Martin Lawrence, Kelsey Grammer

Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence's FX comedy Partners will premiere Monday, Aug. 4 at 9/8c, the network announced Thursday.

The duo will play two vastly different Chicago lawyers who are brought together by circumstance. Marcus Jackson (Lawrence) is a kind community activist who's going through a heartbreaking divorce. Allen Braddock (Grammer) is an elitist lawyer who's just been fired from his father's firm. But after meeting in court, the pair develop a strong partnership and friendship.

The series will air two back-to-back episodes every Monday for five consecutive weeks.
