Call it David & Max -- Will & Grace creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick are teaming with CBS for their next comedy project, which is loosely based on their friendship.

The network has given a put pilot commitment to the untitled multicamera show from the Emmy-winning duo, to be produced by Warner Bros. TV and Kohan and Mutchnick's studio-based KoMut Entertainment.

Kohan, who is straight, and Mutchnick, who is gay, have been friends since their teen years at Beverly Hills High School. Like "Will & Grace," their project for CBS is a buddy comedy about a quartet of characters -- a gay writer and a straight writer, who are best friends, and their hot young assistants.

Kohan and Mutchnick are writing and executive producing the show, which marks the duo's second collaboration with CBS. The two executive produced the network's comedy series The Stones, which was created by Kohan's sister Jenji Kohan.

Kohan and Mutchnick most recently created and executive produced the comedies Four Kings for NBC and Twins for WB Network last season.
