After 11 years off the air, Reno 911! is coming back for an all-new season. However, the show won’t be arriving in the form of 22-minute episodes like when it was airing on Comedy Central. Instead, the forthcoming bite-sized entertainment subscription service Quibi is reviving the series with episodes arriving in roughly 10-minute increments. But given the nature of the series that follows bumbling, quarreling cops as they try to keep the streets safe from nefarious and oddball offenders, Reno 911! could thrive in this kind of environment. Watch the new Reno 911 trailer to see for yourself. Read More »

On the red carpet at PaleyFest, we got to speak with Scream Queens producer Brad Falchuk before his panel with the cast. Season two of Scream Queens will move from the sorority house to a hospital, but any of the returning cast are reprising their roles as the same characters. It’s not like American Horror Story, where the cast plays new characters every year.
“I describe it more as a horror movie sequel as opposed to an anthology,” Falchuk told /Film. “So you have the first Friday the 13th, the second Friday the 13th, or Halloween. You have characters that bleed in through, literally bleed through, and they go through different horrible adventures. As opposed to just changing up the characters. We just have more to say with these characters.” Read More »
Improvisational comedy has always annoyed me (I liked Borat, but who didn’t?). Unlike other forms of comedy, the moments in between the laughs are squiggle in you seat bad. When it doesn’t work, it REALLY doesn’t work. I’ve never tried watching Reno 911! on tv, nor did I ever have the urge to. So I’m probably the worst audience for a feature film spin-off movie. While entering the theater I realized there was a Zodiac screening two theaters over from me (which press wasn’t invited to). I’ve wanted to see David Fincher’s San Francisco serial killer thriller ever since it was announced. I sat patiently waiting for the movie to begin. The voice inside my head kept shouting at me “Zodiac is two theaters over, and you’re stuck in sketchville”. The college aged kids around me laughing. The radio station street team making their announcements. They can’t find the microphone so they try yelling over the loud music that’s playing in the background. All of it to annoy me. Why wasn’t I invited to Zodiac? To say the deck was stacked against me liking this film is an understatement. The lights went out, and somehow the voice faded into the background. I’m reluctant to admit this, but Reno 911!: Miami isn’t half bad.
