Spike TV greenlights comedy pilot 'Playing With Guns'

Spike TV has given a greenlight to a comedy pilot about slacker suburban cops.

"Playing With Guns" stars Danny Masterson ("The 70's Show") and Joey Kern ("Super Troopers") as childhood best friends who become police officers in their hometown for the everyday perks.

The project is produced by Varsity Pictures’ Brian Robbins, who is also set to direct, and Sharla Sumpter Bridgett and Lionsgate.

The pilot will shoot in North Carolina later this month.
