via press release:
Mayor Tom Kane (Kelsey Grammer) demands absolute loyalty from all who serve him, and he will stop at nothing in his pursuit of command over the city of Chicago. Those who betray him will suffer until their devotion returns and they once again feed his power. He stands, proud and determined as ever, in the center of a gallery where those who must atone are literally and figuratively suspended. In Kane’s world you either show blind allegiance like cattle or become just another piece of meat for the machine.
Kelsey Grammer returns for Season Two of the STARZ Original Series “Boss,” as Chicago Mayor Tom Kane, the role in which he won a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor In A Television Series – Drama. This season, Kane ferociously beats back the physical symptoms of his illness with high doses of medication. But this comes at a cost — experiencing heightened psychological manifestations of the disease. Without his longtime advisors Ezra Stone (Martin Donovan) and Kitty O’Neil (Kathleen Robertson), Kane is also forced to reconfigure his inner circle. Surrounded by strangers and without much time left, he acts quickly to protect and repair his legacy by cutting out the cancers within the political machine. But as corrupt heads roll and his list of enemies grows, Kane’s virtuous actions begin to erode the very foundation of power he’s worked a lifetime to build. In order to maintain it, Kane must govern as he always has—ruthlessly.
