What happens when someone runs for public office as a publicity stunt and accidentally gets elected? You'll find out in... real life, but also in THE MAYOR, a short-lived sitcom starring Brandon Micheal Hall as a young hip hop artist who gets a crash course in civics when he ends up running a whole town all by himself... as well as his best friends, GLEE's Lea Michele, COMMUNITY's Yvette Nicole Brown, and David Spade (of David Spade fame).
THE MAYOR was timely, maybe to a fault, but was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold explore a show that is atypically positive about politics, and why that makes for a good sitcom but may have been exactly the opposite of what audiences were interested in. It's the last episode of our SUDDENLY, LAST SEASON theme month, and it was selected by our Patrons!
