News   THE SCREENING ROOM: Preview the Second Season of "Boss," With Kelsey Grammer and Jonathan Groff (Video) The Golden Globe-nominated series "Boss," which stars Tony nominee and Golden Globe winner Kelsey Grammer as fictional Chicago Mayor Tom Kane, will return to Starz for a second season Aug. 17 at 10 PM ET.

Here is a first look at the upcoming season, which will also feature stage and screen actors Jonathan Groff (Spring Awakening, "Glee") as Ian Todd, an ambitious young advisor to Kane, and Sanaa Lathan ("Nip/Tuck," A Raisin in the Sun), Alderman Ross' strong-willed and politically savvy Chief of Staff. In season two of "Boss," according to production notes, "Kane ferociously beats back the physical symptoms of his illness with high doses of medication. But this comes at a cost -- experiencing heightened psychological manifestations of the disease. Without his longtime advisors Stone and Kitty, Kane is also forced to reconfigure his inner circle. Surrounded by strangers and without much time left, he acts quickly to protect and repair his legacy by cutting out the cancers within the political machine. But as corrupt heads roll and his list of enemies grows, Kane's virtuous actions begin to erode the very foundation of power he's worked a lifetime to build. In order to maintain it, Kane must govern as he always has—ruthlessly."
