Starz Gives Greenlight To Gus Van Sant Show Starring Frasier Kelsey Grammer

kelsey grammer to star in gus van sant political drama

This is an really bizarre inneresting combination.

Starz has greenlit a political drama, Boss, starring Kelsey Grammer, written by the Apocalypto co-writer Farhad Safinia, and executive produced by Gus Van Sant, who's also set to direct the pilot episode.

We wonder what kind of political drama you get when you combine people associated with Frasier, Mel Gibson's Mayan movie, and a film about Gay Rights activist Harvey Milk.

Should be inneresting indeed!

Grammer will star as as the Mayor of Chicago, who gets diagnosed with a degenerative medical condition, but doesn't tell anybody.

The show is being described as "a King Lear-inspired tale of power set in Chicago's political machine."

Boss was sought after by several cable networks, but Starz eventually won the bidding war after making an offer for an 8-episode series order.

We'll be very curious to check out this show. Quite the eclectic team behind it!

Will U watch Frasier go political on Starz?

    Please spell correctly or are you so dumbed down you do not know how to. Drives me crazy. There is a site called Dictionary.com.

    Kelsey Grammer could really rock this kind of role. And I pretty much check out everything Gus Van Sant produces/directs… so yes! :-)

    Gus Van Sant + Kelsey Grammer = does not compute !!!
