There is some good information for the automotive source chain, at least the TV model. “American Car” has been renewed by NBC.
The sitcom from “Superstore” creator Justin Spitzer will be back for the 2022-23 period, in accordance to Hollywood Reporter.
Established (but not filmed) in Detroit, “American Car” revolves all over the day-to-day struggles of Payne Motors, a fictional 100-year-old firm that’s dealing with many community relations disasters at a time when the long term of the whole industry is evolving.
“Saturday Night Are living” alum Ana Gasteyer plays Payne’s new CEO, a former drug business executive who is unfamiliar with cars and trucks and car or truck culture. The 50 %-hour comedy also stars Jon Barinholtz as a clueless heir to the company, Harriet Dyer as its frazzled communications chief and Detroiter Tye White as an assembly line worker elevated to the white-collar ranks.

Though Spitzer stresses that the show is a satire of major enterprise in common, he traveled to Detroit all through his research process with Alessandro Uzielli, the head of Ford Motor Co.’s worldwide brand name entertainment division and the company’s liaison to Hollywood.
Spitzer visited Ford’s corporate workplaces in Dearborn, and he briefly fulfilled previous CEO and president James Hackett in an elevator. He also toured Ford’s design labs and the Dearborn Truck Plant where F-150s are built.
“American Auto” finished the time amid the decrease-rated reveals of the 2021-22 period, but it has drawn fantastic testimonials for its consider on corporate life.
Numerous other sitcoms weren’t as fortunate as “American Automobile” this week. According to trade industry reviews, NBC’s “Kenan” and “Mr. Mayor” and CBS sitcoms “B Good” and “How We Roll,” which was based on the lifestyle of Saginaw bowler Tom Smallwood, have been canceled.
