• Reno 911! duo sell pilot to NBC

    Reno 911!So maybe NBC doesn’t suck as bad as we all thought.

    On Tuesday, it was announced that Peacock Network (now thoroughly plucked, it seems) would be picking up a pilot written by Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon, the co-creators and writers of the now-canceled Reno 911!

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show, titled The Strip, centers around a former child star (Lennon), who compensates for his (presumed) fall from famous grace by opening a Hooters-esque restaurant in a strip mall.
