“Married With Friends” based on real-life Star Couple
Some relatable content is on its way as CBS confirms the making of Married with Friends. The comedy will be based on the events of real-life star couple Blake Lee and Ben Lewis. The duo will portray a married gay couple Bo and Arthur on-screen. Moreover, the story is about a group of friends, trying to figure out life, relationships, and the star couple keeping them all together. It sounds amusing already!
The board of creators
The CBS creation is written by Julia Meltzer. Highly talented Corrine Kingsbury would be supervising. Corrine has previously worked on Fam and In the Dark. Lee, Lewis, and Meltzer are the co-executive producers. Kingsbury will act as executive producer. Eighty-Two Cents and CBS Studios are the producers in association.
A reunion for Lewis and Kingsbury
We saw Lee and Lewis together in The Christmas Setup, a movie by Lifetime. The movie did great and won a nomination for the 2001 GLAAD Media Award. Eventually, “Married With Friends” has brought Lewis and Kingsbury together. They previously worked together in the Kingsbury creation- Fam. Lewis has played Ben in the series that was one season long. Lewis is also famous for his role in Arrow where he played William Clayton.
The rest of the team
Besides Lewis, Lee also has a lot of notable achievements. Lee recently worked on Cruel Summer by Freeform. Moreover, he has been a regular on the series Wisdom of the Crowd. The whole team is repped by a large number of companies. Lewis by Canopy media Partners, Edna Management, and TalentWorks. Lee by Innovative Artists, Management 360, and Attorney Melissa Fox. Meltzer by IC, Nelson Davis, Kaplan/Perrone. Fourth Wall Management, WME, and attorney Adam Kaller have repped Kinsbury. Can’t wait to see the work done by such artists!
