Niecy Nash to Play an Aspiring Police Officer in Fox Pilot ‘The Enforcers’
Reno 911! alum Niecy Nash is going back to her police officer comedy roots. Deadline reports that Nash has signed on to star in a single-cam buddy comedy pilot at Fox called The Enforcers, which centers on two “wildly different single mothers … with dreams of being police officers who find themselves partnered as inspectors in the Code Enforcement Department. Instead of fighting crime, they have been relegated to handling petty code breaking, like noise complaints, tree trimming and water misuse.” Nash will play one of the single mothers named M.J., “a recently divorced single mom of two kids who, after struggling through a variety of odd jobs to provide for her children, is thrilled to land the job of ‘code cop,’ hoping it will bring her a sense of legitimacy. It does not.” Since Reno 911!, Nash has also appeared on The Mindy Project, Getting On, The Soul Man, Scream Queens, and most recently Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
