In what will go down in television history as one of the oddest pairings, Martin Lawrence and Kelsey Grammer will star in a as-yet-untitled series for FX as a couple of Chicago lawyers. Much like the network’s Anger Management, the sitcom has been picked up with a 10/90 deal, which means if the first 10 land decent ratings, an immediate 90 shows will be ordered. TBS inked the same deal with Ice Cube to executive produce Are We There Yet?, which premiered in 2010 has run only three seasons and is already in syndication. Bob Boyett (Full House, Family Matters) and Robert Horn (Designing Women, Living Single) will executive produce and write Lawrence/Grammer series.
