‘Partners’ Episode Guide (Aug. 25): Investigating a Fertility Clinic

“The Curious Case of Benjamin Butt-Ugly” (08/25/14; 9:00-9:30PM) – When one of Allen’s former colleagues wants to divorce his wife over an ugly baby he can’t believe he fathered, the guys investigate a fertility clinic to uncover the sticky truth. Written by Allan Rice; directed by Rich Correll.

“The Law School Reunion” (08/25/14; 9:30-10:00PM) – When Allen brings Marcus to his prestigious law school reunion, Allen finds himself sidelined by his friends and unexpectedly outshined by his partner. Written by David Arnold; directed by Kelsey Grammer.

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.
