The star h as been meeting with writers to come up with ideas for a reboot of the show, probably set in a new city, Hollywood website Deadline reports.

"Frasier" was one of the most successful sitcoms of its era.

It's been 14 years since we last caught up with Dr Frasier Crane, but he might be about to make a sensational return to TV.

Acclaimed by critics for its witty dialogue and strong characterisation, Frasier won a total of five Emmy awards for outstanding comedy series, a record figure that has only been matched since by Modern Family. His disabled father, a former police officer, soon moves in with his dog, and Frasier's fastidious brother Niles is always on hand for a dose of sibling rivalry. The show, produced by Grammer's Grammnet Prods. and CBS TV Studios' predecessor Paramount Network Television, ran on NBC for 11 seasons, from 1993 to 2004, and starred Grammer, David Hyde Pierce, Jane Leeves, Peri Gilpin, and the late John Mahoney.

American Pastor Detained in Turkey to Move to House Arrest
The United States has threatened Turkey with sanctions over a detained American pastor held on terror and espionage charges. Trump had previously called Brunson's detention "a total disgrace" and issued repeated calls for the pastor's release.

But Putin said otherwise: #Resistance embraces Russian president to counter Trump
Pushing the meeting until next year would help avoid an uproar that could damage Republican candidates in the November elections. Trump has invited Putin to the White House this fall as a follow-up to their private meeting in Helsinki last week.

The Deadwood Movie Is Actually, Definitely, Finally Happening at HBO
Bloys is aiming for a 2019 start date, reminding the assembled press that they don't even have a director or cast in place yet. HBO set up five of these projects - all prequels rather than straight-up spin-offs, according to Thrones author George R.R.

Of course, Frasier was a spinoff of Cheers after Dr. Crane relocated from Boston to Seattle - so it seems like they're interested in pursuing a similar approach.

"I hear Grammer is now meeting with writers who are pitching different concepts for the potential followup series", Deadline reporter Nellie Andreeva wrote.

The Frasier reboot reportedly is still in the concept stage, and Grammer is shopping it around to interested parties.
