Partners is an American television sitcom created by David Kohan and Max Mutchnick which follows polar opposites Louis and Joe, who are lifelong friends and partners in an architecture firm. Their "bromance" is tested when Joe gets engaged and Louis is in a new relationship.
Joe (David Krumholtz) 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 (Michael Urie), who is spontaneous, emotional and prone to exaggeration.
Both have found joy in their love lives: Joe is newly engaged to Ali (Sophia Bush), a beautiful and sophisticated jewelry designer, while Louis is dating Wyatt (Brandon Routh), 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.
Emmy Award winners David Kohan and Max Mutchnick are executive producers for Warner Bros. Television. Emmy Award winner James Burrows directed the pilot.
The series aired in the USA on CBS from 24 September to 12 November, 2012. Although 13 half-hour episodes were produced, only six aired on CBS and only 10 on Vuzu and Vuzu Amp.
