“Ugly Betty” star Michael Urie has joined CBS comedy pilot “Partners,” from “Will and Grace” dream team David Kohan and Max Mutchnick.

Urie plays Louis, a gay architect whose straight business partner, Charlie, has been his best friend since childhood. The story is based on Kohan and Mutchnick’s real life partnership and BFF-ship.

“One Tree Hill’s” Sophia Bush has nabbed the lead role of Ali, Charlie’s girlfriend, who complicates Louis’ and Charlie’s epic bromance when Charlie decides to propose. Charlie has yet to be cast, but if we could, we’d already be setting up a season pass on our DVRs.

Currently, Urie can be seen on Broadway in “How to Succeed In Business Without Really Trying” alongside Nick Jonas.

The casting was first reported by TVLine.
