FOX has set Tuesdays at 8:30 pm to air its new cop comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine, this fall.
Andre Braugher and Terry Crews co-star, alongside Andy Samberg in the project from Mike Schur/Dan Goor, directed by the co-directors of 21 Jump Street (the movie) – Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
The comedy centers on a diverse group of detectives in a New York City police precinct.
Samberg plays the lead detective, while Braugher is Captain Holt, described as a 30-year veteran of the New York City police force. Holt has finally gotten his own command and he’s not going to let anyone, especially Samberg’s character, mess it up.
And Terry Crews plays a character named Terry Jeffords, described as “the no-nonsense but father-like sergeant who runs the detective squad.“
Braugher has had a tough time in TV land. Let’s hope this one lasts longer than the last new series he starred in, did.
A first trailer for the series has debuted and is embedded below:
