[ # ] NBC’s returning comedies are getting Christmas specials!
November 3rd, 2021 under Kenan Thompson, NBC, Ted Danson Mary Steenburgen, The Rock

NBC has been short on laughs this season so far because the sitcoms took the Fall off. However, they are coming back for one night in December to share some Christmas cheer.

On December 15th, Young Rock, Kenan, and Mr. Mayor will be giving us standalone holiday-themed episodes before they return in the new year.

Along with those three episodes, we will be getting sneak peeks of their two new comedies American Auto on December 13th after The Voice finale, and then on the next night, we get a 2-episode preview of Grand Crew.

To read descriptions of the episodes, then

AMERICAN AUTO

Logline: From the creator of “Superstore” comes a new workplace comedy that takes the wheels off the automobile industry. Set in Detroit, the corporate executives of Payne Motors are at a crossroads: adapt to the changing times or be sent to the junkyard. Shaking things up is the new CEO, whose leadership, experience and savvy is only slightly offset by her complete lack of knowledge about cars. Luckily, her team has some of the best minds in the business – when they aren’t fighting or trying to outwit each other. From the corporate office to the factory floor, the crew of Payne Motors is driving home the laughs.
Cast: Ana Gasteyer, Jon Barinholtz, Harriet Dyer, Humphrey Ker, Michael B. Washington, Tye White and X Mayo.

GRAND CREW

Logline: From Phil Augusta Jackson (Writer/Producer/Director, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) and Dan Goor (Creator, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) comes a new comedy that proves life is better with your crew. This group of young professionals are all trying to navigate the ups and downs of life and love in Los Angeles, and they always find time to gather at their favorite bar to “wine down” and unpack it all. There’s Noah, a hopeless romantic too eager to settle down; Nicky, a go-getter in real estate who’s adventurous in romance; Sherm, a low-key genius who plays the dating odds; Anthony, whose true love is his career; Wyatt, who’s relieved to be married and out of the dating scene; and Fay, who’s recently divorced and looking to start fresh in LA. And just like wine, their friendship gets better with time.
Cast: Nicole Byer, Justin Cunningham, Aaron Jennings, Echo Kellum, Grasie Mercedes and Carl Tart
