The War Next Door is an American comedy series created by Will McRobb and Chris Viscardi. The show used non-canon humor as one of the two main characters dies at the end of each episode, only to reappear alive the following episode as if nothing had happened. The show ran for only 8 out of 13 episodes and was broadcast on USA Network from July 23 until September 24, 2000.


Kennedy Smith, a super secret agent, just wants to retire. Unfortunately, his seemingly indestructible nemesis, Kriegman, wants to make his life hell and so moves into the suburbs and becomes Smith's next-door neighbor and evil opponent.
