Comedy Central is moving forward on a new comedy series titled Detroiters created by Sam Richardson, Tim Robinson, Joe Kelly, and Zach Kanin. The foursome will also write and executive produce the show along with executive producers Jason Sudeikis (Horrible Bosses) and Broadway Video. Season one will consist of 10 episodes.
The announcement of the new Motor City-based comedy Detroiters was made by Comedy Central’s President of Original Programming Kent Alterman. “The creative team on Detroiters is so ridiculously funny, we’re not even sure we deserve them,” stated Alterman.
Sam Richardson and Tim Robinson, both natives of Detroit, will star as small-time ad men who aspire to help turn their hometown back into the glittering jewel of the Midwest that it once was. In addition to serving as an executive producer, Sudeikis will appear in a limited number of episodes as a successful automotive executive Richardson and Robinson relentlessly pursue in an effort to land their first big-time client.
