Hunter, who recently starred in Succession, will portray Arpi, a long-time liberal councilwoman
Oscar-winner Holly Hunter will star opposite actor Ted Danson in NBC's new comedy series, created by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock.
The story is about a wealthy businessman (Ted Danson) who runs for mayor of Los Angeles for all the wrong reasons. Once he wins he has to figure out what he stands for, gain the respect of his staff, and connect with his teenage daughter, all while controlling the coyote population.
Hunter, who recently starred in Succession, will portray Arpi, a long-time liberal councilwoman. Having dedicated her life to the betterment of Los Angeles, she makes no secret of her disdain for the newly elected Mayor Bremer.
The show will also feature Bobby Moynihan, who will essay the role of Jayden, the interim director of communications in the newly elected mayor's office.
Fey and Carlock will also executive produce the show alongside Jeff Richmond and David Miner. Universal Television, Bevel Gears, and 3 Arts will produce.
