Netflix dropped Tires season 1, on May 23, 2024. The six-episode scripted comedy series follows Will, the anxious and seemingly unqualified heir to an auto repair chain, as he tries to revitalize his father's business while enduring constant torment from his cousin and now employee, Shane.

The show is co-created and executive-produced by comedian Shane Gillis who recently took part in the Netflix Is a Joke Fest earlier in May. His partnership with Netflix also includes an upcoming stand-up special set to be released next year in 2025.

John McKeever, who appears in the hilarious show Tires season 1 as Belmont Store manager, has directed the series. Along with Gillis, McKeever and Steve Gerben have served as co-creators, writers, and executive producers.

Gillis began his comedy career in the early 2010s, gaining recognition through his appearances on various comedy podcasts and his co-hosting role on Matt and Shane's Secret Podcast.

Gillis's comedy often tackles provocative subjects, leading to both acclaim and criticism. In 2019, he was briefly cast on Saturday Night Live but was quickly let go after past controversial comments surfaced.

Despite this setback, Gillis continued to build a dedicated following through his stand-up performances, podcasts, and appearances on popular comedy platforms.
