What is Mr Mayor about?
Mr Mayor comes from 30 Rock and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt creators Tina Fey and Robert Carlock.
The series follows the life of Neil Bremer (played by Ted Danson), a retired wealthy businessman who attempts to run for the mayor of LA elections.
However, things do not go to plan, thanks to his rebellious teenage daughter Orly (Kyla Kenedy).
The synopsis for the series reads: “Mr Mayor follows a retired businessman (Ted Danson) who runs for mayor of Los Angeles to prove he’s ‘still got it.’
“Once he wins, he has to figure out what he stands for, gain the respect of his biggest critic (Holly Hunter) and connect with his teenage daughter, all while trying to get anything right for America’s second weirdest city.”
Originally, Mr Mayor was supposed to be a spin-off of 30 Rock, starring Alec Baldwin in his role of Jack Donaghy.
After Baldwin dropped out of the project, he was replaced by Danson and the series was rewritten to take place in the actor’s hometown of Los Angeles.
