Netflix is in talks with "Reno 911" producers about reviving the canceled Comedy Central comedy, reports New York Magazine’s Vulture blog.
"It’s still a long shot, but there’s a ray of hope," the story notes. Comedy Central still owns the copyright, two years after the show was canceled, and would have to agree to let new episodes air on Netflix, the piece says.
Talks with the show’s creators are just starting, and their manager said it’s too early to say whether they’re interested in returning to the program.
Whether the talks materialize into something concrete or not, "One thing is clear, though: Services like Netflix and Hulu are sure to continue to perform CPR on canceled cult TV series as more and more of their business depends on content not available elsewhere," the story points out. "Already, 60 percent of the content streamed on Netflix is TV shows."
