EXCLUSIVE: From bros on Fox’s Enlisted to cuz-bros in a CBS pilot. Parker Young is set as the co-lead opposite his Enlisted co-star 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, Barry (Young), needs a place to stay. Barry is sweet, clueless and naive with an uncanny ability to say/do the wrong thing at the wrong time, even though he means really well. Both Stults and Young are cast in second position to Enlisted, which has been pulled after a low-rated midseason run on Fridays and is not expected to come back. That series revolves around three brothers (Stults, Young, Chris Lowell) in the Army. Young, who also has a recurring role on ABC’s Suburgatory, is repped by Gersh and David Dean Management.
