Lea Michele’s first TV gig that wasn’t the result of a pre-existing professional relationship with Ryan Murphy premiered Tuesday night. “The Mayor” beat out FOX’s Golden Globe award-winning “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” but was still ABC’s “least-watched and lowest-rated” comedy series of the night.
Lea Michele is coming back to television this fall. The singer spent Tuesday at the upfront event for her new network, ABC, to promote her new show, “The Mayor.” The story of a rapper who gets himself elected mayor, Lea plays the lead character’s political rival before she changes teams after the election.
Lea was styling at the event in a strapless dress. She live tweeted throughout, showing off her red carpet look and her meet-up with “Scandal” star Kerry Washington.
