Trent, a sports and video game enthusiast, and Bryan, a musically talented neat freak with a pet snake. The kids love their parents but also know how to manipulate them. Also adding to the family dynamic is Bill’s mother, an outrageous senior with the energy of a teenager. Comedic actors Tim Meadows and Steve Hytner round out the cast as Will’s closest friends.

Cast:

Bill Engvall as Bill Pearson, Nancy Travis as Susan Pearson, Tim Meadows as Paul DuFrayne, Steve Hytner as Bob Spoonerman, Jennifer Lawrence as Lauren Pearson, Graham Patrick Martin as Trent Pearson, Skyler Gisondo as Bryan Pearson
