Quibi Renews Reno 911!, Reveals Wireless Trailer


Quibi and Comedy Central Productions have announced that Reno 911 is set to return for an additional season, while the short-form streaming platform has also revealed the Wireless trailer.

For the new season of Reno 911!, co-creators Robert Ben Garant, Thomas Lennon and Kerri Kenney-Silver are set to write and star.

The Reno 911! announcement comes on the heels of 13 new episodes, which are currently releasing on Quibi, and two Emmy nominations for Outstanding Short From Comedy or Drama Series and Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series (Kerri Kenney-Silver).

“We are thrilled about the pick-up, but we’re even more thrilled about getting to leave our living rooms for the first time in 5 months,” said series co-creators Thomas, Ben and Kerri.

Reno 911! was recently called “the most radical, subversive cop comedy in history” — unlike the deputies of the Reno Sheriff’s Department, in Season 8 the show’s creators aren’t afraid to go anywhere or tackle anything.

Reno 911! is one of the top scripted series on Quibi, remaining a top trending show on the platform since its debut on May 4. The first season on Quibi is comprised of 25 new episodes in total.

Also coming to Quibi on September 14 is the thriller Wireless, starring Tye Sheridan and from executive producer Steven Soderbergh. The cast includes Lukas Gage, Francesca Reale, Mace Coronel, Sydney Park, Andie MacDowell, and Eric Dane as well.

On a sparsely traveled road deep in the Colorado mountains, college student Andy Braddock (Sheridan) drives to a New Years Eve party to try to rekindle a relationship with his ex-girlfriend.

Distracted by his phone, Andy collides with a snowbank and hurtles into a ravine. Wounded and alone, Andy turns to his quickly dying cell for rescue, but help is far from a phone call away…

From Soderbergh comes a survival thriller like no other, as the viewer takes the story into their own hands. Two narratives play out simultaneously: watch horizontally for a cinematic view; twist vertically to experience Andy’s phone as your own, as he fights to stay alive.

Directed by Zach Wechter from a script by Jack Seidman and Wechter, Wireless is also executive produced by Michael Sugar, Zach Wechter and Jack Seidman (Pickpocket); Cathy Konrad (Treeline Film); Danny Sherman (Thruline Entertainment); and Ben Silverman, Howard Owens, Rodney Ferrell, and Greg Lipstone (Propagate).

The producers are Christian Heuer (Alpen Pictures), Isabel San Vargas (Propagate), and Mike Glasz (Pickpocket).
