"I have learned that Frasier star and executive producer Kelsey Grammer is fielding interest to put together a new Frasier series," reports Deadline's Nellie Andreeva. "Unlike the slew of recent revivals of comedy series with the original cast and original creative auspices, including Will & Grace, Roseanne and Murphy Brown, I hear that Frasier is envisioned as a reboot, likely set in a new city, with the title character, played by Grammer, as a possible link to the Emmy-winning 1993 series." She adds that Grammer has been meeting with "writers who are pitching different concepts for the potential followup series. If the producers settle on a writer and a premise, the project could move beyond exploratory stage."
