‘Mayor’ elects Calandra

Exec producer o'sees show where teen wins election

Scribe-producer Vince Calandra (“Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place”) has been elected as showrunner for the upcoming WB laffer “The Mayor.”

Calandra will serve as an executive producer on the laffer, which comes from Sony Pictures Television and Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison shingle. As part of his pact with Sony, Calandra also has an option to develop other projects at the studio.

WB ordered six episodes of “The Mayor” for midseason.

The laffer revolves around an 18-year-old (played by Ben Feldman) who wins enough votes to take over the mayor’s job in a small town. Sandler will also exec produce, along with Doug Robinson, Jack Giarraputo and Adam Resnick, who wrote the pilot.

Calandra, who’s repped by Endeavor, most recently developed a project at NBC through NBC Studios and 3 Sisters Entertainment. He also co-exec produced the WB comedy “My Guide to Becoming a Rock Star.”

Scribe wrote a number of episodes of “Two Guys,” joining the show in its first season. His other credits include the HBO comedy “The High Life,” ABC’s “She TV” and CBS’ early ’90s “Carol Burnett Show” revival.

Calandra has also written for a number of hit animated Nickelodeon shows, such as “Ren & Stimpy,” “Hey Arnold!” and “Rocko’s Modern Life.”
