It’s been nearly three years since we shared the first excerpt from Kelsey Grammer’s rejected pilot script for a dark and gritty Frasier reboot. And now, at long last, we are able to present to you the final 10 pages of this twisted saga, obtained exclusively from a source close to Mr. Grammer. Please ignore the fact that in previous installments we referred to Frasier Crane as a feature-length screenplay. We were mistaken; it actually is and always has been a one-hour TV pilot.

Over the past year, rumors have been swirling about a possible revival of the beloved NBC sitcom Frasier, though star Kelsey Grammer has expressed some doubt about the prospects of the classic show returning to the airwaves, apparently concerned about getting it just right. Recently, during an appearance on The Late Late Show, Grammer got a little more specific about his hesitation to jump into any old reboot:
“The first principle is that it is a different story, basically,” he told host James Corden. “Same group of characters but in a different setting. Something has changed in their lives. Certainly John Mahoney died over a year ago and we would probably deal with that a little bit with dad being gone.”
Grammer calls the potential revival “the third act of Frasier rather than trying to pick it up, like Will & Grace did, right where they were.”

In 2013, sensing the popularity of reboots and sequels to popular franchises, Kelsey Grammer saw an opportunity to revive his beloved TV character, Dr. Frasier Crane. With the blessing of surviving Frasier creators Peter Casey and David Lee, Grammer arranged a pitch meeting with NBCUniversal. But the execs were stunned two weeks later, when the former Cheers regular showed up with not just a pitch, but a completed draft of a feature-length screenplay.
