PARAMOUNT'S NEW COMEDY SERIES 'FRASIER' BEGINS PRODUCTION AUG. 11 IN HOLLYWOOD

 LOS ANGELES, Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- "Frasier," the new half-hour comedy series from the Emmy Award-winning producing team of David Angell, Peter Casey and David Lee ("Wings," "Cheers") begins production Wednesday, Aug. 11. Starring are Emmy Award-winner Kelsey Grammer, who reprises his popular role of Dr. Frasier Crane originated on "Cheers," Tony Award-winner John Mahoney as Martin Crane, Jane Leeves as Daphne Moon, David Hyde Pierce as Niles Crane, Peri Gilpin as Roz Doyle and Moose as Eddie, the dog. "Frasier" premieres on Thursday, Sept. 16 at 9:30 p.m. (ET) on NBC-TV.
 The new series begins with Frasier leaving his beloved Boston and broken marriage to return to his hometown of Seattle, reuniting him with his prickly retired father, Martin, and his psychiatrist brother, Niles. In an attempt to begin a new and simpler life in the lush Pacific Northwest, Frasier becomes a pop radio psychiatrist dispensing his sometimes unconventional advice over the airwaves to those in search of guidance. Aided by his witty producer Roz Doyle and a healthy dose of espresso, Frasier gleans life lessons from his callers for his own personal growth.
 Everything appears letter perfect -- until his brother Niles informs him that their widowed father, Martin, a tough ex-cop injured in the line of duty cannot live on his own anymore. Frasier reluctantly agrees to share his new-found solitude with his father and his father's dog, Eddie, but his sanity is pushed to its outer limits when he hires a semi-psychic home-care worker, Daphne Moon (Leeves).
 "Frasier" is a Grub Street Production in association with Paramount Network Television and is filmed before a live studio audience at the Paramount Studios in Hollywood. The Paramount Television Group is part of the entertainment operations of Paramount Communications Inc.
