Interview: 'The Mayor's' Yvette Nicole Brown previews new ABC series

In ABC's "The Mayor," young rapper Courtney Rose (Brandon Micheal Hall) needs his big break. For years he’s toiled away in a small inner-city apartment, making music in his junk-filled bedroom closet. Tired of waiting for opportunity to knock, Courtney cooks up the publicity stunt of the century – running for mayor of his California hometown, Fort Grey, to generate buzz for his music career. But his master plan goes wildly awry, ending in the most terrifying of outcomes: an election victory.

The cast attend the PaleyFest Fall Previews, Screening, Panel and Q&A of their show last month at Paley Center For Media. 

TVMusic Network was on on hand and talked to the cast including actress Yvette Nicole Brown. The actress has been a familiar face on television screens for years having been in many project, including "Community," "The Odd Couple," and BET's "The New Edition Story" to name a few.
