RENO 911 JOINS SUPERSTATION WGN IN FALL 2007

NEW YORK, March 27, 2007 -Beginning this fall, Reno 911, will join Superstation WGN, the Tribune Broadcasting satellite and cable TV unit. The first three seasons of this half-hour comedy have been acquired for a two-year run. Reno 911 features the wacky experiences of seven members of the fictional Reno Sheriff's Department, led by Lt. Jim Dangle (Thomas Lennon).

The hit comedy, which began airing in 2003 and is distributed by MGM, will begin airing nationally on Superstation in Late Fringe, where it will run as part of a late night comedy block that includes successful comedies like Scrubs and Becker, as well as newcomer Corner Gas, Canada's #1 sitcom premiering on Superstation WGN this fall.

Nominated for GLAAD Media Award's Outstanding Comedy Series in 2004, only the basic plot elements of Reno 911 are scripted, with the dialogue improvised. The popularity of Reno 911 has transitioned to the big screen with the theatrical release of Reno 911: Miami last month, and the forthcoming DVD release of the film generating additional excitement for Reno 911.

"Our Late Fringe comedy block has been very popular among young males, and the addition of Reno 911 will continue to attract young viewers," said Bill Shaw, General Manager of Superstation WGN.
