Comedy Central Orders Detroit Buddy Comedy Pilot Produced By Jason Sudeikis & Broadway Video

Comedy Central is heading to Motor City with a pilot order to Detroiters, a comedy executive produced by Saturday Night Live alum Jason Sudeikis and SNL honcho Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video.

Detroiters stars cast member-turned-SNL writer Tim Robinson and Sam Richardson (Veep), Detroit natives who performed together at Chicago’s Second City. The project revolves around Sam (Richardson) and Tim (Robinson), two local ad men who make low-budget commercials in Detroit. But, much like the city in which they live, the best friends aspire to achieve greater things. Richardson and Robinson co-created, co-wrote and executive produce Detroiters with Joe Kelly and Zach Kanin. Here is a Second City video skit with Richardson and Robinson.

Robinson starred in another Comedy Central pilot, sketch comedy My Mans. Here is a trailer:

Richardson is repped by LEG, Innovative Artists and Jackoway Tyerman. Robinson is repped by Odenkirk Provissiero, CAA and Hansen Jacobsen.
