Synopsis

Will Truman and Grace Adler are ex-sweethearts, on-again-off-again roommates and best friends.

Will is a gay lawyer who once dated Grace in high school until, with the help of Jack McFarland, he came out of the closet.

Since then the two have become best friends, relying on each other for help and support in their everyday lives. Which is not so everyday for the rest of us.

Grace is a Jewish interior designer who has been rumoured to turn straight guys gay, after two of her boyfriends came out of the closet after dating her.

They share their lives with two other kooky best friends. Jack McFarland, a gay wanna-be actor, and Karen Walker, a rich alcoholic socialite who works as Grace's assistant.

Their everyday antics cover issues relating to gay relationships, straight relationships and just about any relationship you can think of.
