David Henrie is making the shift from the Disney Channel to his own major network show. How cool is that?

We’re so proud of David Henrie! After spending four seasons playing Selena Gomez‘s older brother on the Disney Channel’s hit show The Wizards of Waverly Place, the 21-year-old actor has booked the lead role in a CBS pilot called The Assistants.

Our sister site, Deadline, first reported the exciting news about David, and his reps confirmed the story to HollywoodLife.com March 18.

The show will revolve around Henrie’s character, Mike Beadle — an aspiring writer who has just arrived in Hollywood from a small town in Pennsylvania and lands a job as an A-list celeb’s assistant.

We wish David the best of luck with his latest endeavor!
