Recently at the 2006 Comic-Con International we had a chance to sit in on a panel with Thomas Lennon and Ben Garrant. The film they were promoting Balls of Fury, sees a former ping-pong champ who is brought in by the government to infiltrate a high-stakes underworld tournament and bring down the organizer, a feared crime boss. This film hits theaters on January 28, 2007.

Best known for their work creating the hugely popular Reno 911!, Lennon and Garrant offered some information that The State, an earlier show that played from 1993-1995 will in fact finally be coming to DVD or iTunes at some point later in the year.

Apparently, Garrant and Lennon had wanted to release the show sooner but legal wranglings with MTV had gotten in the way.
