Starz to relaunch ‘Boss’ on Aug. 17

Lionsgate series stars Grammer as Chicago mayor

Starz will bow the second season of original series “Boss” on Aug. 17.

Skein stars Kelsey Grammer as a Machiavellian Chicago mayor hiding a deteriorating mental condition. Role earned Grammer a Golden Globe nom and some were surprised he was passed during last month’s Emmy nods.

Pay cabler gave the Lionsgate-produced series an early second season renewal, long before it saw ratings fall as the first season moved along.

Co-stars include Connie Nielsen, Hannah Ware and Jeff Hephner. Exec producer are Grammer, creator Farhad Safinia, Gus Van Sant, Brian Sher, Stella Bulochnikov and Dee Jonson.
