 Funnyman Martin Lawrence is in talks with fellow tv veteran Kelsey Grammer to produce a new sitcom. Get deets on what the comedic twosome are up to inside……

 

Hollywood is a little excited that Martin Lawrence and Kelsey Grammer (“Cheers”, “Frasier”, “Boss”) may pair up for a multi-camera comedy in the same vein as “The Odd Couple.”

Though concrete details have yet to be ironed out, Martin and Kelsey started talks with Lionsgate TV and its subsidiary Debmar-Mercury about the new comedy, and have already started searching for writers.

The company will likely follow its “Buy 10, Get 90” business model where it sells ten episodes of a new series to a network and if certain key demographics are met, the network orders another 90 episodes. It’s the same model the company used with TBS for “House of Payne” and “Are We There Yet?”

This will indeed be an interesting pair with two different senses of comedic talent.  Would you be excited to see Martin back on television?
