But this time it's a comedy about a gay guy and his straight male friend. Variety reports that David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, the creators of NBC's long-running sitcom, have landed a pilot commitment at CBS for a new series centered on two male friends of different sexual orientations. The prospective series is said to mirror the real-life friendship between Mutchnick, who is gay, and Kohan, who is straight (not that there's anything wrong with that).
