Channel 4 have secured the rights to Kelsey Grammer's US show Boss. Boss will air on More4 in 2013. Boss unlike Nashville which has also been acquired by Channel 4 is not a brand new show and season 1 secured Grammer his first Golden Globe for Best Actor earlier this year. Boss was created by Farhad Safinia who also serves as an executive producer along side Kelsey Grammer, Gus Van Sant, Richard Levine, Lyn Green, Brian Sher and Stella Stopler.

Airing on US cable network Starz, Boss stars Kelsey Grammer (Fraiser, Cheers) as Mayor Tom Kane who sits like a spider at the centre of Chicago's web of power; a web built on a covenant with the people. They want to be led, they want disputes settled, jobs dispensed, and loyalties rewarded. If he achieves through deception and troubling morality, so be it. As long as he gets the job done, they look the other way.
Yet despite being the most effective mayor in recent history, a degenerative brain disorder is ripping everything away from him. He can't trust his memory, his closest allies, or even himself.
Kane's wife Meredith (Connie Nielsen) knows nothing. Theirs is a marriage of convenience. Kitty O'Neil (Kathleen Robertson), Kane's advisor, has her suspicions but stays silent. And Kane's political advisor Ezra Stone (Martin Donovan), a Yale graduate with a rough edge, remains question-less.
Only Emma (Hannah Ware), Kane's estranged daughter, has a chance of learning his secret. This is going to be the toughest term yet for the Boss.

Boss coming to More4 in 2013

Boss season 2 finnished its 10 episode run with "True Enough" on Friday 19th October on Starz in the US. However due to low ratings it looks unlikely that Boss will return. However there has been no official confirmation.

Will you be watching Boss on More4 in 2013? It looks like a great addition to More4's catalogue of US shows. Why not check out the featuretter below and see if it is your cup of tea.
