TV show description:
From creator Jeremy Bronson, The Mayor TV show centers on struggling hip-hot artist, Courtney Rose (Hall). After years of drudgery in the closet of his small apartment, he decides he needs a publicity stunt to create some buzz around his fledgling music career.
Courtney decides to run for mayor of this hometown, Fort Grey, California. The plan is brilliant, until the voters, who are drawn to his natural charm and candor, actually elect him.
Despite being a neophyte, Courtney has a certain knack for politics. While his intelligence and creativity lend themselves well to his new position, this is his first full-time occupation, so he needs a little help growing into the role.
Luckily, his mother, Dina Rose (Brown), is at the ready to watch over Courtney and his new administration. While she’s crazy about her son and believes in him, she does not hesitate to tell it like it is.
Dina also serves as a mother of sorts to T.K. Clifton (Spears) and Jermaine Leforge (Jones). Although they’re great friends to Courtney, they do not appear particularly suited to serving in his administration.
Finally, there is Valentina Barella (Michele). Valentina originally managed the campaign of losing candidate, Ed Gunt (David Spade). Upon realizing though, that Courtney sincerely wants to make a difference in Fort Grey, she signs on as his Chief of Staff. Valentina plays things by the book and expects no less than perfection.
Motley though it may be, Courtney has surrounded himself with a crew that truly wants him to succeed. Now it is up to him to accept the responsibilities of his office and faithfully execute them.
Episode #13 — Death of a Councilman
When a councilman dies, Courtney convinces TK to run for the position. When he learns that Dina is also running, he can’t decide who to endorse.
First aired: January 25, 2018 (released on Hulu).
