Less than a year after The Good Place wrapped on NBC earlier this year, Ted Danson is already starring in a new series for the network.
Today, Mr. Mayor – the new series created by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock and starring Danson- finally set a premiere date of January 7th, 2021. You might remember this series as the one that Fey envisioned as a 30 Rock spin-off with Alec Baldwin returning as Jack Donaghy. However, he wound up leaving the project.
Replacing Baldwin as the show’s lead is Ted Danson. The series follows Danson as a wealthy businessman running for mayor of Los Angeles for questionable reasons. Upon wining, he then has to re-determine everything he ran for. And rounding out the all star cast is Holly Hunter, Kyla Kenedy, Vella Lovell, Bobby Moynihan, and Mike Cabellon.
Mr. Mayor premieres January 7th at 8pm ET on NBC.
