First-time publication of 15 full scripts, including all the Emmy Award winners, of the sensational TV show, starring Kelsey Grammer, David Hyde Pierce, John Mahoney, Jane Leeves, Peri Gilpin, Dan Butler, and Moose, that has won the Emmy Award for best comedy for an unprecedented consecutive five years. Of the one hundred and fifty scripts written for Frasier over the last five years, executive producer Christopher Lloyd says that the 15 chosen for this book are those "that were just right...something about each one--whether it was the particular story we were telling, or the way we were telling it--just struck a nerve with everyone." Starting with The Good Son, the pilot script for the show, "they all deliver on the promise to be funny first," says Lloyd, "but also to be true to the characters, to explore their wants and needs in ways that occasionally achieve something like poignancy. The scripts in this volume represent various approaches to that end." Among them are:
� flat-out farce (The Matchmaker, The Ski Lodge)
� old-fashioned romantic comedy (Mixed Doubles)
� swashbuckling (An Affair to Forget)
� dancing (Moon Dance)
� parody (Slow Tango in South Seattle)
� silent-movie-like (Will You Be Mine?)
Ideal for the millions of Frasier fans, admirers of accomplished humor writing, as well as for students and professionals in the TV and film industries, this book, with background information and photos on the stars and characters, marks the first time that a Frasier script collection has been published in the U.S.
