If you love and miss Comedy Central's Reno 911! you can't miss tonight's episode of @midnight, which features @midnight's own co-executive producers Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant alongside their former 911! costars Kerri Kenney-Silver, Carlos Alazraqui, and Cedric Yarbrough all competing in character. In the meantime, here's a quick sneak peek with Wiegel, Junior, and Dangle playing a game of "Lesser Known Police Codes."
Best known for starring in and co-creating comedy nerd favorites like The State and Reno 911!, Tom Lennon is acting on a different kind of show this season: a multi-cam network sitcom on primetime TV. He's playing the villain on Sean Saves the World, NBC's new Sean Hayes comedy, which just premiered last week. As Hayes's dastardly mustachioed boss Hunter, he's one of the most deliberately unlikable and evil characters on primetime TV.
I recently had the chance to talk to Tom Lennon about Sean Saves the World, playing an bad guy, and the Baywatch movie he's writing with Ben Garant.
Robert Ben Garant will be joined by his partner in crime, fellow The State/Reno 911! alum Thomas Lennon, as his co-director for a comedy remake of the cheesy 90s lifeguard soap Baywatch. This is the silliest project Lennon and Garant have ever worked on, and keep in mind that Lennon wrote “Porcupine Racetrack” and the duo was previously developing a “leprechaun action comedy.”
