It looks like a sequel to “Reno 911!: Miami” is on the way over a decade after the Comedy Central series made the leap to the big screen.
Actress Niecy Nash, who plays Deputy Raineesha Williams in the series, attended the “Downsizing” premiere this week and says they’re trying to get the cast committed to filming in the Summer.
Also attending was Kerri Kenney, who co-created the series with Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant and co-stars as Deputy Trudy Wiegel. She says the gang is ready for a reunion of some kind:
“Last week, there was an email chain that went around saying, ‘Come on guys, let’s do another run!’ It’s really a matter of timing for us and when everybody is available. Niecy sent Tom and I a picture of a kiosk in a Walmart and I guess we’re big stocking stuffers this year because it was a display of our box set. We were like, ‘Maybe it’s time.'”
“Reno 911!: Miami” was shot for just $10 million, and grossed $22 million at the box officebefoe having a strong run on video. The series ran for 6 seasons and 88 episodes on Comedy Central from 2003 to 2009.
