NEW COMEDY SERIES

AMERICAN AUTO

From the creator of “Superstore” comes a new workplace comedy that takes over the auto industry. Based in Detroit, the business leaders of Payne Motors are at a crossroads: adapting to changing times or being scrapped. The new CEO, whose leadership, experience and common sense are only slightly outweighed by her complete lack of knowledge about cars, is shaking things up. Thankfully, his team have some of the best minds in the business, when they’re not fighting or trying to outdo themselves. From the head office to the factory, the Payne Motors team brings laughter at home.

BIG CREW
From Phil Augusta Jackson (Writer / Producer / Director, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) and Dan Goor (Creator, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) comes a new comedy that proves that life is better with your team. This group of young professionals are all trying to navigate the ups and downs of life and love in Los Angeles – and they always find time to meet at their favorite bar to ‘drink wine’ and unwrap it all. There’s Noah, a desperate romantic eager to settle down; Nicky, a real estate go-getter who is adventurous in romance; Sherm, a discreet genius who plays the meeting card; Anthony, whose true love is his career; Wyatt, who is relieved to be married and out of the dating scene; and Fay, who recently divorced and is looking to make a fresh start in LA. And just like wine, their friendship improves over time.

Nicole Byer, Justin Cunningham, Aaron Jennings, Echo Kellum, Grasie Mercedes and Carl Tart are the stars.
