Sasso — who earlier this year starred in the big-screen Three Stooges reboot, and boasts an extensive list of TV credits that includes MADtv, $h*! My Dad Says, How I Met Your Mother and Less Than Perfect — will guest star as an air traffic controller suing his coworker, Hank (Brian Doyle-Murray), for being racist. As such, Steve is forced to put his lawyer cap back on to represent Hank.

    • There have been an awful lot of unsuccessful shows and pilots about a high-roller professional giving up their big city career to move back to their hometown and help/take over their family’s business-which are usually some kind of restaurant or bar. There’s always a former sweetheart, plus irascible/kooky/handicapped family members, old friends, old rivals, etc.
