TV Fact #160 – March 23rd, 2015:

Although actor Kelsey Grammer agreed to star in the “Cheers” (1982-1993) spin-off “Frasier” (1993-2004) as Frasier Crane, the producers set the new show as far from Boston as possible to prevent NBC from demanding that other characters from the old show make guest appearances on the new show during its first season. After first choosing Denver, “Frasier” creators David Angell, Peter Casey, and David Lee ultimately chose Seattle as the setting. Hey, “Cheers” was a great show but doesn’t a show deserve to be stand on it’s own two feet for integrity reasons?
