Plot Synopsis

THE MAYOR is a half-hour comedy series that centers on a young rapper, Courtney Rose, who 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 (Fort Grey, 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. Courtney's charisma and outspoken optimism are what helped him get elected as the Mayor, but even though he's an outsider when it comes to politics, he will find that he's actually good at it. Courtney has smarts, swagger and creativity, but has never worked a full-time job in his life. Luckily for him, he has the right people around him to shepherd his growth, both as a person and a politician. His biggest fan is his mom, Dina, who will be there to keep a watchful eye on him and his administration, and is always ready to set him straight if need be. She's a loving mother not only to Courtney but to his best friends as well. His questionably qualified buddies -- Jermaine Leforge, the smooth operator; and T.K Clifton, the sensitive sweetheart -- serve as his two unconventional political aides. Valentina Barella initially was the campaign manager for the losing mayoral candidate, Ed Gunt, but changes sides and offers to join Courtney as his chief of staff when she realizes he truly wants to make a difference in his community. Valentina's no-nonsense, straight-laced ways assure him that things will turn out for the best, because she will not settle for anything less than perfect.
On Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at 9:30pm ET/PT, ABC premiered "Grey Christmas," the mid-season finale of THE MAYOR. After visiting a homeless shelter on Christmas Eve, Courtney realizes things for the needy could be improved and pledges to make it a joyous Christmas that every family deserves. But when he learns he doesn't have the budget to deliver on his promise, Courtney loses hope and his holiday spirit which leads to a magical "It's A Wonderful Life" moment that makes him realize he has the gift needed to pull off a Christmas miracle
