ABC Is Developing a Drama About Oakland City Hall

Oh, boy. Per Deadline.com (and others), ABC is working on a new TV show, written by former The Newsroom writer Gideon Yago and creatively titled City Hall , that will follow a (presumably fictional) mayor of Oakland and her "irreverent" crew of young City Hall staffers who "take on the political and social establishment of a city in crisis while trying to maintain their own personal and social lives." Sounds spicy! The show will be a drama, which should be unsurprising to any Oaklander (ZING!!) and is being described as a cross between St. Elmo's Fire and The West Wing. That's about all we know for now — and, NB, a show being developed doesn't necessarily mean it'll ever see the light of day — but stay tuned.* (And feel free to go buck-wild with casting suggestions in the comments!)
