NEW YORK, June 22, 2009 — In season six, two new cops join the “RENO 911!” squad: Sergeant Jack Declan (Ian Roberts) the macho, by-the-book cop’s cop and Deputy Franky Rizzo (Joe Lo Truglio), a big city cop and the opposite of Declan who not only doesn’t play by the rules, he hasn’t even read the rules. The sixth season included guest star Jonah Hill resolving last season’s cliffhanger as to which Reno deputies survived the horrible accident at the taco stand, the deputies getting a free vacation to Thailand, Lt. Dangle hosting a murder mystery dinner and the deputies hiring Reno’s finest director to help them make a new recruitment commercial.
