Grammer Skeds Slate For His Grammnet Prods.

“Frasier” star Kelsey Grammer is lining up a slate of projects he will produce through his Grammnet Prods., a 2-year-old entity based at Paramount, which produces his hit NBC series.

Grammnet’s lineup includes “Fired,” a sitcom script commitment at NBC written by former “America’s Funniest People” co-host Arleen Sorkin and Paul Slansky, described as a buddy comedy about two women who go into business together.

The company also is developing a drama, “Logan Square,” at ABC with playwright Jose Rivera (“Eerie, Indiana”) and veteran producer William Sackheim.

In addition, Grammnet has optioned the one-man play “The Only Thing Worse You Could Have Told Me” by “Frasier” co-star Dan Butler, with plans to develop the material as a feature. The company also is involved with Showtime and Paramount (both divisions of Viacom) in the “Act One” Play Festival, staging a series of plays at the Met Theater in Los Angeles.

Rudy Hornish is Grammnet’s director of development, having joined the firm shortly after Grammer inked his first-look deal at Paramount in 1993. A two-time Emmy winner for “Frasier,” Grammer also has starred in NBC’s “The Innocent,” and hosted “Kelsey Grammer Salutes Jack Benny,” a special airing last week on the Peacock network.
