Spin City is a smart, sophisticated sitcom about the behind-the-scenes workings of a fictional NYC based City Hall. Workaholic Mike Flaherty (Fox) is the Deputy Mayor of New York City, serving as Mayor Randall Winston's (Bostwick) key strategist and much-needed handler. Mike runs the city with the help of his oddball staff: an anxious and insecure press secretary (Kind); a sexist, boorish chief of staff (Ruck); an impeccably groomed gay activist running minority affairs (Boatman); a sharp and efficient, man-crazy accountant (Britton); and an idealistic young speechwriter (Chaplin). Like Mike, they are all professionally capable but personally challenged.
Created by Gary David Goldberg and Bill Lawrence, executive produced by Michael J. Fox and Gary David Goldberg, and produced by UBU Productions in association with Dreamworks Television, Spin City debuted on ABC on September 17, 1996 and received extraordinary receptions from the critics and viewers. The series reunited Fox and Family Ties executive producer and creator Gary David Goldberg and proved that the magic of their creative partnership was enduring.
