We will never escape the deluge of reboots for old TV shows, old movies, and old actors who maybe don't need a comeback. People have become a bit deadened to all the zombie shows lurching around primetime, so it's rare that anything gets people excited. But what if we said....Frasier?
Yes, Deadline is reporting that a potential reboot is being discussed by Kelsey Grammar and CBS, with Grammar appearing once more as the titular character. However, there are some pretty big changes that would have to happen for the show to work, since for one, John Mahoney has died since the series ended. Mahoney played Frasier's father in the show, a contrasting voice to his two sons' snootier worldview.
It's possible the show would be more like a spin off, rather than centering on Frasier himself. That means lots of potential pitches going around the writer's room. And if big Hollywood writers can pitch, so can the Internet!
Ideas for Frasier reboots have been circulating on Twitter and some are better than others.
