The Mayor is a sweet show, one that takes an on-the-nose concept-someone runs for public office in order to be famous, but then actually wins-and imbues it with so much heart and humor.
The premise is strong. The cast is good. If only it were funnier. Because the first episode isn't as funny as it should be.
Producers Jeremy Bronson (Speechless) and Hamilton alum Daveed Diggs have done the impossible: created an entirely un-cynical political parody.
It's practically begging to be the heir to the Modern Family throne: earnest, family-friendly, smart. (Sleep with one eye open, The Goldbergs.) It's even more sincere than Speechless, and almost as political as black-ish.
