Kelsey Grammer has announced his return to American TV one week after his long-running sit-com Frasier concluded - he's fronting a comedy sketch show.

The star has agreed to present THE KELSEY GRAMMER SKETCH SHOW, which will be a six-episode series based on a British format.

Grammer jokes that one of the sketches about flatulence will shock his normal fans.

He laughs, "There's a certain type of thing people expect my name to be on. And farting isn't one of them.

"I like the idea that there's nothing really like it on TV in America at the moment. And if you don't like the sketch you're watching, you'll be into the next one before you knew it."

The series is expected to hit the small screen in September (04).
