FX Orders 10 Episodes of Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence's Untitled Comedy Series

According to The Hollywood Reporter, FX has ordered a 10-episode trail run of an untitled comedy series starring Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence. If the ratings look promising, the network will automatically order 90 more episodes.

"Martin is arguably one of the funniest men alive and after some success in drama I thought it might be time to try my hand at comedy," Grammer said. "I am thrilled to have this extraordinary team show me the ropes. All kidding aside, I don't think a better bunch of talent exists; I am honored and blessed."

In the show, Grammer and Lawrence play Chicago lawyers who meet in court, form a partnership and ultimately find friendship. Lionsgate Television and Debmar-Mercury are producing alongside Grammar, Lawrence and others.

Five-time Emmy winner Grammer has appeared on television in Cheers and Frasier, as well as the Starz drama Boss. His stage credits include Broadway's La Cage aux Folles, Macbeth and Othello, as well as off-Broadway's Sunday in the Park with George and Quartermaine's Terms.

Lawrence has appeared in the Bad Boys and Big Momma's House films, as well as his sitcom Martin. Other film credits include Death at a Funeral, College Road Trip, Open Season, National Security, Life, Nothing to Lose and more.
