FX Sets August Premiere Date for Martin Lawrence, Kelsey Grammer Comedy

FX’s newest 10/90 comedy, “Partners,” starring Martin Lawrence and Kelsey Grammer, has set its series premiere date for Monday, August 4.

The series follows Grammer and Lawrence as two Chicago lawyers from very different backgrounds who unexpectedly meet in court as they each face a personal crisis.

Other series regulars include Telma Hopkins, Rory O’Malley, McKaley Miller, Edi Patterson and Danièle Watts.

Showrunners Bob Boyett and Robert Horn are exec producing along with Lawrence, Grammer, Brian Sher, Stella Bulochnikov, Michael Green and Sam Maydew.

The series is produced by Lionsgate Television in association with Grammnet NH Productions and You Go Boy Productions. It is distributed by Debmar-Mercury.

As part of the 10/90 model FX initially utilized for “Anger Management,” the network has ordered 10 episodes of “Partners” and if the series meets designated ratings thresholds over its opening 10-episode run, the network will order an additional 90 episodes.

FX will air two back-to-back episodes of the show from 9-10 p.m. for five consecutive weeks, preceding new episodes of Charlie Sheen’s “Anger Management.”
