If your employer. Once you factor in this negotiation. -- show up for work. Otherwise it may be time for the black caucus. Find new leadership. That is just tiny snippet from the season two premiere episode of boss Kelsey Grammer. Gets the job done as Tom -- a ruthless mayor of Chicago who's just. Try to keep a major secret about his health in order to carve out his legacy -- it's a dramatic it's a dark role at the far departure from the role. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Obviously we had -- back -- on the staff and also we had a revelation that you have a major health issue that you're dealing with a degenerative. Disease. And that is -- they try to keep under wraps and trying to create what kind of image you're gonna portrait of the public what can you still for secrets for season two. Well there's. There's more same in terms of that and terrorism him come to terms of his disease and also. QB and a guarded secret from from the general population. Some of the things that some things that occur in the first five episodes of the second season -- -- driven by. An advancing. Series of events that take him to the ideas -- he must address disease. So let's but then that that -- which is climax in the fifth and so basically he knew he needs to do something about so. The second half of season deals with a -- that is loans along with some political. Hurdles and some things yes dressed as well in terms of his office in the city of Chicago. You're the executive producer on the show as well then I mean you really have your hands in kind of every aspect yes I am do you ever since you have and I don't -- -- have a derogatory way did you ever -- the fact that. You might be addressed in one area more carefully than others is it ever concerned that you're spreading it to you know you always think about it army -- To balance the idea being a producer and a performer in the same. Peace. Are most concerned and I'm sacrificing my abilities just -- the performance right that's that's the thing -- get most concerned about. I have to make sure that there's somebody with a set of eyes that can say. Paula back or let's go here or try this tone. And I have that in a couple of people that are on the set the only human to everybody because you know but -- got an opinion and -- -- good. They're good at what they're doing though right the the other value -- -- you can shape the performance knowing that you know -- we have laid out. -- In in in collaboration with four Palestinians and and Dean Johnson. This. Idea of where the show should go and how it should hand in hand all -- requires five or six seasons to do -- equipment. -- -- only minor required television doesn't really play out that way right out of season the season so we don't know exactly how to tell the story until we get the order. To do the next one. And so that that's been -- thing as an executive producer but. We're just -- we get the chance if if we have an opportunity and and we know that we'll get six at some point. It would be really fun to just carve -- the whole story arc. From beginning Brian it was it would be really wonderful television I think but. Because our our hope is that you basically -- six. Acts right -- -- classic tragedy writes the bases in play that just plays -- longer and that each of them is unique and so that television shows you know once -- -- formula that works tend to stay that way. My definition because of nuances in advancing stages of this -- disease. Physical -- -- nation. And mental acuity. Half to deteriorate. And -- shift. And so something has to happen. So that's in it be fun to see if we get a chance so from Tom -- To doctor Frasier crane -- the sideshow Bob -- your characters have such a level of debt multi layers. What do you suppose doctor crane would think of Tom K. If he came in the I think he would be I think would have Myron okay. He's a tenacious guy -- -- I mean he's he's tenacious to the point of you know where most people just -- Honesty I think I -- that tenacious but I don't find the same way -- Tompkins first instinct for which I really admire that and I wish I had more of that myself. It's one thing I envy about him has the character changed you and I know now -- know -- still. At the at the end of -- definitely ended -- -- at the end of the day. Your wife both the shot all -- -- no no question that's clearly the way it is that's what -- clear the -- -- that I think she probably wouldn't she would. Easily highly keepers say that's what right and a big congratulations to you from for your new daughter this summer in growing up right before your eyes it's really it's fantastic that is faith loses. Extraordinary young person. Notes is very -- -- -- right now but.
