NEW YORK, March 12, 2007 -- After a trip to the silver screen and some Miami vice, the Reno cops return to their roots in new episodes of "RENO 911!" on Sunday, April 1 at 10:30 p.m. 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.
