The Golden Globe® nominated drama series BOSS returns for a second season to HBO / HBO HD on Monday, March 11 at 10pm, with subsequent episodes airing at the same time weekly. Starring Kelsey Grammer in his Golden Globe®- winning role as fictional Chicago Mayor Tom Kane, the series also stars Connie Nielsen, Hannah Ware, Jeff Hephner, Kathleen Robertson, Troy Garity and Rotimi.

In this ten-episode second season, Kane ferociously beats back the physical symptoms of his illness with high doses of medication.  But this comes at a cost -- experiencing heightened psychological manifestations of the disease. Without his longtime advisors Stone and Kitty, Kane is now forced to reconfigure his inner circle. Surrounded by strangers and without much time left, he acts quickly to protect and repair his legacy by cutting out the cancers within the political machine.  But as corrupt heads roll and his list of enemies grows, Kane's virtuous actions begin to erode the very foundation of power he has worked a lifetime to build. In order to maintain it, Kane must govern it ruthlessly as he always has.

Joining the ensemble cast as series regulars are Jonathan Groff as Ian Todd, a smart and ambitious young advisor to Kane; Sanaa Lathan as Alderman William Ross’ strong-willed and politically savvy Chief of Staff, Mona Fredricks. Tip Harris, internationally-known as rapper T.I. will be guest-starring as Trey Rogers, a former gangbanger with designs on a career in City Hall.  Additional guest stars include Amy Morton as State Senator Catherine Walsh, who has been defeated in her bid for Governor three times, but is now determined win.

Dee Johnson served as executive producer this time around alongside series creator Farhad Safinia, Kelsey Grammer, Gus Van Sant, Brian Sher and Stella Bulochnikov. 

Catch the premiere of this second season of BOSS on Monday, March 11 at 10pm on HBO and HBO HD.
