FX has closed a deal with Lionsgate Television for ten episodes of their new untitled sitcom starring Martin Lawrence and Kelsey Grammer. Bob Boyett and Robert Horn will executive produce and write the series.
Lawrence and Grammer play two Chicago lawyers from vastly different backgrounds who unexpectedly meet in court on the worst day of their lives. They develop a partnership, forcing each other to find the balance between the ethical and the unscrupulous in both their professional and personal lives.
Like with “Anger Management,” if the series meets designated ratings thresholds over its first ten episodes – the network will trigger an additional ninety episode order.
