CLEVELAND, Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The hilarious new comedy "The Yank", starring Colm Meaney, Fred Willard, Kevin Farley and introducing Sean Lackey, is set to make its debut at American Film Market 2012, which kicks off October 31 at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel, in Santa Monica, CA.

Shot on location in Cleveland, Dublin and County Clare, Ireland, "The Yank" tells the story of Tom Murphy, a middle-aged Cleveland bachelor.  For Tom, "the perfect woman" is beautiful, hard-working, family-oriented – and (like his parents) 100% Irish.  So when his best friend, Marty, decides to get married in Ireland, Tom's family and friends send him off on a side splitting epic adventure. Tom does not know it yet, but he's about to come face to face with the real Ireland!

Tom's plan to find his dreams takes him on a journey of discovery to a land that defies his original expectations. He discovers that the grass isn't always greener, even in Ireland.  With the help of family he's met for the first time, he's discovering what it is to be Irish in 2013....the year of THE GATHERING!!!!
