Comedy Central Orders 10 Episodes of Tim Robinson and Sam Richardson’s ‘Detroiters’


Former SNL cast member Tim Robinson is headed to Comedy Central. According to Deadline, the network has officially picked up Detroiters for a 10-episode first season. The show – which Comedy Central ordered to pilot in January – stars Robinson and Veep’s Sam Richardson as “two small-time Detroit ad men who aspire to help turn their hometown back into the glittering jewel of the Midwest that it once was.” SNL alum Jason Sudeikis will co-executive produce alongside Lorne Michaels’s Broadway Video and have a recurring role in the series, and Robinson, Richardson, Joe Kelly, and Zach Kanin will also executive produce.
