Kane canned by US network bosses
cable channel Starz won’t give Kelsey Grammer (pictured) another term as Mayor of Chicago. It has cancelled the drama Boss after two seasons. The show premiered to critical acclaim, starring Grammer as tyrannical Chicago Mayor Tom Kane. The role earned Grammer a Golden Globe for best actor in a drama this year. Starz says the network is proud of the show but has ‘‘made the difficult decision to not proceed’’. Boss also stars Hill Street Blues’ Daniel J. Travanti, Martin Donovan and Connie Nielsen, who rose to fame in Gladiator. Farhad Safinia is executive producer.
