Partners, which is based on the lives of Mutchnick and his creative partner David Kohan, is about two lifelong best friends and business partners whose “bromance” is tested when one of them gets engaged to be married. As the engagement news settles, time will tell if their business and personal bond can adapt to the addition of two other important relationships.
National Correspondent Lee Cowan profiled the new sitcom as well reported on Mutchnick’s and Kohan’s careers September 30 on CBS Sunday Morning.
