Kelsey Grammer gets in the reality TV game

The web-idea -to-TV-show trend continues with Kelsey Grammer’s latest offering: the former “Frasier” star is set to produce a series about the three women behind the website “ThatsNotOkayNY.com.”

According to TMZ, Grammer has launched a reality TV production company called G3 Productions, and one of his first projects will tell the story of this entrepreneurial trio of friends in NYC.

The three 20-something single women started the site last December after becoming frustrated with their lives, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Apparently, one was tired of being in law school, another had quit the TV production business, and the third was dealing with a breakup.

This led to an email chain about things that just weren’t “okay.” On their site, they explain the idea thusly: “There’s some [expletive] going on in the world today that frankly is just NOT OKAY. You work hard, you treat people well, you take care of your business, but the world is seemingly working against you where ever you go…We aren’t talking weapons-of-mass-destruction-seriousness…we are talking about the little things that turn into big annoyances in your already overly busy, overly stressed, under-appreciated lives.”

For example, “the dude who gave his girlfriend crabs and blamed it on the 2010 NYC bedbug epidemic"? That would be "not okay."

A few mentions on other websites and some celebrity retweets later, and the three friends, who launched the site without Web experience, are the subject of Grammer’s new reality show, which will be pitched to cable and broadcast networks in May.

Perhaps CBS would be interested, seeing that the network already has the Twitter-to-TV show "$#*! My Dad Says" and, according to THR, has signed on for two more Twitter-based shows with "Shh … Don't Tell Steve" and "Girls Above Me."

    Really? Not anymore white reallity shows. It will be boring like most white cast shows now. White producer- white shows and subjects.
