LAW AND DISORDER RETURN! COMEDY CENTRAL'S� "RENO 911!" RENEWED FOR SIXTH SEASON TO DEBUT MARCH 12 WITH TWO NEW CAST MEMBERS

Ian Roberts And Joe Lo Truglio Join Cast

Series Returns With 10 New Episodes

NEW YORK, November 10, 2008 � It's law enforcement at its funniest as COMEDY CENTRAL's "RENO 911!" returns for a sixth 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 resumes this month, with the new season to debut Thursday, March 12, 2009. The 10-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.

This season, two new cops join the "RENO 911!" squad: Sergeant Jack Declan (Ian Roberts) the macho, by-the-book cop's cop and Deputy Franky Rizzo (Jo Lo Truglio), a big city cop and the opposite of Declan who not only doesn't play by the rules, he hasn't even read the rules.

"We could not be more excited to have Ian Roberts and Joe Lo Truglio join the cast of "RENO 911!" We've taken the show up a notch," say Garant, Lennon and Kenney-Silver.

Ian Roberts film credits include "Step Brothers, "RENO 911!: Miami," "Talladega Nights," and "Anchorman." Roberts has had guest roles on "Arrested Development" and was a founding member of COMEDY CENTRAL's "Upright Citizens Brigade." Joe Lo Truglio is best known for film roles in "Pineapple Express," "Superbad" and "RENO 911!: Miami" and was one of the founding members of "The State" comedy troupe on MTV.

"RENO 911!'s" premiere telecast was among the most successful in network history and it continues to be one of the network's most highly-rated series.

"RENO 911!" gives viewers the chance to witness the men and women of the Reno Sheriff's Department at work and at play, offering a hilarious and unexpected spoof of the traditional cop reality program. With an ensemble cast that features "Viva Variety" and "The State" alumni Robert Ben Garant, Kerri Kenney-Silver and Thomas Lennon, "RENO 911!" is an improv comedy about the adventures and relationships of a local Reno, Nevada precinct.

Credits for "RENO 911!" include Garant, Kenney-Silver and Lennon as executive producers along with Jersey Television's Jon Landgraf, Danny DeVito, Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher. Peter Principato and Paul Young serve as co-executive producers. Jim Sharp and Monika Zielinska are the executives in charge of production for COMEDY CENTRAL.
