From Playbill: CBS has announced its new primetime lineup for the 2012-13 season. The new comedy “Partners,” starring Ugly Betty/How to Succeed‘s Michael Urie and David Krumholtz (Conversations with My Father), will air Monday nights at 8:30 PM ET.
Based on the lives of creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick,
“Partners,” according to CBS, is “about two life-long best friends and
business partners whose ‘bromance’ is tested when one of them is engaged
to be married. Joe (Krumholtz) is an accomplished architect who leads
with his head and not his heart, especially in his love life. That’s in
stark contrast to his gay co-worker, Louis (Urie), who is spontaneous,
emotional and prone to exaggeration. Both have found joy in their love
lives: Joe is newly engaged to Ali (Sophia Bush), a beautiful and
sophisticated jewelry designer, while Louis is dating Wyatt (Brandon
Routh), a vegan nurse who Louis insists is just a promotion away from
becoming a doctor. As news of Joe’s engagement settles, time will tell
if their business and personal bond can adapt to the addition of two
other important relationships.” James Burrows directed the pilot.
