Mustaches are about to put Tacoma on the TV comedy map. “Tacoma FD” is a new half-hour sitcom that premieres March 28 on the TruTV network. The 10-episode comedy was created by and stars Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme — two of the Broken Lizard comedy troupe members who created the “Super Trooper” movies. Their latest, released in 2018, grossed $30 million. The new sitcom is in the same style as those movies, just toned down a bit for television. Lemme and Heffernan will be in Tacoma March 28 for the premiere. “Tacoma FD” takes place in Tacoma, Washington — the rainiest city in America where firefighters have a lot of down time because fires go out before they get to them.
That free time is generally spent involved in hijinks.
