Burrows Has FOX's 'Back'


The all-star creative line-up for FOX's "Back to You" keeps getting more impressive.

James Burrows, a 10-time Emmy winner, has come aboard the comedy as an executive producer and in-house director, according to the industry trade papers. Burrows previously directed the "Back to You" pilot.

Created by Steve Levitan ("Just Shoot Me") and Christopher Lloyd ("Frasier"), "Back to You" stars Kelsey Grammer and Patricia Heaton as ex-lovers who reunite as co-anchors on a Pittsburgh newscast. The supporting cast includes Fred Willard and Josh Gad.

Burrows is expected to helm most of the first season's episodes. Last year he served similar duties on CBS' "The Class."

Burrows is one of the most successful and prolific sitcom directors in the business. His credits include a lengthy run as regular helmer on "Will & Grace," as well as multiple episodes of "Taxi," "Cheers" and "Frasier."
