NEW YORK, October 9, 2006 -- The officers are back on patrol as COMEDY CENTRAL's "RENO 911!" returns for a fifth season. The half-hour comedy is created by and stars Robert Ben Garant, Kerri Kenney-Silver and Thomas Lennon as cops on the beat in Reno, Nevada. Production will resume in January 2007, with the new season to debut later in the year. The 13-episode series is a Jersey Television production in association with COMEDY CENTRAL. This hilarious take on the traditional cop drama is a character-driven comedy with soap opera-like twists and turns.

With an ensemble cast that features "Viva Variety" and "The State" alumni Robert Ben Garant, Kerri Kenney-Silver and Thomas Lennon, "RENO 911!" is a narrative comedy about the adventures and relationships of a local Reno, Nevada precinct. Joining Garant, Kenney-Silver and Lennon on the "Reno 911!" beat are Carlos Alazraqui, Mary Birdsong, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Niecy Nash and Cedric Yarbrough.

Credits for "RENO 911!" include John Landgraf, Garant, Kenney-Silver and Lennon as executive producers and Peter Principato and Paul Young as co-executive producers. Jim Sharp and Monika Zielinska serve as the executives in charge of production for COMEDY CENTRAL.
