It hasn’t been looking great for FOX’s new brother comedy “Enlisted” and now some casting news adds fuel to the cancellation fire.
Deadline reports that “Enlisted” co-stars Parker Young and Geoff Stults have been cast as cousins in CBS pilot “Cuz-Bros,” which is about a Los Angeles ladies’ man named Nick (Stults) who takes his cousin Barry (Young) in when Barry needs a place to crash for a while.
The roles are in second position to “Enlisted,” which means they will remain with the FOX sitcom should it be renewed, but ratings have never been great, averaging just over 2 million viewers per episode. “Enlisted” co-star Angelique Cabral has also been cast in a pilot, NBC’s “Two to Go.”
“Enlisted” airs Friday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
