Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Jason Sudeikis and series stars and creators Sam Richardson and Tim Robinson, DETROITERS is a half-hour comedy series that focuses on Sam And Tim, two real-life friends from Detroit, who star as small-time ad men in the Motor City. They may not be Detroit's best ad men, but they're sure as hell Detroit's best friends. 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. Sudeikis also appears in a narrative arc as a successful automotive executive whom Richardson and Robinson relentlessly pursue in an effort to land their first big-time client. The series opens with Sam and Tim trying 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. 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.
On Tuesday, April 11, 2017 at 10:30pm ET/PT, Comedy Central premiered the season finale of DETROITERS. In the season ender, "Quick Rick Mahorn in Dearborn," the guys become wracked with guilt after running into Carter Grant at the local advertising awards ceremony. Three weeks earlier -- on Monday, March 20 -- Comedy Central renewed DETROITERS for a second season.
