The show, now shooting its second season, tells the story of a fictional Chicago mayor, Tom Kane, played by Kelsey Grammer, who's trying to conceal his degenerative neurological disease from his political foes.

Grammer won a Golden Globe as best actor for his performance in season one.

No word on how long filming will continue here — but it's made parking tight this morning for people who usually patronize the Church Street garage.
