Starz Renews Kelsey Grammer's 'Boss' Ahead of Drama's Premiere
Starz Entertainment has ordered a 10-episode second season prior to its Oct. 21 premiere.
Kelsey Grammer's Boss won't premiere until Oct. 21, but Starz Entertainment has already ordered a 10-episode second season.
The Lionsgate Television-produced series, which will kick off with eight episodes, centers on Chicago Mayor Tom Kane (Grammer), who holds sway over just about everything in his city. When faced with a terrible secret that threatens to topple his power, his true character is revealed: it's not power that drives Tom Kane, but his fear of losing it.
“The first time we read Farhad [Safinia’s] script, we knew we had to make Boss,’” Starz President Chris Albrecht said in a statement. “With each episode, the story grew richer, and the cast continued to turn in breakthrough performances... For our viewers, we felt it important to start working on the next season as soon as possible.”
Added Lionsgate Television Group president Kevin Beggs, “This early vote of confidence from our partners at Starz is extremely gratifying and reflects the tremendous work of all those involved with Boss on both sides of the camera. Kelsey’s dramatic turn in this series is a powerful and radical departure from his previous television roles and we can’t wait for viewers to be drawn into his fascinating world.”
Production of the drama's second season is set to begin in early 2012.
