Skype Q&A with Cast Members Brandon Micheal Hall & Yvette Nicole Brown!
Young rapper Courtney Rose (Brandon Micheal Hall) needs his big break. For years he’s toiled away in a small inner-city apartment, making music in his junk-filled bedroom closet. Tired of waiting for opportunity, Courtney cooks up the publicity stunt of the century – running for mayor of his hometown in California to generate buzz for his music career. Unfortunately for Courtney, his master plan goes wildly awry, ending in the most terrifying of outcomes: an election victory. With the help of his mother (Yvette Nicole Brown, Community) and friends, including Valentina (Glee’s Lea Michele), Courtney will have to overcome his hubris if he wants to transform the struggling city he loves.
From executive producer Daveed Diggs (Tony winner for Broadway’s Hamilton), James Griffiths, writer/executive producer Jeremy Bronson (Speechless, The Mindy Project, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon) and executive producer Jamie Tarses (Happy Endings), the series is from ABC Studios
