The legendary Richard Drefyuss will star in “Your Family Or Mine”, a TBS comedy from Greg Malins, Sony Pictures TV and Fanfare.

The “Jaws” and “Stakeout” star will co-star with fellow film bet JoBeth Williams (“Poltergeist”) on the show.

Deadline says :

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.

In recent years, Dreyfuss guest-starred on “Weeds” and “Parenthood”.
