A new television series airing Monday on CBS is based on the lives of its creators, Beverly Hills High School alumni Max Mutchnick and David Kohan.
Partners, which airs from 8:30-9 p.m., stars David Krumholtz and Michael Urie. They portray two lifelong best friends and business partners, one gay and one straight, whose relationship is tested when one of them is engaged to be married.
Mutchnick, 47, and Kohan, 48, met as 14-year-old students at BHHS. They both reside in Beverly Hills.
"We have a way of communicating and a way of resolving our issues that is sometimes loud but usually effective," Kohan said during a summer press tour. "If you try to bring that dynamic to your partnership at home, it may or may not work the same way and there's usually a built-in tension there. I get this from my spouse at work, why do I not get this from my spouse at home? That was the dynamic we were interested in exploring."
Mutchnick and Kohan also created Will & Grace, which ended its eight-season run in 2006.
