Nick SwardsonWhile Terry isn't going to be cuffed on 'Reno 911!' any longer, the comedian who plays him is getting his own Comedy Central series. A sketch comedy show featuring Nick Swardson will debut next year, according to Comedy Central.

"I'm very excited to be working with Comedy Central," said Swardson in a press release. "They are great people who understand me creatively. They also are very good looking ... a lot of 8 and 9's in the office; guys are probably in the 4's."

The half-hour series will include Swardson's digital shorts, man-on-the-street segments and irreverent animation, including his "Gay Robot" series, which follows the life of a gay robot and his frat-boy friends.Nick SwardsonWhile Terry isn't going to be cuffed on 'Reno 911!' any longer, the comedian who plays him is getting his own Comedy Central series.

Swardson has also appeared on 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,' 'Late Night with Conan O'Brien,' and 'The Late Show with David Letterman' and in the movies 'Blades of Glory,' 'I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry,' 'You Don't Mess with the Zohan' and the 'The House Bunny.'

"We love Nick at Comedy Central and even more importantly, our audience loves Nick," said Lauren Corrao, president of original programming and development at Comedy Central. "We've seen it in his movies, his stand-up, with his 'Reno 911!' character 'Terry,' and in the work he's done developing Gay Robot. We can't wait to expand his creative voice into a sketch series."

Terry is Reno's most troublesome roller-skating homosexual prostitute. The show 'Reno: 911!' ended its six-year run this summer.
