Read Jane Espenson's spec script for 'Frasier'. There's a new site called "Showrunners: Show Us Your Specs" dedicated to showing "early stabs at TV writing by some of today's top showrunners". Jane's script from 1994 is one of the first offerings.

Wow this is truly one of the best finds on Whedonesque.
Oddly, I was wondering why there wasn't already a website like this in existence just a few weeks ago. Glad to see it does exist!
Great find! I'm a huge fan of Frasier so I'm looking forward to reading this.
Awesome, I'm also gonna read this, "Frasier" is my favorite sitcom.
Just read it. She's right the Frasier/Roz stuff is pretty weak/off, but she definitely showed mastery of the show's brand of little intellectual jokes throughout (of course that's where she would shine). Really simple episode, and pretty anti-climactic but you can see it being a real one.
That was rather delightful. Laughed out loud more than once.
Amazing. I have always wanted something like this, and kicking it off with Jane ain't a bad way to start, not at all.
It's below Jane's current par in some ways, but I love the fact that it uses punctuation as the jumping-off point for the story, and it has real things to say about Frasier as well as (implicitly) gesturing toward some of the class/status issues regarding the radio show. So yeah, nice.
