Shane Gillis Netflix show 'Tires' releases first trailer

Shane Gillis drinks brews and poops in the customer restroom in the trailer for “Tires,” his workplace comedy series premiering May 23 on Netflix.

The six-episode scripted show follows Will (Steven Gerben), “the nervous and unqualified heir to an auto repair chain” who “attempts to turn around his father’s business despite constant torture at the hands of his cousin and now employee, Shane (Gillis),” according to the log line.

“We can sit here in the dark and sulk, or we can get our asses in the sun and sell some damn tires!” Gillis says in the trailer in an attempt to motivate the staff at Valley Forge Automotive Center.

Other cast members include Chris O’Connor, Kilah Fox, Stavros Halkias and guest star Andrew Schulz.

Gillis created the series together with Gerben and John McKeever, who together with Gillis form half of the sketch comedy duo Gilly and Keeves. McKeever is also director of ‘Tires’. The trio also holds the title of writer and executive producer, alongside Brandon James for Rough House; Brian Stern and Kenneth Slotnick for AGI Entertainment Media & Management; and Becky Astphan.

“Tires” was independently produced by Gillis and McKeever’s production company Dad Sick and acquired by Netflix in February. As part of that deal, the streamer will also produce a new stand-up special from Gillis, whose 2023-hour “Beautiful Dogs” was a hit last fall.

Despite his awkward fame — Gillis was hired by “Saturday Night Live” and fired days later after clips of him making racist comments resurfaced on his podcast — he has become one of the biggest names in comedy in recent years. His podcast with Matt McCusker, “Matt and Shane’s Secret Podcast,” has more paid subscribers on Patreon than any other creator. And in February, Gillis was invited back to Studio 8H to host “SNL,” joking in his monologue, “Most of you probably have no idea who I am. I was actually – I got fired from this show a while ago. But you know what, don’t look that up, please. If you don’t know who I am, don’t Google it. It is well. Don’t even worry about it.”
