ABC Cancels Sitcom ‘The Mayor’

Only 9 of the 13 Episodes Ordered Were Telecast

ABC has pulled the plug on freshman comedy “The Mayor” and will fill the Tuesday 9:30 p.m. ET half-hour (out of “black-ish”) for now with encore telecasts of “Modern Family.” Debuting on Oct. 3, 2017, “The Mayor” starred Brandon Micheal Hall as an aspiring rapper who unwittingly becomes the mayor of his hometown after running to gain publicity for his music. Lea Michelle, Yvette Nicole Brown, Bernard David Jones and Marcel Spears co-starred.

Only 9 of the 13 episodes of “The Mayor” have been telecast, and the producers intend to now shop the series to other networks (with Hulu suggested as a possibility).
