Mr. Mayor, the new comedy from 30 Rock creators Tina Fey and Robert Carlock sees Ted Danson playing a billionaire businessman who runs for mayor in a failed attempt to impress his teenage daughter, only to end up winning.
So now he has to deal with actually running Los Angeles with a deputy mayor (Holly Hunter) who hates him and a staffer (Bobby Moynihan) who mistakes his daughter for his wife. This all leads to moments like the one in the show's just-released new trailer (above), where he cuts the ribbon on LA's 10,000th marijuana dispensary and encourages his constituents to "go buy drugs now!"
Mr. Mayor premieres Thursday, January 7, at 8:00 PM ET on NBC.
