Spin City is a smart, sophisticated sitcom about the behind-the-scenes workings of City Hall in the biggest city in America. Workaholic Mike Flaherty is the Deputy Mayor of New York City, serving as Mayor Randall Winston's key strategist and much-needed handler. Mike runs the city with the help of his oddball staff: an anxious and insecure press secretary; a sexist, boorish chief of staff; an impeccably groomed gay activist running minority affairs; a sharp and efficient, man-crazy accountant; and an idealistic young speechwriter. Like Mike, they are all professionally capable but personally challenged.

Spin Star was a British television game show that was broadcast on ITV, and was hosted by Bradley Walsh. It was based around a five-reel slot machine called the Moneyspinner. The reels displayed question subjects, the names of the five contestants who will answer the questions, and cash amounts that are won if the questions are answered correctly. The five contestants do not win the money for themselves however; instead, they are winning it for the Spin Star, the contestant who has been there the longest. Therefore, each contestant will be on the show for six episodes, five answering questions for someone else, then one where they are in charge of the Moneyspinner. The first reel has a range of categories of questions on it, each given a star rating of up to three stars. One star means the questions are of easy difficulty, two stars mean the questions are of medium difficulty and three stars mean the questions are of hard difficulty. After a category has been used, it is replaced by a new category, with any unused categories from a previous show being re-used. The second, third and fourth reels have the names of the five daily players on them. These reels decide who will answer the questions.
