TV show description:
In this mockumentary comedy series, Billy Crystal and Josh Gad play fictionalized versions of themselves.
Billy (Crystal) is a comedy legend who’s reluctantly paired with edgy up-and-coming star Josh (Gad) for a late night sketch comedy show. Egos and generations soon collide on The Billy & Josh Show.
Kristen Laybourne (Stephnie Weir) is their anxiety-ridden producer who frequently finds herself caught in the middle of Billy and Josh’s arguments.
Mitch Reed (Matt Oberg) is the show’s head writer and Esme McCauley (Megan Ferguson) is a no-nonsense production assistant.
Together, the behind-the-scenes crew spend most of their time managing the egos of their two stars and the generational divide that keeps them from ever fully seeing eye-to-eye. Sharon (Dana Delany) is Billy’s well-meaning and understanding wife.
Episode #13 — Partners
