‘Housewives’ taps duo

'Frasier' scribes promise laughs

“Desperate Housewives” is once again tapping into the “Frasier” alum pool to score some laughs, this time hiring scribes Anne Flett-Giordano and Chuck Ranberg.

Flett-Giordano and Ranberg will serve as co-exec producers on the hit ABC series when it returns for a fourth season this fall. The duo fill the void left by the impending departure of Joe Keenan, another former “Frasier” scribe who helped series creator Marc Cherry inject more buzz — and laughs — into “Housewives” this season.

Keenan told Cherry last month that he planned to depart the show at the end of the season (Daily Variety, March 30). Flett-Giordano’s and Ranberg’s names came up at the time as possible replacements, with Cherry said to be high on bringing them on.

Beyond “Frasier,” the vet scribes’ credits include “The Game,” “Hot Properties,” “It’s All Relative” and “Kate & Allie.”
