Reno 911! Guys Headed to Space


This morning, FX announced that Reno 911!'s Tom Lennon and Ben Garant will produce a pilot for U.S.S. Alabama, a part-scripted, part-improvised comedy that "takes place in space with a crew of space-farers that are about as smart as the Reno! cops," according to FX president and GM John Landgraf. Lennon and Garant will also act in the pilot, which, if picked up to series, would debut sometime next year. Meanwhile, Landgraf also gave Louis CK a reason to be momentarily happy: His new comedy, Louie, has been given a second-season order. It returns next summer, which leaves producers plenty of time to line up the now-mandatory guest appearance from Betty White.
