David Krumholtz is nearing a deal to star in an upcoming CBS comedy. Partners also stars Michael Urie (formerly of Ugly Betty) and the project comes from the creators of Will and Grace. Sounds like a fantastic formula for success to us. Michael Urie was amazing on Ugly Betty and we always love us some Krumholtz. Here are some details about the show:
Partners follows two architects — Charlie (Krumholtz) is straight, Louis (Urie) gay — whose friendship has lasted longer than either of their romantic relationships and almost seems like a weird marriage. When Charlie decides to propose to his girlfriend (One Tree Hill‘s Sophia Bush), Louis’ neurotic attempts to be supportive nearly result in the breakup of his own relationship. Erstwhile Man of Steel Brandon Routh costars as Louis’ boyfriend.
The project, which brings Krumholtz back into the CBS fold for the first time since his Numb3rs days (he’s even playing another Charlie!), is based on Kohan and Mutchnick’s own relationship.
This sounds great. Here’s hoping it gets picked up. If you haven’t already, you should follow David on twitter here because he’s awesome.
