Previews & Teasers, CBS's PARTNERS, Michael Urie
The new CBS comedy PARTNERS, starring 'How to Succeed in Business' alum Michael Urie, premieres on Monday, September 24th 8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT. In the premiere episode, Joe (David Krumholtz) proposes to girlfriend Ali (Sophia Bush), however his best friend and business parter Louis (Urie) mistakenly assumes they have broken up. Get a sneak peek below!
PARTNERS is a comedy based on the lives of creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, about two life-long best friends and business partners whose “bromance” is tested when one of them is engaged to be married. Joe is an accomplished architect who leads with his head and not his heart, especially in his love life. That’s in stark contrast to his gay co-worker, Louis, who is spontaneous, emotional and prone to exaggeration.
Both have found joy in their love lives: Joe is newly engaged to Ali, a beautiful and sophisticated jewelry designer, and Louis’ companion is Wyatt, a vegan nurse who Louis insists is just a promotion away from becoming a doctor. As news of Joe’s engagement settles, time will tell if their business and personal bond can adapt to the addition of two other important relationships.
Michael Urie made his Broadway debut as Bud Frump in the recent revival of HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING, opposite Nick Jonas and Beau Bridges. He recently starred as Yepikhodov in the Classic Stage Company’s production of Anton Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard and the Signature Theatre Company’s revival of Angels in America as Prior Walter, as well as the 2009’s The Temperamentals, in which he originated the role of Rudi Gernreich and received a Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Lead Actor.
