So who came up with idea for the Wings TV show?

Wings has occasionally been referred to as a Cheers knockoff and there is a very obvious reason for this. The show was the brainchild of Cheers veterans David Angell, Peter Casey, and David Lee. The trio would also launch the popular show Frasier (a spinoff from Cheers) in 1992.

They would combine for 37 Emmy Nominations and receive 24 awards for their work. Shockingly they would not receive a single Emmy Nomination for their brilliant work with the underrated TV series Wings. David Angell along with his wife Lynn tragically died while aboard United Airlines Flight 11 which was the first plane to strike the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

My name is Scott Denham and this is my first attempt at putting a website together. I was born and raised in Alabama and I'm a big college football fan. Roll Tide! I have always made a good working mans salary doing direct sales while using my commercial driver's license. However, in February of 2018, I suffered a terrible broken ankle injury at work that required multiple surgeries to repair. I decided to learn how to use Wordpress as a way to keep busy while going through my rehabilitation. Thanks for visiting and please don't be a stranger:)
