Kelsey Grammer Eyeing Reboot Series

Adjust Comment Print

It has been reported by Deadline that actor Kelsey Grammer and CBS TV Studios are thinking about creating a new series that would see the cranky radio host looking for a fresh start in a new city.

Frasier itself is a spin-off of the NBC sitcom Cheers.

The show focused on the character of Dr. Frasier Crane, who left his job as a Boston therapist to work on a radio talk show in Seattle.

Frasier was one of the definitive sit-coms of the 1990s and remained so until its final episode in 2004. His disabled father, a former police officer, soon moves in with his dog, and Frasier's fastidious brother Niles is always on hand for a dose of sibling rivalry. At the time, it had the record for the most Emmy Awards for a scripted series with 37, including five Emmys in a row for Outstanding Comedy Series. However, the show's constant re-runs feels like it never went away.

The Frasier reboot reportedly is still in the concept stage, and Grammer is shopping it around to interested parties. And Murphy Brown is set to come back this fall.

Grammer's character, Frasier Crane, originated on Cheers, first as a psychiatrist to Sam Malone (Ted Danson), then as the fiancé of Diane Chambers (Shelley Long) and finally married to Lilith (Bebe Neuwirth).

Recently, news of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" returning with a black lead hit headlines at this year's Comic-Con in San Diego, proving that the nostalgia for former hit TV series shows no sign of waning in Hollywood.
