By: Jaclyn Cascio (@jaclynator)

Are you ready for a sitcom with heart and hope? This fall, ABC has a surprisingly smart show that just might fit the bill! Get a glimpse of what to expect from ABC’s new show, The Mayor, right here!

Created by Jeremy Bronson (The Mindy Project), The Mayor was ordered to series this May. The executive producer list for the show includes Bronson, Dylan Clark, Al Jean, Mike Reiss, Scott Stuber, Jamie Tarses (Happy Endings), James Griffiths (also the show’s pilot episode director) and Hamilton’s brilliant Daveed Diggs.

The 30-minute long episodes will tell the story of 27-year-old rapper Courtney Rose (Brandon Micheal Hall). Working tirelessly for years on his music while living in a small, inner city apartment with his mother Dina (Yvette Nicole Brown), Courtney has been hoping for a big break that looked like it would never come. In a publicity stunt to get exposure, Courtney decides to run for mayor of his hometown – Fort Grey, California. What he doesn’t plan for is a victory! The aspiring rapper is elected mayor, and with help from his friends Valentina Barella (Lea Michele), Jermaine Leforget (Bernard David Jones), and T.K. Carter (Marcel Spears), he might have found his path in a new way, with the opportunity to transform the city he loves into something great!

The premise of The Mayor sounds a little eccentric, but get a glimpse at the trailer for the series and see if it doesn’t hit you right in the feels!

Surprisingly uplifting, The Mayor promises to bring something new to the table. In today’s political climate, the new ABC show might be just the thing to give viewers a smile and a motivating message. What do you think? Is The Mayor on the wrong side of crazy or does it look like a show to add to the fall watch list?

The Mayor is slated to air on ABC this fall on Tuesday nights at 9:30 p.m.
