Tagline: It started with a shootout on a rainswept street and ended in a scandal that shattered New York.

Plot: "City Hall" provides an insider's look into big city politics, as seen through the eyes of young, idealistic deputy mayor Kevin Calhoun.

When an off-duty cop and a mob-connected drug dealer engage in a shootout, a stray bullet kills a young Black boy. But the incident enmeshes charismatic NYC mayor John Pappas and his right-hand man Kevin in a web of widespread corruption, involving fellow politicians, the mob, the police, and the judicial system. The resulting scandal has repercussions for many of the key players and changes New York's political landscape -- and the lives of Pappas and Calhoun -- forever.
