Detroiters stars 

Review of "Detroiters" 2/20/17 by Suzanne
Airs Tuesdays 10:30/9:30c on Comedy Central

This is very much like a lot of Comedy Central shows, such as "Workaholics." It looks like "average people" being goofy. It's somewhat funny, but not so funny that you want to rave about it. It's the kind of show that, if you're changing channels and see it on, maybe you'll keep watching it.

Two guys, Shawn and Tim, are running an ad agency started by Tim's late dad. They have big dreams and do whatever they can to make those dreams come true. In the first episode, they tried to get a guy at Chrysler to listen to their pitch.  Shawn and Tim are best friends in real life as well as on the show. Their cameraderie really does show.

It's chuckle-worthy.  You should check it out. You might like it!



  • Executive Produced, Created and Written by Sam Richardson, Tim Robinson, Joe Kelly and Zach Kanin and Executive Produced by Lorne Michaels, Broadway Video and Jason Sudeikis
  • Guest Stars Include Obba Babatunde, Michael Che, Comedian CP, Steve Higgins, Richard Karn, Keegan-Michael Key, Kevin Nash, Wendy Raquel Robinson, Cecily Strong, Trick Trick, George Wallace and Malcolm-Jamal Warner

NEW YORK, December 13, 2016 –The Motor City comes alive in Comedy Central’s new series “Detroiters,” premiering Tuesday, February 7 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT following the season nine premiere of “Tosh.0.”

Sam Richardson, from Detroit, and Tim Robinson, from Metro Detroit, are real life best friends who star as small-time ad men in the Motor City. Whatever they do, they do it together. And no matter what happens, Tim and Sam’s love for each other and their city never wavers. Jason Sudeikis, who is an executive producer, also appears in a narrative arc as a successful Chrysler brand executive whom Richardson and Robinson relentlessly pursue in an effort to land their first big-time client. Guest stars across the first season include Obba Babatunde, Michael Che, Comedian CP, Steve Higgins, Richard Karn, Keegan-Michael Key, Kevin Nash, Wendy Raquel Robinson, Cecily Strong, Trick Trick, George Wallace and Malcolm-Jamal Warner.

In the premiere episode, Sam and Tim try to secure a big ad campaign with the Chrysler brand, resulting in a disaster. They also allow their young assistant Lea to finish a hot-tub commercial on her own, which ends in a surprising success for the client.
