Time for an inauguration! The Mayor, starring Brandon Micheal Hall and Lea Michele, doesn’t officially premiere on ABC until Oct. 3, but the pilot is currently up early on the ABC website.

Hall plays local rapper Courtney Rose, who runs for mayor of his California town as a stunt to promote his music career (“Why does anyone in my generation do anything? For attention.”) He’s up against a veteran politician with the uptight, type-A Valentina Barella (Michele) as his campaign manager.

Check out the episode here now, and for a brief moment, enjoy a fictional world in which an entertainer with no political knowledge running for office just for the attention would actually win a government election. Only on TV!

The Mayor officially premieres on ABC Oct. 3 at 9:30 p.m. ET.
