star Kelsey Grammer
is returning to TV in a new sitcom pilot.
The actor will play a tycoon forced to reconnect with his family when he loses his job in the as-yet-untitled show.
Grammer, who won numerous awards during his 20-year stint playing Dr. Frasier Crane
in the two hit shows, will hope the new program is a bigger success than his last comedy outing, Back To You
, which was axed in 2008 after just 17 episodes.
