‘Partners’ Episode Guide (Aug. 4): Exposing a Shady Wedding Planner

“They Come Together” Series Premiere (08/04/14; 9:00-9:30PM) – Meeting in court on the worst day of their lives, do-good community lawyer Marcus Jackson meets unscrupulous corporate reject Allen Braddock, forming an unexpected partnership. Written by Bob Boyett & Robert Horn; directed by Kelsey Grammer.

“Let’s Have a Simple Gwedding” (08/04/14; 9:30-10:00PM) – When a gay couple suspects their wedding planner of fraud, the guys go undercover as an engaged couple to expose the scam. Written by Robert Horn; directed by Joe Regalbuto.

In FX’s “Partners,” Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence play two Chicago lawyers from vastly different backgrounds who unexpectedly meet in court as they each face a personal crisis. Marcus Jackson (Lawrence) is a kind-hearted community activist going through a heartbreaking divorce when he meets Allen Braddock (Grammer), an elitist lawyer who has just been fired from his father’s firm.

Brought together by fate and desperation, they develop a partnership and friendship, forcing each other to find the balance between the ethical and the unscrupulous in both their professional and personal lives.

Other series regulars include Telma Hopkins, Rory O’Malley, McKaley Miller, Edi Patterson and Danièle Watts.

Bob Boyett and Robert Horn serve as Executive Producers and Showrunners. Executive Producers also include Martin Lawrence, Kelsey Grammer, Brian Sher, Stella Bulochnikov, Michael Green and Sam Maydew.

The series is produced by Lionsgate Television in association with Grammnet NH Productions and You Go Boy Productions. It is distributed by Debmar-Mercury.

FX ordered 10 episodes of Partners as part of a unique syndication model crafted by Debmar-Mercury for multiple sitcoms. As is standard with the 10/90 model, if the series meets designated ratings thresholds over its first 10-episode run, the network will trigger an additional 90-episode order.
