Variety, the inside Hollywood trade magazine is reporting that D.L. Hughley has landed the lead role in a new CBS comedy pilot called 'Brothered Up." Hughley hinted on his radio show last week that he cancelled a meeting because of grieving the death of his friend Charlie Murphy. He later revealed that despite missing the meeting, he was hired.

Executive producer of the show and former local Dallas morning radio personality, Skip Cheatham could do more fill-in work for Hughley as well. No word yet from Reach Media on the future of the show if the pilot gets picked up by CBS. The radio show, which has over 40 affiliates across the country, is heard in New York City, Cleveland, Baltimore, Detroit, Kansas City, and New Orleans.
