Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on making a comedy series called 'Detroiters'] It was very important that we show a different side. The one you are used to seeing is a place you go for zombie apocalypse. I'm not saying Detroit isn't a place where negative things exist. That would be irresponsible. But why doesn't Detroit deserve to have a fun comedy? Why does it always have to be a bleak crime drama where everybody's murdered?

Trivia:

His father was a restaurateur. See more »
