Two small-screen titans are coming together for more syndicated LMFAO-ing. From the makers of Girlfriends, The Game, Living Single and Designing Women, FX’s new “odd couple” series, Partners, unites Martin Lawrence (star of Martin) and Kelsey Grammer (Frasier), who play two Chicago lawyers from different worlds. Marcus Jackson (Lawrence) is the sweetie pie activist powering through a divorce, who meets Allen Braddock (Grammer), who gets the Donald Trump treatment from his father’s firm. Here, the two strike up an unlikely bromance while trying to make sense of the crazy in their professional and personal lives. In this exclusive clip, Jackson accidentally roofies himself and tries to use a sandwich as a texting device. Tune in to Martin Lawrence’s return to TV forPartners, when it premieres Monday, Aug. 4 at 9pm on FX.
