The two will play Chicago lawyers from different backgrounds.

Martin Lawrence and Kelsey Grammer will lend their comedic talents to Partners, a new comedy slated to premiere on Aug 4 on FX.

The actors will play Marcus Jackson and Allen Braddock, two Chicago lawyers from extremely different backgrounds. As each man is working through a personal crisis of his own, the two meet in court and develop a friendship and a partnership.

Headlined by two of the most popular comedic actors in the US, the series is expected to be a hit with audiences. Lawrence is best known for his long-running TV show Martin and for his involvement in the Bad Boys and Big Momma franchises, while Grammer is still associated with the role he played on Cheers and its spin-off Frasier. More recently, Grammer shifted gears to take the lead role of the Starz political drama Boss.

FX has ordered 10 episodes of Partners for the first season. If this initial run lives up to the network’s expectations, the show will sign up to produce an additional 90 episodes. FX employed a similar development model for Anger Management, the comedy starring Charlie Sheen. – AFP Relaxnews
