News   Rifkin and Baitz Team Again, This Time on Television
 
Playwright Jon Robin Baitz and actor Ron Rifkin, who have teamed on several plays Off-Broadway, will join forces again on the new television series "Brothers and Sisters."

The new ABC series will be written by Baitz and star Rifkin as Uncle Sol, the brother of the show's patriarch figure. It will be executive produced and directed by Ken Olin, the former "thirtysomething" actor who is now a busy director in television. Olin directed several episodes of "Alias," the espionage series than turned Rifkin into a small screen star. He played the evil underworld lord Arvin Sloane on the series, which concludes later this season. Baitz, who has spent the bulk of his writing career in the theatre, penned one episode for the program.

Baitz is the author of the plays The Substance of Fire, Three Hotels and The Paris Letter. Rifkin starred in all three.
