MGM, New Line Television and Comedy Central announced today that two of the cable network's most popular shows, RENO 911!
and Chappelle's Show
, will be the first programs to be syndicated by MGM under the new strategic relationship with New Line.
"RENO 911!" is a half-hour comedy about cops patrolling Reno, Nevada. The series, now in its fourth season, is a hilarious take on the traditional cop drama with soap opera-like twists and turns.
The Emmy nominated "Chappelle's Show" takes comedian Dave Chappelle's
own personal joke book and brings it to life, with episodes consisting of sketches, man-on-the-street pieces and pop culture parodies introduced by the comedian in a stand-up format in front of a studio audience. Chappelle's unique point-of-view on the world provides a hilarious, defiant and sometimes dangerous look at American culture, including music, movies, television, advertising, current events and everyday life situations.
