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 his father’s business around despite constant torture from his cousin and now employee, Shane (Gillis),” according to the logline.

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

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

Gillis co-created the series with Gerben and John McKeever, who, with Gillis, forms one-half of the sketch comedy duo Gilly and Keeves. McKeever also serves as director of “Tires.” The trio also hold 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 Fe -

bruary. 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 rise to fame — Gillis was hired by “Saturday Night Live” and then fired days later after clips of him using racial slurs on his podcast resurfaced — he has become one of the biggest names in comedy over the last couple of 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 was fired from this show a while ago. But, you know, don’t look that up, please. If you don’t know who I am, please don’t Google that. It’s fine. Don’t even worry about it.”
