The Starz television series ‘Boss” is shooting in Evanston today at the Music Institute of Chicago, according to an extra interviewed at the scene.

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.
