andreaandersruppEXCLUSIVE: That ’70s Show alumna Debra Jo Rupp and Andrea Anders have joined Geoff Stults in CBS’ multi-camera odd couple comedy pilot Cuz-Bros, from writers David Caspe and Erik Sommers, Sony TV, CBS Studios and Fanfare. It centers on Nick (Stults), a successful, suave ladies man working as a sportscaster for a local Los Angeles TV station whose perfect life gets turned upside down when his mess of a cousin needs a place to stay. Rupp plays Merle, Nick’s sweet, no-nonsense, widowed mother who lives nearby. Anders plays Stacey, the smart, tough lead anchor of the local news in L.A. where Nick does the sports. Rupp, repped by Stone Manners Salners and Wright Entertainment, has been starring in the one-woman show Becoming Dr. Ruth the past few years.
