EXCLUSIVE: Starz Sets Premiere Date for Kelsey Grammer Drama 'Boss'

Kelsey Grammer played a comedic character for a long time on 'Cheers' and 'Frasier,' but this fall, he'll return to television as a complicated, driven Chicago mayor in Starz's new drama 'Boss.'

Along with our partners at Huffington Post, we can exclusively reveal that 'Boss' will debut at 10PM ET on Oct. 21.

We've also got an exclusive first look at the teaser poster for the show and a video clip for the drama, which also stars Martin Donovan, Kathleen Roberston and Connie Nielsen.

Here's Starz's description of 'Boss': "Ruthless politician Mayor Tom Kane (Grammer) sits like a spider at the center of Chicago's web of power. But underneath it all, Kane hides a crushing secret. His trusted advisors Kitty O'Neill (Roberston) and Ezra Stone (Donovan) know better than to ask questions. Kane's wife Meredith (Nielsen) knows nothing. Only Emma (Hannah Ware), Kane's estranged daughter, has a chance of uncovering the truth. This is going to be the toughest term yet for the Boss."

The show began production in April, and the pilot for 'Boss' was directed by Gus Van Sant. Here's the first look at Grammer in the role:

After what Kelsey Grammar did to his wife and children, I'd never watch another thing in which he was on. Whether you like Camille Grammar or not, what he did is inexcusable.

As intriguing as the synopsis sounds. I still hold on to hope that Shawn Ryan can get his Ambitious show the Chicago Code picked up on another network.
