Lewy body dementia (LBD) is a common (but little-known) disease ready-made for a television drama. From psychiatric symptoms like vivid hallucinations to unpredicatable changes in alertness and mental abilities, LBD nearly defies description.
And who better to play a character with such a devastiating diagnosis as Kelsey Grammer! The opening scene includes a bleak description of the relentless progression of LBD, and from the moment of diagnosis, Grammer's face portrays the devastating loss of a man learning his life will be slowly stolen away.
