Kelsey Grammer is going to a place where everybody knows his name: weekly television.
The 55-year-old former "Cheers" and "Frasier" actor – currently appearing on Broadway in "La Cage Aux Folles" - is set to headline the new Starz series "Boss," Deadline.com reports.
In the political drama, Grammer will play a Chicago mayor who is diagnosed with a degenerative mental condition. The politician, however, keeps his illness a secret from everyone but his doctor.
Acclaimed "Milk" director Gus Van Sant will direct the "Boss" pilot and serve as co-executive producer on the series, which was inspired by Shakespeare's "King Lear." The show will mark Van Sant's first foray into television, reports Deadline, and Grammer's first cable and drama series.
"Boss" is expected to run for eight episodes, though an airdate has not yet been announced.
