Comedian/actor D.L. Hughley has been cast to co-lead in the CBS multi-camera comedy pilot Brothered Up.
Hughley will star opposite of Adhir Kalyan as an emotionally guarded African-American cop who partners with an emotionally available Pakistani cop named Farooq (Kalyan). The two are forced to find a way to connect as they patrol a Detroit neighborhood.
Hughley previously headlined the comedy series The Hughleys, which ran for four seasons on ABC and UPN. Malco has an extensive body of work doing drama and single-camera comedy series. The pilot’s taping is slated to take place tomorrow.
Brothered up was written and executive produced by Mark Gross.
