Lea Michele is kicking off production on her new ABC comedy series The Mayor, and the former Scream Queens star is excited to be working on a TV project yet again.
The actress commemorated the new production with a cute selfie with co-star Bernard David.
"Excited for our second day of filming on @TheMayorABC!" Michele captioned the smiling snapshot.

The 30-year-old former Glee star was also feeling the "dressing room vibes" in this cute pic she shared, showing the decorative candles, potted plants and ornate vases that adorn her on-set sanctuary.
ABC's hotly anticipated comedy The Mayor follows a young aspiring rapper named Courtney Rose (Brandon Micheal Hall) who decides to run for Mayor in his hometown as a publicity stunt to generate interest in his new mix-tape.
Things don't go as planned when he actually manages to get elected, and calls on his mom, Dina (Yvette Nicole Brown), and his friend Valentina (Michele) to help him become the kind of person who can actually help his community.

"I really love strong female characters and she has a strength to her that is palpable so I was very excited," she shared.
