Summary: A talented cast provide a sophisticated ensemble comedy, filmed entirely in New York City. Michael Flaherty (Michael J. Fox, Back To The Future), Deputy Mayor and right-hand man to Mayor Randall Winston (Barry Bostwick, I'll Take Manhattan), expertly keeps his co-workers and City Hall under complete control while his personal life often spins completely out of control. With a staff of wildly diverse characters consisting of a neurotic press secretary, a gay activist in charge of minority affairs, a chauvinist chief of staff, a highly efficient accountant, an idealistic speechwriter and an intrepid Mayor's assistant, it's hard to believe anything gets done. After four successful, and hilarious, years, Michael J. Fox left Spin City. And was replaced by Charlie Sheen who played Charlie Crawford (Charlie Sheen, Two and a Half Men), the new, charismatic deputy mayor of New York City. The show's final season was simulcast in HDTV.
