Run This Town is one of those “ripped from the headlines” stories. A young journalist and a young political aide become entangled in a larger-than-life political scandal as they struggle to navigate adult life. Like all their friends, Bram Shriver (Ben Platt) and Kamal Arafa (Mena Massoud) are struggling to climb the ladders at their respective workplaces: Bram at a newspaper, Kamal at City Hall. One day Bram answers the phone of a reporter who’s been laid off, and learns that someone has a video of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford (Damian Lewis) smoking crack. He seizes the moment to advance his career, but his friend Kamal must grapple with containing the story while maintaining his integrity.
