NBC's sitcom about the auto industry is set to debut next week.
"American Auto" stars "Saturday Night Live" alum Ana Gasteyer as the CEO of a Detroit automaker called Payne Motors. In a trailer posted online last week, Gasteyer is shown taking in a presentation from the chief product designer, played by Michael Benjamin Washington.
"The Ponderosa will be Payne's first fully autonomous vehicle," Washington says.
"The name Ponderosa," Gasteyer interrupts, "do we like it?"
