City of Reno Out to Save ‘Reno 911’

Aug 21, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The city that was both made famous and mocked by Comedy Central’s “Reno 911!” has come to the show’s aid after news that is was canceled.

The city launched saveRENO911.com Aug. 14, less than 24 hours after actor/writer Thomas Lennon announced via Twiiter that the show had been canceled.

A total of 420 fans have signed the online petition on the site to save “Reno911.” Another 587 Facebook fans and 165 followers have also joined the struggle to save the show.

“We hope the petition results in the show getting picked up by another network, and that they film the show here instead of the non-descript valleys of southern California,” says Ellen Oppenheim, president and CEO of the Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority.
