After his first stand-up special on the streamer, Netflix has expanded its relationship with comedian Shane Gillis by ordering a new series called Tires that will be released in May 2024.

Tires is an older Gillis project that has been given a new life with the acquisition by Netflix. The series is created, written, and produced by Shane Gillis, Steve Gerben, and John McKeever. McKeever will also direct all the episodes.

The news of the acquisition comes days after Gillis just reappeared on SNL (and bombed, according to most critics) after being fired from the long-running NBC show just five days after being hired back in 2019 due to ethnic slurs used in a podcast. Since then, Gillis has rocketed in popularity, best known for his stand-up, Trump impressions, and the ability to go viral on the likes of TikTok.

Tires is the second production from Gillis and McKeever’s production company, Dad Sick Productions, after Gillis’ stand-up special Beautiful Dogs. After Tires, Netflix has ordered another stand-up special by Gillis that is expected to be released either this year or next.

Brandon James is an executive producer for Rough House; Brian Stern and Kenneth Slotnick are executive producers for AGI Entertainment Media & Management.

What’s the Netflix release date for Tires?

It has been officially confirmed that Tires will debut on Netflix globally on May 23, 2024. Netflix has yet to drop any trailers or promotional material for the series.
