What is Reno 911! (TV) About?
Reno 911! is an American television series that combines the elements of comedy and mockumentary to lampoon law enforcement and reality police shows, most notably Cops. It portrays the fictional, exceedingly incompetent police officers of the Reno Sheriff's Department, situated in Reno, Nevada. The series is characterized by its partially improvised dialogue, offbeat humor, and unscripted moments, providing a comedic take on the officers' personal and professional lives. Often politically incorrect, the series provides a 'fly on the wall' experience as it follows these unconventional officers who frequently find themselves embroiled in absurd situations while responding to various calls and conducting patrols. The show features a dynamic cast of characters, each with their own quirks and comedic styles, contributing to the distinct comedic rhythm of the series. Reno 911! originally aired from 2003 to 2009 on Comedy Central and experienced a revival in 2020, continuing its legacy of humorous parody in the realm of law enforcement television.
The first episode of Reno 911! aired on July 23, 2003 and the most recent episode to air was on July 08, 2009.
