In its ever growing enthusiasm to develop original comedy content, FX has just inked a script deal with veteran comedian D.L. Hughley. “We’re doing a show on FX about me having a radio show,” Hughley tells Laughspin, adding the deal was just finalized this week. And if you think the premise sounds familiar, it might be because you heard the news of Hughley’s new syndicated radio show happening in real life. The D.L. Hughley Show — co-hosted by Jasmine Sanders and Steve Wilson — will soft launch on Monday in five cities and will be added to 45 markets shortly after. It will air 3 – 7 pm ET every day. In addition to the new radio gig, Hughley is working on a feature-length for-theaters version of The Endangered List, the mockumentary that aired on Comedy Central last year and was recently honored with a Peabody award. FX’s new sister channel FXX, premiering Sept. 2, had previously announced it would air re-runs of the comedian’s former show The Hughleys.
