American Auto is a television sitcom that originates from the United States of America. This series has been created by Justin Spitzer premiered on NBC on 13 December 2021. There were also two sneak episodes. The series has been in development ever since August 2013. This is because TV writer Justin Spitzer got fresh off from the success of The Office sitcom and wanted to produce his own workplace comedy. But the series would be set in the upper-management corporate world. Justin put the idea as a put-pilot and sold his pitch to NBC. But the script did not go forward as a pilot and Spitzer in turn went on to work on another sitcom series named Superstore. He stepped down as the showrunner of Superstore in April 2019 and went on to sign an overall deal with Universal Television. He went back and redeveloped the American Auto script after that. NBC gave a pilot order for the series on 23 January 2022. Jeffrey Blitz served as the director of this pilot and Justin was the writer. He was also the executive producer of the series along with Aaron Kaplan and Dana Honor. The series first premiered on 13 December 2021 at 10 p.m. along with two sneak peek episodes. It returned to air on 4 January 2022 at its regular time slot at 8 p.m. every Tuesday.

American Auto Season 1 Episode 7 Recap
In the previous episodes, it was seen that Payne had to face criticism for its lack of LGBT representation in its advertisements. On the other hand, Katherine orders for an ad for the Payne Magellan which is scheduled to air in a week and has to be reshot with same-sex couples due to the result of the backlash. A politically conservative communications employee named Frank pushes back. While Sadie and Katherine directly supervise its production Wesley shadows the director of the ad. Sadie and Katherine attempt to ensure there is LGBTQ and minority representation in the ads. The team constantly swaps actors in and out which ultimately leads to the child actors being sent home before shooting ends as a result of their contracts. The final commercial has a few children and a very dark background which gives it a very creepy tone. Katherine notes that nobody cares about ads anymore and decides to let the ad air anyway. Before that, the executives at Payne travel to Iowa for the ribbon-cutting ceremony at Payne’s new factory. This factory promises to revive a struggling town. But the team learns of a highly competitive bid to host the factory merely hours before the ceremony. It is from a Balkan nation that has a reputation for human rights abuses.
