Alec Baldwin and Kelsey Grammer to Star in Comedy Series from Modern Family Creator
Alec Baldwin and Kelsey Grammer are teaming up for a new comedy series, coming to ABC next fall.
According to a press release obtained by PEOPLE, 20 Television is the studio behind the project, which will be spearheaded by Modern Family's co-creator Chris Lloyd and the hit's executive producer, Vali Chandrasekaran. Both will serve as writers and executive producers for the new series alongside Baldwin and Grammer.
The untitled show is said to follow three men — two of which are played by Baldwin, 62, and Grammer, 65 — who were roommates in their twenties until they fell out. The series will focus on when they reunite years later. The actor for the third character has yet to be cast.
Aside from reuniting Lloyd and Chandrasekaran, the show is also a reunion for the producers and actors. Previously, Lloyd collaborated with Grammer on Frasier and Fox's Back to You. Meanwhile, Baldwin worked with Chandrasekaran on NBC's 30 Rock.
