Damon Wayans just signed one of the biggest television deals for this upcoming pilot season.
The Wayans brother will star in the multicamera comedy, from veteran writer-producers Bill Martin and Mike Schiff. The show is inspired by ESPN personality Colin Cowherd’s outspoken sports talk show.
It centers on Nick (Wayans), an egotistical sports radio host with a quick wit and cocky likability who is adored by his fans. When he’s on the air, Nick says he is “right about everything.” But the moment he steps out of the booth, “I’m just a schmuck trying to keep three women from freaking out on me.”
Wayans is said to be earning top-dollar for this gig.
