- 1 Season
Partners FX was a comedy television show that aired on FX from 2012 to 2013. Created by David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, the show followed the professional and personal lives of two lifelong friends and business partners, Joe (played by David Krumholtz) and Louis (played by Michael Urie). The two run an accounting firm together and their lives are thrown into chaos when Louis hires his girlfriend, Ali (played by Sophia Bush), as a new employee.
Joe is the straight man of the duo, married with a young daughter, while Louis is more flamboyant and single. Despite their differences, they have a deep friendship and the two share a charming chemistry throughout the show. They balance each other out in a way that makes them an effective team at work, but also a hilarious one onscreen.
Over the course of the show, Joe struggles to balance his work and family life, while Louis is dealing with his own personal issues as a gay man looking for love. Along with Ali, the main characters also interacted with other employees of the accounting firm, such as accountant Wyatt (played by Brandon Routh), receptionist Ro-Ro (played by Tracy Vilar), and assistant nurse Veronica (played by Jillian Bell).
There were also several celebrity guest stars throughout the show's one season run. Molly Shannon played Joe's wife and Veronica's boss, who also had a complicated relationship with Louis. Peter Weller (famous for his role in Robocop) played an eccentric billionaire who enlists Joe and Louis' help with a complicated accounting issue.
Partners FX was praised for its clever writing and nuanced characters. It tackled important social issues, such as homophobia and healthcare, while still maintaining a lighthearted and comedic tone. The main characters were well-developed and their struggles felt relatable, even as they navigated some over-the-top scenarios.
The show was unfortunately cancelled after just one season due to low ratings. Despite its short run, Partners FX remains a cult favorite among fans of the comedy genre. It is still available to stream on various platforms and remains a great choice for those looking for a quick and entertaining binge watch.
Partners FX is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (10 episodes). The series first aired on August 4, 2014.
