Familiar faces behind the camera
Frasier was created by writers Chris Harris (How I Met Your Mother) and Joe Cristalli (Life in Pieces), who are also executive producers alongside Kelsey Grammer, Tom Russo and Jordan McMahon. The first two episodes of the new series are directed by television creator James Burroughs, best known for his work as co-creator, executive producer and director of the critically acclaimed series “Cheers,” as well as the original series “Frasier.” “Will & Grace” and “Dear John.”
This year marks 30 years since the original Frasier first aired on television, and it still holds the record for the most Emmy Awards for a comedy series: it has won 37 times and been nominated 107 times.
