‘Grace’ duo land pilot

Kohan, Mutchnick will serve as creator-exec producers

“Will & Grace” creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick have landed a put pilot at CBS that hits close to home for the writing partners.

The untitled comedy revolves around a friendship between two men — one gay, one straight. Show mirrors the longtime pals in real life: Mutchnick is openly gay, while Kohan is straight. (“Will & Grace” obviously also paired a gay character with a straight character, but with a man and a woman.)

Warner Bros. TV, where Kohan and Mutchnick are based, is behind the show. The duo will serve as creator-exec producers.

Kohan and Mutchnick most recently created the short-lived NBC laffer “Four Kings,” as well as the WB sitcom “Twins.”

At the Eye, the duo last exec produced “The Stones,” a midseason show that briefly aired during the 2003-04 season.

“Will & Grace” aired for eight seasons on NBC. Kohan and Mutchnick also created NBC’s “Good Morning, Miami” and “Boston Common.” Their other credits include writing on “Dream On” and “The Single Guy.”
