The concept for the show was set in motion after the writers had seen Michael J. Fox in 1995's The American President (1995), playing one of the president's political aids. They wanted him to play a similar character for TV. See more »

Spin City is the funniest show I have seen in a long time. Michael J Fox and his delightful cast add a lot of spunk and funniness to the show. I recommend it to all people who are Michael J Fox fans, as it is one of his best. It was funny to see the different antics that were going on in each episode. Charlie Sheen replaces MJF in the 5th season and thats when everything started to go downhill. 3 other cast mates left after MJF left. It only lasted 2 seasons after MJF was replaced by Charlie Sheen. So, if you are just getting hooked on this show, I suggest that you only watch seasons 1-4, the rest aren't really worth it. I give this show 10 out of 10.
