'Frasier' star Kelsey Grammer has managed to halt production on MTV's World Wrestling Entertainment series 'Tough Enough' in Malibu, California Variety reports.
Grammer and his neighbors in Malibu's Broad Beach objected to MTV's request to tape the reality show at a home in the neighborhood this summer for 60 days.
Concerned about potential disruptions in the quiet neighborhood, the group took their complaints to the Malibu City Council, which voted 5-0 to enforce a municipal code that restricts filming to 14 days.
"After some very unconvincing assurances that our privacy would be respected, we took this action," Grammer said. WWE spokesman Jason Bernstein said the production had already spent somewhere in the low six figures on pre-production at the house and had pushed production back two weeks to avoid the July 4 weekend.
MTV and WWE won't be able to recoup those costs and may have to delay production further as the companies look for a new home for "Tough Enough," which is entering its third season.
