LONDON — U.K. hybrid pubcaster Channel 4 has bought exclusive U.K. rights to Fox’s “Back to You” starring Kelsey Grammer and Patricia Heaton, after May’s L.A. Screenings.
The laffer features the pair as news anchors reunited at a Pittsburgh TV station struggling to win auds. “Back to You” is created, written and executive-produced by “Frasier” alums Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd.
C4 also has bought Warner Bros’ “Big Bang Theory.” Web, which broke “Friends” and “Frasier” in Blighty, traditionally airs U.S. comedies in Friday night primetime slots.
