For as much as FX's 'Anger Management' has been in the news this week, with questions arising over whether Charlie Sheen would abandon his 10/90 production deal, it seems FX hasn't soured on the format. The cable network has officially purchased an as-yet untitled sitcom starring Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence under the same model, but what will the odd-couple pairing bring to TV?
Although 'Transformers 4' will undoubtedly have plenty of giant robots turning into cars and fighting each other, there will be no shortage of human interaction (i.e. screaming and yelling) between the scenes of carnage. At least we know that some of that screaming and yelling will be dignified and classy thanks to the casting of Kelsey Grammer as the film's human villain.
Well, we figured that Kelsey Grammer would need to find something to do after Starz opted not to go through with a third season of political drama 'Boss,' but this isn't exactly what we had in mind. According to new reports, unusually-matched celebrities Grammer and 'Big Momma's House' star Martin Lawrence are looking into the possibility of developing a sitcom together with Lionsgate TV, but what could the series possibly portray? And what might it have to do with FX's 'Anger Management?'
For as much critical acclaim (including a Golden Globe for Kelsey Grammer) as Starz's 'Boss' managed to garner in its two season run, it seems even mayors can be a slave to ratings. The pay-cable network has opted not to move forward with a third season of the under-performing Chicago mayoral drama, in spite of a cavalcade of stars hire to beef up its buzz. So what are the Starz brass saying of the cancellation, and what might it make room for?
Who were those celebrities guest-calling in to Kelsey Grammer’s fictional talk show on NBC’s ‘Frasier?’ Thanks to the ever-powerful Internet, we now have the answer!
