CUZ-BROS (CBS/CTS/Sony; W: David Caspe & Erik Sommers; D: Pamela Fryman) - Parker Young is set to star opposite fellow "Enlisted" alum Geoff Stults in the comedy pilot, about Nick (Geoff Stults), a successful, suave ladies' man whose perfect life gets turned upside down when his mess of a cousin needs a place to stay. He'll play said cousin, Barry, who 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's roles are in second position to the FOX comedy. Debra Jo Rupp and Andrea Anders also star. (Deadline.com)
