Posted on

AGES: Kohan (”the straight one,”) is 31. Mutchnick (”the gay one”) is 29. OCCUPATION: Writing team; coproducing the NBC sitcom The Single Guy and developing another comedy for the network. HOW IT WORKS: Kohan: ”We work on every word together — I don’t think of it as a gay/straight thing at all.” Mutchnick: ”More often than not, we walk in to [meet] a gay executive and two things happen. One, that executive identifies with me — we’re in the same club. And two, they like David more, because he’s got a gay partner. We haven’t experienced a bad moment yet.” Kohan: ”Or a straight executive.”
