(TNS) -- Comic Jason Sudeikis ("Saturday Night Live") is co-producing Comedy Central's new series, "The Detroiters," played by two guys who grew up in Detroit. Sam Richardson and Tim Robinson were best buds, and Sudeikis says he first saw them when they all worked together in Second City in Chicago.
"They (Richardson and Robinson) have a childlike innocence to them, but with grown-men intelligence. They're incredibly clever. They're incredibly quick. They remind me like when I watched that pilot or even images of it, for me it looks like George C. Scott and Sidney Poitier doing, like, a '70s comedy, like 'The In-Laws' or something. It feels timeless. But at the same time relevant, because they just have a classic vibe to them. That was evident the very first time I saw them," he says.
