How to Watch 'American Auto,' a New Sitcom about the Auto Industry

  • A new NBC sitcom called American Auto looks at the struggles of 100-year-old Payne Motors as it tries to navigate the world of self-driving cars and other 2021 industry challenges.
  • The producers and actors have ties to The Office, Superstore, and Saturday Night Live, so rest assured that they're not as bumbling as the characters they play.
  • Two episodes are out now on Hulu and iTunes, with NBC's official start of the series coming on January 4.

    Workplace television comedies can be genius, as The Office and 30 Rock proved. They can also fall flat and disappear before anyone can pay attention enough to remember them (if you can name the early-1990s doctor's-office sitcom that featured a young Ellen DeGeneres without Google's help, you're in the minority). With two episodes already out ahead of the January 4 debut, you can be the judge as to which category the new NBC sitcom called American Auto belongs in.
