(from ABC's press release, March 2016) Meet Mary Wolf (Casey Wilson), the charismatic and charming Mayor of Bottom Heights. Mary's mother died in childbirth and her last words were, "Tell Mary she can do anything". . .and throughout Mary's life she has taken that mantra to heart. Though she has made some questionable life choices, like sleeping with a married man and making deals with the Canadian Mafia, Mary is currently following in her father's footsteps as Mayor and trying to keep the town's bankruptcy at bay. Even though Mary has a natural ability to make people feel confident and optimistic, she is nearing the end of her rope with the good folks of Bottom Heights. As her father lies on his deathbed, Mary vows to save their town by any means necessary. Unfortunately, her conspiracy theorist brother, Christopher, and flakey sister Janice aren't much help when it comes to saving their father or the town. With few options in front of her, Mary needs a miracle fast. . .so, she fakes one. No one could be more surprised than Mary when real miracles actually begin to happen.
