Newswire: Kelsey Grammer to play Kristen Bell’s dad in new Netflix comedy
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kristen Bell and Kelsey Grammer are in negotiations to star in a new Netflix comedy called Like Father. The movie is the directorial debut of Lauren Miller Rogen, who also wrote it, and it’s about a “workaholic woman” who gets left at the alter and goes on a honeymoon cruise by herself, only to bump into the “equally workaholic” father who left her and her mom when she was a kid. Given the title, she’ll presumably realize that she has become just like her shitty father, and she’ll learn some important lessons about the importance of family or whatever. The Hollywood Reporter story also describes it as a “low-budget comedy,” so Bell and Grammer probably won’t visit too many exotic locations on that cruise.
