Comedy Central Orders Detroiters


NEW YORK: Comedy Central has given the green light to the ten-episode series Detroiters.

Created and written by Sam Richardson, Tim Robinson, Joe Kelly and Zach Kanin, the comedy series is executive produced by Broadway Video and Jason Sudeikis. Richardson and Robinson, Detroit natives, star as small-time ad men who aspire to help turn their hometown back into the glittering jewel of the Midwest. Sudeikis will appear in a limited number of episodes.

"The creative team on Detroiters is so ridiculously funny, we're not even sure we deserve them," said Kent Alterman, the president of original programming at Comedy Central.
