NEW YORK (AP) -- Bill de Blasio (dih BLAH'-zee-oh) appears ready for his close-up.
New York City's new mayor will be making an appearance on the small screen. He has a guest appearance slated on the show "The Good Wife." The episode is to air March 16.
De Blasio said he and his wife Chirlane McCray are "deeply obsessed" with the CBS political drama.
He said Tuesday that he was thrilled to meet the cast, which includes Julianna Margulies (mahr-GOO'-lee-ehz).
De Blasio's predecessor, Michael Bloomberg, appeared on the show last year.
The series is loosely inspired by another New York political figure: Eliot Spitzer. Spitzer resigned as New York governor in 2008 amid a prostitution scandal.
