Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Created by the same team responsible for Will & Grace, the NBC sitcom Four Kings was set in New York, the home of a quartet of lifelong male friends: doofus Barry (Seth Green), irritatingly lucky Ben (Josh Cooke), rising young executive Jason (Todd Grinnell), and air-headed stoner Bobby (Shane McRae). After he inherited a large and luxurious apartment from his late grandmother, Ben intends to use his new digs as a home for himself and his current girlfriend. But when she turns out to be selfish and shallow, Ben invites his three pals to move in with him instead. "Bros Before Hos!" was the rallying cry for the "Four Kings," though their male bonding did not prevent them from squiring lovely ladies whenever the opportunity arose. Scheduled as a lead-in for NBC's Thursday-night hit My Name is Earl, Four Kings debuted January 5, 2006.
