The NBC Pilot by the Reno 911! Creators Keeps Getting Cooler

Last month, NBC made the wise choice to order a comedy pilot from Reno 911! creators Tom Lennon and R. Ben Garant called The Strip, about a former child star (Lennon) who owns a Hooters-esque eatery in a strip mall outside Las Vegas. Today comes further exciting casting news: Cedric Yarbrough (from Reno 911!) will play a bar regular, and comedians Natasha Leggero and Dave Holmes will play a waitress and a gay Christian bookstore owner, respectively.
