Frasier is a sitcom that ran from 1993 until 2004 for a grand total of 11 seasons on NBC. The show was actually a spin-off to the classical hit series Cheers, with psychiatrist "Frasier Crane" returning to his hometown of Seattle to start a new life. The show was such a success that it won over 37 Emmy awards altogether, setting a record at the time.
"Dr. Frasier Winslow Crane" is a psychologist who works at the "KACL" Radiostation in Seattle. He is divorced and has a son who lives with his mother in Boston. His interesting relationship with his father as well as his constant search for a long-lasting relationship are the main themes of the series.
From the beginning of the show all the way up to the last episode, Kelsey Grammer played the role of Frasier for the better part of 20 years, which set an official record at the time. Grammer also worked as a voice actor for a variety of animated movies such as Anastasia and Toy Story 2. He has starred in several different franchises such as The Expendables, Transformers, and even the X-Men franchise.
