A native of Rhode Island, Angell joined Cheers (1982) in 1983 as a staff writer; he'd been with Paramount Network Television ever since. Angell hooked up with Peter Casey and David Lee in 1985 and the trio became supervising producers on the hit comedy. Angell, Casey and Lee then formed Grub Street Prods., which created Wings (1990), the NBC comedy that spent seven years on the network. After Cheers ended its run in 1993, the trio were tapped to create and executive produce Frasier (1993). Angell won a total of six Emmy Awards for his work on Frasier and Cheers. Arguably his most memorable writing feat was the memorable episode that found Lilith discovering Frasier in bed with Rebecca. This episode had a dose of French farce that subsequently became the foundation for the show Frasier. Grub Street disbanded in the late '90s, but Angell and Casey were developing new projects together. On September 11, 2001, David Angell and his wife Lynn were aboard one of the two planes under terrorist control that crashed into the World Trade Center towers, causing them to collapse.
