In the 1996-97 television season, they received their third consecutive Viewers for Quality Television (VQT) Award. In the 1995-96 season, they won their unprecedented third consecutive Television Critics Association Award and their third consecutive BANFF Television Festival Rockie Award, a feat never accomplished in the 17 year history of that television festival. The second season (1994-1995) brought yet another Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series, a Golden Globe, the Humanitas Prize and the prestigious Peabody. In its freshman season (1993-1994),
"Frasier" earned the producing trio an Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series, as well as an Emmy for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series for the pilot episode entitled "The Good Son," a People's Choice Award, a BANFF Award, a TCA Award and a Viewers for Quality Television (VQT) endorsement.

Casey, a San Francisco native, received his bachelor's degree in Broadcast Communication Arts from San Francisco State University in 1975. Shortly thereafter, he moved to Los Angeles, met Lee and they began writing as a team. After three and a half years of rejection they sold a script to "The Jeffersons" in 1978. He joined the staff of that series with his partner, Lee, in 1979. During their six-year tenure, they served as writers, story editors and finally, producers.

By 1985, Casey joined forces with David Angell and Daive Lee as "Cheers" supervising producers and writers. Since then, the trio has amassed 37 Emmy Award nominations and received 24 Emmy Awards, including the above mentioned for "Frasier", as well as an Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy for "Cheers," in 1989, which Angell, Casey, Lee and the series' other producers shared. After working together as producers on the hit comedy series "Cheers" for NBC-TV, Angell, Casey and Lee formed Grub Street Productions. In 1990, they created and executive produced the hit comedy series "Wings," which enjoyed much critical and ratings success during its seven season run.
