Damon Wayans is looking to return to the small screen, landing the lead role in a new, untitled CBS pilot.
The show is set at a sports radio station, with Damon Wayans starring as radio host Nick Herd. The character is based on the prolific ESPN sports personality Colin Cowherd, who will also serve as a producer on the pilot. Danny Comden has signed onto play the producer of Herd's radio program.
Grounded for Life creators Bill Martin and Mike Schiff wrote the pilot script and will executive produce alongside Kim Tannenbaum and Eric Tannenbaum (Running Wilde).
Andy Cadiff will direct the pilot episode. It isn't clear yet when the pilot will go into production.
