This is an
really bizarre inneresting combination.
Starz has greenlit a political drama, Boss, starring Kelsey Grammer, written by the Apocalypto co-writer Farhad Safinia, and executive produced by Gus Van Sant, who's also set to direct the pilot episode.
We wonder what kind of political drama you get when you combine people associated with Frasier, Mel Gibson's Mayan movie, and a film about Gay Rights activist Harvey Milk.
Should be inneresting indeed!
Grammer will star as as the Mayor of Chicago, who gets diagnosed with a degenerative medical condition, but doesn't tell anybody.
The show is being described as "a King Lear-inspired tale of power set in Chicago's political machine."
Boss was sought after by several cable networks, but Starz eventually won the bidding war after making an offer for an 8-episode series order.
We'll be very curious to check out this show. Quite the eclectic team behind it!
Will U watch Frasier go political on Starz?
