Kelsey Grammer is working to get a reboot of “Frasier” off the ground.
According to Deadline, the star and producer of the classic sitcom is exploring the idea with CBS TV Studios.
In contrast to recent series revivals like “Will & Grace”, “Murphy Brown” and “Roseanne”, the new “Frasier” is being pitched as much more of a reboot, with Grammer returning in the title role but the location likely moving to a new city.
The original series ran from 1993 to 2004, with Grammer starring as psychiatrist Frasier Crane reconnecting with his father and brother in Seattle.
Grammer originated the character on the Boston-set sitcom “Cheers”.
Deadline reports that Grammer has been meeting with writers pitching concepts for the potential reboot.
