Sam Miller is the city desk editor for the Chicago Sentinel newspaper.


Season 1Edit

Miller covers a campaign event where Mayor Tom Kane speaks in support of Governor McCall Cullen for re-election. Kane then backs away from his crony to support young and ambitious state treasurer Ben Zajac to replace Cullen. He takes Zajac to the City Hall roof gardens, ensuring that their meeting is publicized. Miller is tipped off about Kane seeing neurologist Dr. Ella Harris and unsuccessfully attempts to question her.

Miller attends a publicity event for a school improvement program funded by scientia, through the Mayor's wife Meredith Kane. He notices concealed mold behind wall hangings at a supposedly much improved inner city school and points it out to the camera crews present.

Work on Kane's redevelopment project for the city's O'Hare Airport is halted when an unpopular cemetery relocation project uncovers ancient Native American paintings.[1]

Season 2Edit

Sam Miller is having a hard time adjusting to his new position at The Sentinel, because while editing might be his job description, reporting is his nature. Conspiracy theories be damned, he is going to expose Mayor Kane’s nefarious political maneuvering and illusive illness. And now he has a position with the power to do it. As Miller leaves no stone unturned between himself and Kane, he is surprised to uncover feelings of his own that may be better left off the front page.

After the riots that befall Chicago around the same time Mayor Kane sought treatment for his illness at an alternative clinic in Canada, the mayor disposes of police superintendent Roycyk as political collateral damage. As revenge, Roycyk seeks out Miller, informing him that Kane's car had crossed over into Canada at the same time Kane was missing from office. Miller investigates further, leading him on a chase that leads to clues of Kane's illness.

He is ultimately led to a police official, who demands $10,000 in return for information on the cover up of the murder of Ezra Stone. The move turns out to be a setup, and the deal is caught on camera, disgracing Miller, and getting him fired from the Chicago Sentinel. Seen as no longer credible, Miller is unable to inform the public on Kane's illness at the end of Season 2.
