Premiering on Comedy Central back in 2003, viewers followed police officers in Reno. It was a mockumentary style show and it helped create some of the best GIF’s that are still being used to this day. If you haven’t seen the show before, imagine a wild silly version of the hit reality show Cops. This satirical show was mostly improvised by the amazing cast and had a huge following. It ran for 6 seasons and spawn a movie titled ‘Reno 911: Miami.’

What makes this reboot different is how short the episodes will be. Quibi is an upcoming short-form video platform that could be easily watched on the go. Reno 911! Isn’t the only show or movie that Quibi is bringing back. What makes Quibi different is that their content is specifically made for your phone.
Some of the movies that will be getting a television version revival are ‘How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days,’ ‘Varsity Blues’ and ‘The Fugitive.’ Some of the other shows they are being revived are ‘Legend of the Hidden Temple’ and ‘Punk’d.’ They also have some original content coming out in the next few months.

When Johnson (Wendi McLendon-Covey) pulls a guy over for swerving a little bit, she gets surprised by one of his talents. When she walks up to the car, she asks him if he could step out and obliges. The man tells her that he has not been drinking at all. When he’s finally out of the car, she asks him to do the standard drunk test where he has to touch his nose, etc. She then asks him to recite the alphabet backward from Z to A. He starts to walk the line but she asks him to add a little pizazz to it. It escalates when she asks him to do a small dance number. What makes this scene so funny was because he was a very good dancer. He even added to her routine before mistakenly admitting he was drunk.
Williams (Niecy Nash) and Wiegel (Kerri Kenney-Silver) show up at a crime scene and they are met with a hypothetical criminal. He claims that he called them to report a crime that he did not do. If you’ve ever seen this scene you would know that the hypothetical criminal is Keegan Key. The criminal then explains that he snuck in a car when the window was down because he needed a place to sleep. He then says that he found a 23-year-old male’s head in the trunk. He asks that if he hypnotically did the crime, what would happen to him. They did a whole reenactment which was hilarious. In the end, the officers arrest him. All these clips can be found on YouTube.
