‘boss’ trailer: kelsey grammer as the mayor of chicago

Most of Kelsey Grammer’s finest post-Frasier work has been done behind the scenes (directing, producing, writing, etc.). Boss takes Grammer to a darker place than the smart humor of his well-known roles (Example A: The Poster Art). He plays Tom Kane, mayor of Chicago, who is hiding a severe neurological disorder from everyone for the betterment of his political career. I think some level of corruption amidst all of that is to be expected.

There hasn’t been much publicity for the show as of yet and the premise doesn’t sound terribly exciting. However, the trailer is what sold me on giving Boss my minimum two episode viewing for new shows that peak my interest. Well that, as well as Kathleen Robertson (Clare Arnold, B.H. 90210) and Connie Nielsen (The Devil’s Advocate).

The show premieres on Oct. 21, but will Starz have another Spartacus-esque hit on its hands or will Boss go the way of Gravity and fade quietly into oblivion?
