Lennon and Garant Creating New NBC Comedy


“Reno 911!” star/co-creator Thomas Lennon is headlining a new comedy project at NBC that he will write with Robert Ben Garant, his “Reno” co-creator/co-star and frequent collaborator. Lennon will star and Garant will play a supporting role.

The Hollywood Reporter says the two also will executive produce the project, whose premise is being kept under wraps, with Peter Principato and Paul Young.

“Our entire team has long been fans of the work Lennon and Garant have done on ‘Reno 911!’ as well as their comedy films,” NBC president of primetime entertainment Angela Bromstad said.

Lennon and Garant have written such features as the two “Night at the Museum” films, Reno 911!: Miami, Balls of Fury and The Pacifier.
