WHAT WE DID
Branding STRATEGY Experiential Marketing
Detroiters was Executive produced by Lorne Michaels and `Saturday Night Live’ alumnus Jason Sudeikis, `Detroiters’ stars best friends and Detroit natives Sam Richardson and Tim Robinson as fledgling ad men in the Motor City. Lacking the resources to challenge the money, connections and talent of big corporations, the guys rely on relentless ambition to build a local advertising empire. And no matter what happens, Tim and Sam’s love for each other and their city never wavers. Richardson is best known for his role on `Veep’, while Robinson is a former `SNL’ cast member-turned-writer on the show.
