CBS Cancels Freshman Comedy PARTNERS, Starring Michael Urie
| Paramount Television and Anonymous Content Acquire Rights to Hilde Lysiak's Forthcoming Four Book Series HILDE CRACKS THE CASE|
August 25, 2016
Deadline reports that CBS has cancelled its freshman comedy series PARTNERS. The show, starring David Krumholtz and Michael Urie, will be taken from its time slot immediately and replaced by comedy repeats. The show had hit a ratings low this Monday.
CBS recently ordered Elementary and Vegas for full-seasons. It's freshman drama 'Made in Jersey' was the first casualty of the season, cancelled earlier in the fall.
PARTNERS is a comedy based on the lives of creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, about two life-long best friends and business partners whose “bromance” is tested when one of them is engaged to be married. Joe 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, who is spontaneous, emotional and prone to exaggeration.
Both have found joy in their love lives: Joe is newly engaged to Ali, a beautiful and sophisticated jewelry designer, and Louis’ companion is Wyatt, 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.
