Actor-writer-producer X Mayo (The Daily Show) is set as a series regular opposite Ana Gasteyer and Harriet Dyer in NBC’s single-camera comedy pilot American Auto, from Superstore creator Justin Spitzer, Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment and Universal Television.

Written by Spitzer, American Auto is set at the headquarters of a major American automotive company in Detroit, where a floundering group of executives try to rediscover the company identity amidst a rapidly changing industry.

X Mayo will play Dori, a sweet, wholesome assistant to the CEO (Gasteyer).

Spitzer executive produces with Kapital’s Kaplan and Dana Honor.

X Mayo is currently a staff writer on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. Most recently, she had a heavily recurring role on season 2 of the series Strangers on Facebook Watch as well as a supporting role in the film The Farewell, starring Awkwafina. An alumni performer at Upright Citizens Brigade, X has performed comedy at multiple festivals including 2nd Best and Hell Yes Fest. She is also the producer/creator of Who Made The Potato Salad? A Cookout Comedy Show that gets made in a day by people of color. X Mayo is repped by Innovative Artists and Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz.
