I couldn’t find a thread on the TV show “Detroiters” (which has two seasons already) so I’ll start one myself.
It’s one of the funniest shows I’ve seen in the past few years. Sam Richardson is hilarious on “Veep” and he’s equally hilarious on “Detroiters” as the co-owner of a bottom-of-the-barrel ad agency.
Maybe some of the attraction for me is nostalgia. I’m not from Detroit, but when I lived in Saskatchewan in the 80s and 90s, the cable company got NBC, ABC, and CBS feeds from Detroit, so I’m able to recognize quite a few Detroit references (Farmer Jack’s, Mel Farr Superstar, Mort Crim, Father & Son, etc.).
I never realised that so many notable comedians are from the Detroit area, either.
