"Reno 911!" stars bring comedy to NBC

By Nellie Andreeva

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Two months after he broke the news of his Comedy Central show "Reno 911!" coming to an end, series star/co-creator Thomas Lennon is headlining a new comedy project at NBC.

The broadcast network has committed to a pilot for a comedy that Lennon will write with Robert Ben Garant, his "Reno" co-creator/co-star and frequent collaborator.

The two also will serve as executive producers of the project, whose premise is being kept under wraps. Lennon will star; Garant will play a supporting role.

Lennon and Garant, co-founders of New York-based sketch comedy troupe the State, have written such features as the two "Night at the Museum" films, "Reno 911!: Miami," "Balls of Fury" and "The Pacifier."

They have several film projects in the pipeline: "How to Survive a Robot Uprising" at Paramount, "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" and "The Devil You Know" at Fox and "The Incredible Shrinking Man" for Universal and Imagine.

In front of the camera, Lennon recently appeared in "I Love You, Man" and "17 Again."
