I’m excited for “Back to You,” the new 1/2 hour comedy on Fox this fall featuring Kelsey Grammer and Patricia Heaton as Pittsburgh news reporters. You can watch clips here. (Click on “New Series” then “Back to You” and “See clips from this show”. See how easy that was?).
The show snapshot says:
In the ‘90s, the local TV news scene in Pittsburgh was dominated by one team: CHUCK DARLING (Kelsey Grammer) and KELLY CARR (Patricia Heaton). They had that elusive quality all news teams need: chemistry … at least on-screen. Off-screen, Chuck was a bit of a self-centered womanizer, Kelly a bit of an uptight know-it-all. So when Chuck got the call to move up to a larger market, no tears were shed.
Sally Wiggin and Don Cannon anyone?
Back in Pittsburgh, Chuck has a new coworker in RYAN CHURCH (Josh Gad, “Mary and Joe”), the overstressed news director. There are also familiar faces like … GARY CREZYZEWSKI, pronounced Kre-shoov-ski, the perennially put-upon field reporter who always seems to get left out in the snow.
Ralph Iannotti anyone?
Here’s hoping at least one episode includes:
Chuck Darling: Good evening and welcome to the five o’clock news. It looks like we might be getting the first snow of the season here in the city.
Kelly Carr: That’s right, Chuck. We now go live to the PennDot parking lot where Gary Two-z’s is standing by the salt trucks as the first flakes are falling, with a report on the expected snowfall accumulation. Gary?
Gary Crezyzewski: We’re all going to die.
