Executive producer Justin Spitzer proved he knows a thing or two about workplace comedies with his "Superstore," which enjoyed a successful NBC run from 2015 to 2021. The network is hoping this new Spitzer sitcom, set in a struggling Detroit automobile company, enjoys similar good fortune. After a December sneak preview, in tonight's series premiere, new CEO Katherine Hastings (Ana Gasteyer) promises a big announcement on her first quarterly earnings call. Elsewhere, Jack and Elliot (Tye White, Humphrey Ker) negotiate a contract with the line-workers union.
