Dean Carter is a main character in the Frasier-based fan fiction spin-off MCTV.
Business executive Dean joins MCTV at the start of Season 1, tasked with handling the day-to-day legalities. He strikes up a friendship with June Archer, and an attraction blossoms between them towards the end of the season. After a brief fling, Dean parts ways with June and is quick to move on in his romantic endeavours. He is ultimately drawn back to June and proposes to her early in Season 3 following a series of hurdles. They marry in the season finale, but the spark between them quickly dissipates throughout Season 4, culminating in Dean and June's divorce. Dean returns for two guest appearances in Season 5 after discovering June is pregnant with his child, promising to be a part of the baby's life. In Season 6, it is mentioned Dean has been granted full custody of their daughter. He makes an additional appearance later in the season when the Carters are considered by Maris for a trashy reality series about showbiz families.
