The first episode begins with a young rapper trying to get his music out to a wider audience so he enlisted to run as mayor. It’s a stunt that he doesn’t expect to work, however it turns out his experience living in the city has given him a perspective that the voters liked and much to his surprise, he gets elected as mayor!
So now, he has to figure out how to be a good mayor. The chemistry between Brandon Micheal Hall and Lea Michele works well and keeps the show interesting and engaging, despite the odd premise. I don’t know if the show will last, but for now it’s good for some laughs.
I watched an early premiere, so you can still catch the first episode on October 3rd on ABC.
