Their mother, Mariam (Dianne Wiest) does not want her sons to follow in their late father's footsteps. She questions their suspicious activities in the trailer.

Mike McLusky (Renner) is considered the mayor of Kingstown. Another character explains that Mike runs the city, and even the elected mayor knows it.

The cast of Mayor of Kingstown also spoke with the Television Critics Association in a Zoom panel on Tuesday. Renner said that the city of Kingstown, whose only industry is prisons, drives his character to corruption.

"It all starts with the limited bleak surroundings," Renner said. "We all share a similar backdrop and how we are, I don't want to say victims, but products of our environments."

Wiest said Mariam has grown disillusioned. After her husband's death and seeing her sons follow in his footsteps, Mariam no longer believes in anything.

"I don't think she really even believes in family anymore," Wiest said. "She is enraged and she takes that rage out on her children."
