NBC picks up comedy pilot
'The Strip' is from 'Reno 911's' co-creators/stars
The pilot pickup season kicked into high gear Tuesday.
The project, from UMS, centers on a former child star (Lennon) who now owns a Hooters-type restaurant in a strip mall on the outskirts of Vegas. Garant is set to play a supporting role in the pilot he and Lennon co-wrote together.
The premise of the show, produced by UMS, had been kept under wraps since it was set up at NBC in October with a sizable commitment.
