Comingsoon.net is reporting the Fox has won the broadcast rights to Action News, a new sitcom starring Frasier’s Kelsey Grammer and Patricia Heaton of Everybody Loves Raymond. Multiple Emmy winners both, they will team with Christopher Lloyd and Steve Levitan, the genius writers from both Frasier and Cheers.

It’ll be an ensemble comedy about two TV reporters and former colleagues, now reunited at a local TV station. ….My guess is that the two have a bad history together and won’t exactly get along.

Kelsey Grammer as Frasier Crane

My second guess would be that Grammer will be playing a smug prima donna while Heaton will shine as an in-your-face, yelling, whining complainer.

Patricia Heaton as Debra Barone

In other words, we’ll be watching Frasier and Debra read the news.

Don’t take that to be a criticism. I predict this will be a HUGE hit.
