As it continues to figure out its new programming slate, NBC has cast Brandon Mychal Smith as the lead in its comedy pilot Like Family.
The show centers on centers on Aubrey and Artie (Smith) who formed the tightest of sibling-like bonds growing up together in foster care, but are discovering that such closeness makes adulthood even more complicated.
Smith’s Artie seems tough, but it’s all surface. His soft spot is Aubrey and he is very protective of his “sister.” Terrified of being poor again, he always has a bunch of jobs going. Unlike Aubrey, he’s cautious about taking risks in life or in love. That’s where Aubrey steps in. Frequently.
Smith is most well-known for his recurring role as Sam in FXX’s You’re the Worst. He is also the voice of Michelangelo in Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and appeared in Get On Up as Little Richard.
