In The Space Between, Grammer’s character Mickey Adams is trying to find his place in the 1990s Los Angeles music scene when his label decides to drop him after he decides to start making more experimental albums.
Sporting long, shaggy hair and an unkempt beard, the actor takes a copious amount of questionable substances and waxes philosophical about life and love as ageing rock star.
Here’s the trailer:
The synopsis for The Space Between reads:
“Golden Globe(TM) Winner Kelsey Grammer stars in the inspiring coming of age story, set during the iconic 90s LA music scene. Micky Adams (Grammer), an eccentric has-been rock musician, loses his grip on reality all while his record label is looking to drop him and his newly created “unique” albums. In hopes of breaking out of the record-label mailroom, a young Charlie Porter is tasked with traveling to the musician’s bizarre home and forcing Micky Adams out of his contract. Micky realizes Charlie could be the key to an artistic break through, and the pair’s unlikely friendship grows. The odd but powerful bond helps both gain perspective from each other on the music industry, life, love… and the space between.”
Once he’s gotten over his rock star phase in The Space Between, Grammer will soon be on much more familiar ground, teaming up with Paramount once again for the recently announced Paramount+ Frasier revival.
With the streaming platform hoping to compete with other streaming services, the studio has decided to reach backwards into their vast well of beloved shows and are reportedly bring Dr. Frasier Crane back into the fray.
CBS Studios president David Stapf added:
“Frasier is one of the most acclaimed comedies in modern television history and truly defines premium storytelling. There has long been a call from fans for its return, and that call is now answered thanks to the amazing Kelsey Grammer reprising his iconic role of Dr. Frasier Crane and a brilliant creative plan from Joe, Chris and Kelsey. We can’t wait to reveal its next chapter on Paramount +.”
Directed by Winter, The Space Between also stars Julia Goldani Telles, Paris Jackson, Andy Daly, and William Fichtner alongside Grammer, as well as featuring original music by Rivers Cuomo.
The Space Between is set to arrive in theaters on April 23rd.
