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.
