A spin-off sitcom from Cheers, created and produced by David Angell, Peter Casey, and David Lee in association with Grammnet (2004) and Paramount Network Television that was aired on NBC from September 16, 1993 to May 13, 2004 for 264 episodes of 24 minutes each and 11 seasons.

The story revolved around a psychiatrist, Dr. Frasier Crane (Kelsey Grammer), the character from the popular sitcom Cheers; who returned to Seattle, Washington, after the end of his marriage and his life in Boston and planned to live a bachelor's life.

But his plans got frustrated because he also had to take care of his omnipresent father, retired police officer Martin Crane (John Mahoney), who was unable to live by himself after being shot in the line of duty. To help his father, Frasier hired Daphne Moon (Jane Leeves), an eccentric English physical therapist and caretaker.

Frasier had a younger brother, Niles Crane (David Hyde Pierce), who also was a psychiatrist and visited frequently their apartment, maybe with more frequency because of hs interests with Daphne, feelings which he did not confess to her openly until the final episode of season 7.

He hosted a popular radio talk show on KACL, where he worked with Roz Doyle (Gilpin), the producer of the program, and very different from Frasier in taste and temperament, but who over time became very close friends.

They all used to visit the local coffee shop Café Nervosa, the scene of many of their comic adventures.

Kelsey Grammer who played the role of Frasier for twenty years straight won 8 awards for that same character, including four Emmys as Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series (1994, 1995, 1998, 2004), two American Comedy Awards as Funniest Male Performer in a TV Series (1995, 1996) and two Golden Globes for Best Performance by an Actor in a TV-Series Comedy/Musical (1996, 2001).

The show won 37 Emmy awards during its 11 year run. Frasier was one of the most successful spin-off series in television history and one of the most critically acclaimed comedy series of all time.
