Description

Spin City is an American television sitcom created by Gary David Goldberg and Bill Lawrence, based on a fictional local government running New York City and originally starring Michael J. Fox as Mike Flaherty (and in the last two seasons Charlie Sheen as Charlie Crawford), the Deputy Mayor of New York.

The series aired in the USA on ABC from 17 September, 1996 to 30 April, 2002. There are 145 half-hour episodes in six seasons.

The series originally aired in South Africa on SABC3 from 22 September, 1997 to 20 November, 2002. It later aired on DStv's M-Net Series and Comedy Central channels. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 6 premiered on Comedy Central on Thursday 19 July 2012, at 18h20. New episodes broadcast in a double bill daily, on weekdays. There are 22 episodes in the sixth and final season.

Synopsis

Set in New York City, this sophisticated and witty comedy series takes an unusual look at the daily activities that take place at City Hall.

Meet Michael Flaherty (Michael J. Fox, Seasons 1-4) and Charlie Crawford (Charlie Sheen, Seasons 5-6), the Deputy Mayor and right-hand man to Washington's Mayor Randall Winston (Barry Bostwick).

This competent Deputy keeps his co-workers and City Hall under complete control while his personal life often goes haywire.

After Mike Flaherty eventually takes the blame for an alleged Mafia link that the Mayor unknowingly had, he resigns. A new deputy Mayor is sworn in - Charlie Crawford.

With a staff of wildly diverse characters consisting of a neurotic press secretary, a gay activist in charge of minority affairs, a chauvinist chief of staff, a highly efficient accountant, an idealistic speechwriter and an intrepid Mayor's assistant, it's hard to believe anything gets done.
