Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence: new odd couple?

Dr. Frasier Crane and Martin Payne, together at least.

Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence are in discussions to star in and produce a Lionsgate TV comedy series. It would be a multi- camera comedy, with an “odd couple” feel.

The two met in November right before Thanksgiving with Lionsgate. The two actors apparently showed great chemistry.

Grammer might be keeping a lid on the project until his divorce with Camille Grammer is finalized, as she might try to lay claim; she owned half of Grammnet Productions and worked as a creator, writer and executive producer in the production company.

The show would likely use a model established by “Anger Management” with Charlie Sheen: the company sells a sitcom to the cable network with a 10- episode run, and then if ratings are reached, a multi- season order as large as 90 episodes is triggered. That would quickly get the show into syndication. A family sitcom starring George Lopez, using that same model, is also being developed by Debmar- Mercury.

Grammer played Frasier Crane on two shows over 20 years. Martin had his self- titled sitcom on Fox for five years.

Grammer is repped by WME, and Lawrence by UTA.
