‘Reno 911′ is back: new episodes coming to Quibi streaming service in May
Having just posted about The State's online reunion today, we'd be remiss not to mention that Reno 911, the '00s-era COPS-spoof created by the comedy troupe's Thomas Lennon, Kerri Kenney-Silver and Robert Ben Garant, is back too. The series returns, in bite size form, via Jeffrey Katzenberg's new mobile streaming service Quibi beginning May 4 with most of the cast (and producer Danny DeVito) still down for the ride-along. Like all shows on Quibi, episodes will be about 10 minutes long, designed for lunch breaks, morning bus/subway commutes (when we go back to doing those), etc.
You can watch a few clips and previews of the new Reno 911 -- including a few cleverly of-the-moment Zoom "daily briefings" -- from the show below.
Other shows on Quibi: a new version of Punk'd hosted by Chance the Rapper; Flipped starring Will Forte and Kaitlin Olsen; thriller Most Dangerous Game starring Liam Hemsworth and Christophe Waltz; Survive, starring Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner; feel-good reality series Thanks a Million; dance culture series The Sauce hosted by Ayo & Teo; and more. They're all designed to fit your phone whether you're holding it vertically or horizontally. Quibi is currently offering a 90-day free trial and after that it'll be $4.99 a month with ads and $7.99 without ads.
