Kelsey Grammer To Direct New Michael Chiklis CBS Pilot
The newly divorced and married Kelsey Grammer is heading back to the directorial game. CBS has tapped the former Frasier lead to helm its new pilot Vince Uncensored. Unlike most major sitcom stars that step behind the camera of their own shows now and again to give it the old college try, Grammer has really taken a shine to behind the scenes work, regardless of whether heís acting in the program. Vince Uncensored will mark his fifth network pilot, one of which, Out Of Practice, actually got a green light.
According to Deadline, former Shield star Michael Chiklis has boarded to star in the vehicle, something he probably wasnít expecting a year ago when he agreed to top the highly budgeted No Ordinary Family. Letís hope this project doesnít implode as quickly. It follows a man who alters his priorities, takes stock of his life and starts behaving in a fundamentally different way.
Late night host Conan OíBrien is also attached to the project in a producerís role, though itís unclear how much hands on impact he might have.
