Watch Reno 911!


Improvised comedy television series Reno 911! has the basic format of a reality cop show. Its primary focus is the bumbling Reno Sheriff's Department in Reno, Nevada (not to be confused with Reno Police Department, or Washoe County Sheriff's Office), and the absurd citizens they encounter.

Reno Sheriff's Department's highest ranking deputy is mustachioed Lieutenant Dangle, who wears very short shorts, insists he's not gay, and tries his hardest to keep the rest of the gang under control. Beneath Lt. Dangle are a host of deputies, each with unusual quirks. Among the deputies are Trudy Wiegel, a very unstable woman, Raineesha Williams, who is overly proud of her overly large posterior, and Travis Junior, the NASCAR-loving redneck.

The duties of the deputies often lead them to strip clubs, bars, and civilian houses where they attempt to resolve domestic disputes, make arrests for petty theft, and execute unsuccessful drug busts.
