When Karen sets Will up with her hot cousin Barry, Will finds a geeky guy with a scraggly beard and greasy hair? and he just came out. Meanwhile, Grace is puzzled over what to make of her strange bohemian neighbor when she moves into Leo's Brooklyn digs.
The show takes place in New York City and focuses on Will Truman, a gay man and lawyer, and his best friend Grace Adler, a Jewish woman who runs her own interior design firm.
Also featured are their friends Karen Walker, a rich socialite, and Jack McFarland, a struggling actor/singer/dancer who also has had brief careers as an acting teacher, back-up dancer, cater-waiter, talk-show host and student nurse.
