A 'Frasier' Reboot Could Be in the Works
Published Jul 25, 2018The latest beloved sitcom to get the reboot treatment could be Frasier.
According to Deadline, star and executive producer Kelsey Grammer is in talks with CBS to revive the show.
The publication reports that rather than recruiting the original cast, the show would feature Grammer as the main tie to the original 1993 series, but the reboot would likely be set in a different city.
Grammer is apparently meeting with writers, who are pitching various concepts for follow-up series, though the project is still said to be in the "exploratory" phase.
Frasier was originally created by David Angell, Peter Casey and David Lee, and aired from 1993 until 2004. It was a spinoff from Cheers that saw the title character move from Boston back to his hometown of Seattle to reconnect with his father and brother.
During its run, Frasier won 37 Emmy Awards, setting a record for a scripted series at that time.
