Trailer | Boss

Starz just premiered the trailer for their new Fall 2011 show “Boss” starring Kelsey Grammer as the Mayor of Chicago. Boss is being filmed here in Chicago @ Cinespace Studios on the West Side. The trailer doesn’t tell us much about the series or the story, but it does set-up Grammer as a tough as nails politician.

Here is Starz official synopsis of the show……

“Ruthless politician Mayor Tom Kane (Grammer) sits like a spider at the center of Chicago’s web of power. But underneath it all, Kane hides a crushing secret. His trusted advisors Kitty O’Neill (Roberston) and Ezra Stone (Donovan) know better than to ask questions. Kane’s wife Meredith (Nielsen) knows nothing. Only Emma (Hannah Ware), Kane’s estranged daughter, has a chance of uncovering the truth. This is going to be the toughest term yet for the Boss.”

Boss Premieres October 21st.
