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."
