By: Jon Corrigan

To celebrate its new show Detroiters, Comedy Central wants to buy real-life Detroiters a beer.

From 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 7, visitors to 24 participating locals bars (21 in Detroit, three in Hamtramck) can get one free beer to toast the series premiere.

The show’s creators and stars, Sam Richardson (who grew up in Detroit) and Tim Robinson (a Clarkston native), made a video inviting everyone out for the occasion. Watch it here.

Detroiters, which is set and filmed in Detroit, is about two best friends who work at a small-time ad agency producing low-budget commercials. The show will feature appearances from Jason Sudekis (who also is an executive producer, along with Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels), Keegan-Michael Key, Cecily Strong, Tonight Show announcer Steve Higgins, former Detroit Piston Rick Mahorn and others.
