Actor Kelsey Grammer has revealed that at least ‘six different ideas’ are in contention for a revival/spin-off of the classic NBC sitcom “Frasier” in which he starred.
Grammer revealed the news on British talk-show “Lorraine” this week and follows the news last year that Grammer was in talks with CBS Television Studios and writers on a pitch to bring the show back. Grammer was recently spotted in London with a “Frasier” script and he explained:
“That little folder is filled with six different ideas that are all in contention for what may be the new Frasier. A continuation of Frasier. They’re similar, it’s a new life, in a new city. Of course, John Mahoney died so you’d need to replace that energy, perhaps like they did on Cheers with Coach, they found Woody, who had the same kind of sensibility.”
“Frasier” ended its 264-episode run in 2004, the title character seen leaving Seattle for Chicago, and the show remains one of the most celebrated comedy series of the 1990s and 2000s.
