Born and raised in Rhode Island, David Angell is best known as a co-creator of the popular long-running sitcom "Frasier." Angell worked outside of show business in New England until the late 1970s, when he relocated to Los Angeles and started shopping around television scripts. Finding only mild success in writing during the early '80s, most notably penning episodes of "Archie Bunker's Place," Angell hit a winning streak by signing on to the popular comedy "Cheers," first as a writer and then as a producer. In '90, Angell joined with fellow "Cheers" collaborators Peter Casey and David Lee to create the airport-centric sitcom "Wings," and a few years later, the trio unveiled the "Frasier" series, a spin-off of "Cheers" starring Kelsey Grammer as the uptight Dr. Frasier Crane. "Frasier" ran for 11 seasons, ending in 2004, but, sadly Angell didn't survive to see the end of the series-he and his wife were killed in the attacks of 9/11. Despite his tragic death, Angell is fondly remembered for the clever, good-natured humor that he showcased on "Cheers," "Wings," and "Frasier."
