Vampires, Robots And S.H.I.E.L.D Oh My: 10 New TV Shows We Can't Wait To Watch
Premieres: Tuesday, September 17 at 8:30 p.m. ET on FOX
Created by: Michael Schur and Dan Goor
Starring: Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Melissa Fumero and Terry Crews
A few years into the increasingly successful run of NBC’s The Office, showrunner (and adapter for American television) Greg Daniels co-created Parks and Recreation with Michael Schur, one of his writers (and Mose) from the hit mockumentary series. And with the sixth season of the ‘sort-of-spin-off’ starting this fall, Schur has now teamed up with Dan Goor, one of his writers, to co-create Fox’s new cop comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine. If the Schur-Goor series set in the police department is even half as good as Parks and Recreation, audiences are in for something special. Since the talent behind-the-scenes wasn’t impressive enough (that’s two Emmys a piece for the writer-creators), 21 Jump Street’s Phil Lord and Chris Miller were also brought in to direct the pilot.
Of course, the incredible talent in front of the camera also deserve their fair share of the hype with Andy Samberg (who joined SNL the season after Schur left there for The Office) leading a really funny cast. And the great Andre Braugher. Not saying that he’s not funny, just the esteemed actor might be better known for his more serious work like Homicide: Life on the Street. Back to the comedy. The supporting cast includes; Terry Crews, who’s amazing in everything from The Longest Yard to The Newsroom, The State crew’s Jo Lo Truglio and stand-up comedian Chelsea Peretti. It’s one of the few fall previews with consistent laughs, not just trailer moments. You should all book Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
