Pilot News: Eliza Dushku Teams with Damon Wayans on CBS Sports Comedy

Dollhouse knockout Eliza Dushku is getting imprinted with a new personality: sitcom star.

The actress has been cast alongside Damon Wayans in CBS’ untitled sports radio-themed comedy pilot.

Inspired by ESPN personality Colin Cowherd’s outspoken sports talk show The Herd, the project centers on a radio host (Wayans) with a quick wit and cocky likability who is adored by his fans. Dushku will play his on-air sidekick Casey.

In a celebratory post on her Facebook page, Dushku confirmed the news and referred to Wayans as “her comic idol.”
