Superior Donuts

Show Summary

Superior Donuts is based on the play by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning writer Tracy Letts. Arthur is the owner of a small donut shop whose neighborhood is slowing changing into an upscale Chicago neighborhood. Arthur refuses to sell anything but donuts - no new stuff like cronuts and macchiatos. His shop is still circa 1969 and he refuses to renovate. But along comes Franco who fast-talks his way into Arthurs life and convinces him he can bring his shop up-to-date. Arthur's regulars include cop Randy, her partner James, Tush who uses the shop as a makeshift office, Maya who's working on her Ph.D. and Sweatpants who's a long time friend of Franco. The ever ready real estate capitalist, Fawz, tries everyday to get Arthur to sell him the shop's building. Torn between selling and staying in business, Arthur decides to embrace change and that Franco may be just what he and the donut shop need. Executive producers include Bob Daily, Neil Goldman, Garrett Donovan, Mark Teitelbaum, John R. Montgomery, Michael Rotenberg, Josh Lieberman and Jermaine Fowler. The show is produced by CBS Television Studios.

The Pilot aired on Thursday, February 2 at 8:30 pm before moving to its regular Monday time slot on February 6, 2017 at 9:00 pm.
