CBS has been developing a comedy pilot based on ESPN radio personality (and SportsNation host) Colin Cowherd do debut in the fall. Damon Wayans had already been cast in the role inspired by Cowherd, and now Eliza Dushku is on board to act as a co-host within the show. Based on her tweet earlier today it looks like she’ll be acting as the Michele Beadle (Cowherd’s SportsNation co-host) of the yet to be named series.

Deadline lays out the concept: “Nick (Wayans), an egotistical sports-radio host with a quick wit and cocky likability who is adored by his fans. Dushku will play Nick’s radio cohort Casey, a fun, quick-witted gal who is socially oblivious and pathologically blunt.”
