Emmy Award winners David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, creators of NBC’s Emmy-Award-winning comedy “Will & Grace,” present “Four Kings,” an exploration of four lifelong friends on the cusp of adulthood.
Barry (Seth Green “Austin Powers” franchise, “Italian Job”), Bobby (Shane McRae, “One Life to Live”), Ben (Josh Cooke, NBC’s “Committed”) and Jason (Todd Grinnell, “The Dangling Conversation”) couldn’t imagine life without one another. Since childhood, these bosom buddies haven’t spent so much as a birthday apart, but when Ben’s grandmother, who dubbed them the “Four Kings of New York,” passes away, Ben (and essentially his close friends) inherits her apartment.
But despite the comfort of their posh new surroundings and efforts to cling to their youth, adulthood begins drawing these Four Kings knee-deep into situations that aren’t always easy to escape in this honest exploration of life-term friendship.
“FOUR KINGS” Premieres This Thursday at 8:30p.m. on NBC 26
Premier EPISODE Preview:
US OR HER – Barry (Seth Green), Ben (Josh Cooke), Bobby (Shane McRae), and Jason (Todd Grinnell) have been best friends their entire lives and haven’t even spent a birthday apart. When Ben’s grandmother, who has dubbed them the “Four Kings of New York,” passes away, Ben inherits her large, posh apartment. Ben, of course, asks his friends to move in with him, but his girlfriend Jenny (guest star Kiele Sanchez) conveniently decides that it’s a good time in their relationship for them to move in together. As the guys prepare to make the move, having decided that there’s enough room for all of them, Jen gives Ben an ultimatum – his friends or her.
