Ted Danson quote from an interview excerpt
The show is about the Mayor of Los Angeles who I play. I have a 15-16-year-old daughter who is upset with me because I decided to prove to myself that I still have something left and I ran for the Mayor during a special election. I am a billionaire. You open with Day 1 at his first press conference and we are off and running.

Below are quotes from Executive Producers Tina Fey and Robert Carlock
Tina Fey quote from an interview excerpt
The show is about a man named Neil Bremer played by Ted Danson who is happily retired but kind of realizes that he might need a third act in his life and run for mayor of Los Angeles just to kind of prove to his teenage daughter that he has something to contribute to the world. This is definitely not a show about politics. It is a show about people, it’s about relationships within the workplace and also about parenting and how scared you can be about your teenager.
Robert Carlock quote from an interview excerpts
Neil Bremer got to a point in his life where he has achieved a certain amount of success and he thinks he is satisfied and done and realizing maybe that he wants one more bite at the apple
