Silas Benjamin (Ian McShane) rules over all he sees, with a corrupt set of values and a belief that it was his divine right to rule his country, which is pretty much New York.

Now Silas has a national hero he can manipulate to suit his Kingly needs, and of course all hell breaks loose. But it's got Ian McShane, so check it out on NBC at 8 PM.
