LOS ANGELES, Jan. 5 (UPI) -- Comedy Central's "Chappelle's Show," the U.S. hit that made Dave Chappelle a star, will air as a syndicated series this fall through distribution by MGM.

Jim Packer, president of worldwide television distribution for MGM, told Los Angeles based TVWeek.com on Friday his team is looking forward to handling "Chappelle's Show" and another Comedy Central show "Reno 911!" Packer says the shows are "two of Comedy Central's top rated series."

"Chappelle's Show" aired for two seasons beginning in 2003 and became the No. 1 show in its time slot for television programs among men between the ages of 18-34. Dave Chappelle abruptly left the show and a $50 million contract in 2005 and the season wrapped up with three final episodes.

"Reno911!" begins a fifth season this year and has been adapted for the screen in the film "Reno911!:Miami" scheduled for release in February.
