According to Deadline, Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence are in early talks about starring in a TV comedy together. If the show does materialize, it would be a multi-camera sitcom produced by Lionsgate TV and it would supposedly have a modern day Odd Couple feel to it.
The seeds were sewn for the show during a recent meeting between Lionsgate, Lawrence, and Grammer, where the two actors apparently had great chemistry together. This would be a return to their sitcom roots for both Grammer and Lawrence, who have struggled somewhat to find a project with staying power following the end of Frasier and Martin, respectively.
In the next few weeks, the studio will begin meeting with potential showrunners, writers, and creators to nail down a tone and direction for the series, which is on the fast track over at Lionsgate.
