Among the new comedies headed to Fox this fall is Brooklyn Nine-Nine, a single-camera comedy from Dan Goor and Michael Schur, which stars Saturday Night Live's Andy Samberg and takes place in a Brooklyn police precinct. The trailer above gives us a good idea of what this series is all about, centering on Samberg's goof-off character, Jake Peralta, a cop used to bending the rules and having some fun. But that changes when Andre Braugher's Ray Holt arrives and puts his foot down.
Melissa Fumero plays Amy Santiago, a fellow cop who has collared nearly as many criminals as Peralta, and she's looking to close that gap. Also among the cast are Terry Crews, Joe Lo Truglio, Stephanie Beatriz and Chelsea Peretti.
The trailer looks funny from the start, and if Parks and Recreation is any indication, Brooklyn Nine-Nine may need some time to develop its characters and really grow into its humor. With that in mind, I'm optimistic that this one will be a keeper. There's definite potential for great comedic chemistry between the goofy Andy Samberg and the serious and intimidating Andre Braugher. So we'll have to wait and see how this one looks when it premieres this fall.
Fox has Brooklyn Nine-Nine set to air on Tuesday nights along with fellow newcomer comedy Dads. Both shows will air ahead of returning comedies New Girl and The Mindy Project. View the full Fox fall 2013-2014 line-up of new and returning series here.
