Reno 911 Is Canceled (And That's Fine With Us)
Richard Lawson

So, Reno 911!, Comedy Central's improv-heavy COPS spoof, has been canceled. A while back we'd have grieved the loss of one of the network's most consistently-funny shows, but... not so much these days. The show had been kinda hurting.

Reno 911! gets call for big screen

The creators of Comedy Central's Reno 911! are taking their cop spoof to the big screen.

Reno 911!: Miami, which starts shooting January 23 in Miami and Los Angeles, finds the officers visiting a national police convention in Miami Beach at the height of spring break. When the convention center is bio-attacked, it's up to Reno's "finest" to save the day.

The 20th Century Fox/Paramount production will be directed by the TV series' co-creator, Robert Ben Garant, who also co-wrote the script of the improvisational-based project and will star.

The cast also includes co-creator/writers Thomas Lennon and Kerri Kenney as well as series stars Niecy Nash, Mary Birdsong, Cedric Yarbrough, Carlos Alazraqui, and Wendi McLendon-Covey.

Net will pair oddball secret agent drama with oddball forensic drama Monk.

USA Network OKs Canadian Secret Service pilot

USA Network has formally ordered the comedy-drama pilot Underfunded, which it views as a companion piece for its oddball crime saga Monk.

Stage actor Mather Zickel, best known for playing Mike Powers on Comedy Central's Reno 911!, has signed on for the lead role, lifting the cast-contingency on the project.

Zickel will play as Darryl Freehorn, star agent for the little-known Canadian Secret Service whose brilliance in the field compensates for the woefully underfunded agency's lack of resources. Production is slated to begin February 6 in Vancouver.

Zickel's credits also include the ABC biopic Gilda Radner: It's Always Something, in which he played Bill Murray.

From the folks that brought you "The State" and "Viva Variety!" are back for some law-enforcement mayhem. Meet the men and women of the Washoe County Sheriff's Department, led by Lt. Jim Dangle (Tom Lennon) -- a straight-and-narrow cop who might not be all that "straight" after all. Deputies include a former topless showgirl and a 5-foot-4 veritable crime-fightin' machine. On tonight's premiere episode, Lt. Dangle declares Reno a zero-tolerance town. Unfortunately, the entire population has heard the news and is obeying every rule. Awards & Nominations •2004 GLAAD Media Award - Nominated Outstanding Comedy Series Reno Trivia •Almost all character dialogue is improvised by the actors. •The main actors frequently appear on the show as other characters with their faces blurred. For example, Kerri Kenney often played Jackie, the unbalanced prostitute. •One of the apartment buildings seen in Season 2 was torn down shortly after filming was finished in Carson. •According to an interview with 'Thomas Lennon' , the main cast member who ruins the most takes by laughing out loud is Carlos Alazraqui. •This show uses improvisation, as 99% of the lines are unscripted. •Filming Locations: Carson, California, USA & Reno, Nevada, USA.moreless
