Martin Lawrence Returns To Television In Partners
Martin Lawrence makes his highly anticipated return to TV in a new FX comedy called Partners next week. The show stars the legendary comedian and Kelsey Grammer as two Chicago lawyers from different backgrounds who form an unlikely partnership after meeting in court. According to FX’s website:
“After his father fires him from the family law firm, Allen Braddock [Grammer] seeks to get back in the lawyering game on his own terms – making big bucks on high profile cases via legal loopholes and skirting ethics. Recently divorced, nice-guy Marcus [Lawrence] tries to balance family and operating his law office out of his home, doing cases for neighbors and friends pro-bono, or for baked goods.
When a court ordered sanction teams Allen Braddock with Marcus Jackson in hopes that some of Marcus’ conscience will rub off, the two find themselves in a partnership nature never intended.”
Outside of guest appearances on Love That Girl!, a TV One show he executive produced, Martin has not starred on TV since his own self-titled hit series went off the air. The show ran from 1992 to 1997 on Fox, and was a huge success. The sitcom became the anchor of Fox’s Thursday-night line-up, which pulled millions of viewers away from NBC’s “Must See TV” line-up.
Partners premieres Monday, August 4 at 9pm. Check out a clip from the show below, and let us know if you’ll be tuning in by leaving us a comment.
