Now he's moving back to his hometown of Boise, Idaho, where his brother, Stewart (Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award nominee Fred Savage, "The Wonder Years"), is a real-life attorney who is poised to take over the family law firm. It doesn't take long for Dean to start injecting his TV drama into every aspect of Stewart's life, both in the courtroom and at home, impacting Stewart's wife - and Dean's high school sweetheart - Debbie (Mary Elizabeth Ellis, New Girl, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"); their two kids, 15-year-old Lizzie (Hana Hayes, "Bucket and Skinner's Epic Adventures") and 13-year-old Ethan (Connor Kalopsis, "Days Of Our Lives"); and Dean and Stewart's father, the law firm's head, Dean Sr. (William Devane, "24: Live Another Day").
