STARZ ORIGINAL SERIES "BOSS" TO LAUNCH SECOND SEASON FRIDAY, AUGUST 17TH AT 10PM ET/PT

JONATHAN GROFF, SANAA LATHAN AND SPECIAL GUEST STAR TIP HARRIS (T.I.) JOIN CAST LED BY GOLDEN GLOBE(R) WINNER KELSEY GRAMMER

Beverly Hills, CA. - April 11th - The STARZ Original Series "Boss" is set to premiere its second season on Friday, August 17th at 10pm ET/PT. Starring Kelsey Grammer in his Golden Globe(R)- winning role as fictional Chicago Mayor Tom Kane, the series also stars Connie Nielsen, Hannah Ware, Jeff Hephner, Kathleen Robertson, Troy Garity and Rotimi. Produced by Lionsgate, "Boss" earned a Golden Globe(R) nomination for Best Drama Series for its debut season and is currently shooting season two in Chicago.

Joining the ensemble cast as series regulars this season are Jonathan Groff (Spring Awakening, "Glee") as Ian Todd, a smart and ambitious young advisor to Kane, and Sanaa Lathan ("Nip/Tuck," A Raisin in the Sun), Alderman Ross' strong-willed and politically savvy Chief of Staff. Special guest star Tip Harris, who is known internationally as rapper T.I. ("American Gangster," "Takers"), will be featured as Trey, a former gangbanger with designs on a career in City Hall. Additional guest stars include Amy Morton (Up in the Air, "Private Practice") as State Senator Catherine Walsh, who has been defeated in her bid for Governor three times, but is now determined win.

Dee Johnson ("The Good Wife," "ER") will serve as executive producer along with series creator Farhad Safinia, Kelsey Grammer, Gus Van Sant, Brian Sher, and Stella Bulochnikov. The series is produced by Lionsgate Television in association with Grammnet NH Productions, Roya Productions and Small Wishes, Inc.

In season two of "Boss," 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 also 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's worked a lifetime to build. In order to maintain it, Kane must govern as he always has - ruthlessly.
