The line-up of new shows for the 2020-2021 television season isn’t much to write home about thanks to the coronavirus pandemic wreaking havoc on television production workflow. But there is one new show that we’re keeping our fingers crossed for since it hails from 30 Rock creators Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, and the first trailer for it has finally arrived.
Mr. Mayor follows Ted Danson as he tries to win over the people of Los Angeles as the city’s new mayor. But he faces some pretty stiff opposition in the form of Holly Hunter, who seems to have nothing but contempt and scorn for his election. Watch the Mr. Mayor trailer below for a peek at the series.

UPDATE: Saturday Night Live veteran and A.P. Bio co-star Paula Pell has also been added to the series. We’ve added details of her role in our original story from October 5 below.
If you haven’t been compelled to sign up for Peacock yet, their line-up of original programming might change your mind.

The series is called Girls5eva, and the cast of female leads is pretty enticing.
When Girls5eva was announced back in August, it already had Grammy winner, Emmy nominee and Broadway star Sara Bareilles attached, along with Tony-winning Hamilton star Renée Elise Goldsberry. Now the series has added Cougar Town and Vice Principals star Busy Philipps and comedian Paula Pell to the mix. Read More »
