Character Bio

Merc Lapidus photo
Merc is the president of the American television network that buys Lyman's Boys. He is a dangerous, dangerous infant. He's willful and mercurial and has the attention span of a gnat. He greets everyone he meets - friends and strangers alike - with a hug. But he has the eyes of a killer. It is quickly revealed that Merc has never even seen Lyman's Boys (according to Carol, his underling, "He's not a big TV watcher."), and all of his promises to "not change a thing" prove to be horrifyingly empty to Sean and Beverly.
