Let’s go back to 1996

Spin City debuted on ABC on September 17, 1996 and ran for seasons, 145 episode ’til its end in 2002.

New York Mayor Randall Winston needs help running the city. So, for much of the series, he counts on Deputy Mayor Mike Flaherty to help him. Flaherty, usually a man who is calm and organized, can “spin” out of control when it comes to his personal life, the ditzy mayor, and his abnormal co-workers.

For the show’s final two seasons, Flaherty is replaced as deputy mayor by Charlie Crawford (Charlie Sheehan) after Michael J. Fox, who played Flaherty, left the show after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.

The cast also featured Richard Boatman, Heather Locklear, Connie Britton, Barry Bostwick, Jennifer Esposito and many more great supporting actors/actresses.
