Oakland To Be Locale Of TV Political Series

The ABC political drama 'City Hall' is being billed as a municipal version of 'West Wing'

Oakland To Be Locale Of TV Political Series

 

Have municipal politics gotten sexy?

That's what television producers must have believed when they picked Oakland as the inspiration for "City Hall" the forthcoming ABC political drama.

According to a report in Deadline Hollywood, the show "follows the mayor of Oakland and her irreverent City Hall staff of twenty- and thirty-somethings who take on the political and social establishment of a city in crisis while trying to maintain their own personal and social lives."

That makes "City Hall" sound more like the self-conscious " West Wing" than the self-mocking " Parks and Recreation."

What would be the plot line, title and ethos of a TV series set in San Leandro?
