‘One Tree Hill’ Star Sophia Bush is Moving On With New CBS Comedy

Sophia BushOne Tree Hill may drawing to a close this April, but fans can breathe a little sigh of relief because one of the main cast members, Sophia Bush, will soon find another life on television. Deadline reports that she’s set to join Partners, a developing CBS comedy pilot from the minds of Will & Grace’s creators.

The series is borne from the success of the Emmy-winning NBC sitcom, following two architects: Charlie, who is straight, and Louis, who is gay. Their strong friendship has outlasted their romantic relationships, placing them in a sort of Odd Couple space. Okay, now this really sounds like Will & Grace 2.0. We find Charlie proposing to his girlfriend (Bush) and this sends Louis into a tailspin that threatens his own relationship. Okay, no this really, REALLY sounds like Will & Grace 2.0. The Will & Grace pilot finds our duo in a very, very similar situation: the straight one (Grace) is about to marry her fiance, but the gay one (Will) doesn’t approve and from that disapproval comes the conflict of the first episode. And with Partners, the straight one (Charlie) gets a fiance, but the gay one (Louis) has issues with it. They’re somewhat parallel, don’t you think?

Still, since they’ve nabbed a familar face for the soon-to-be fiance, it’s probably safe to assume she’ll stick around for at least a little while. That is, if the series makes it past the pilot.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
