Emmy Award winning Brooklyn Nine Nine on FOX
BROOKLYN NINE-NINE returns for its sophomore season this fall after winning this year’s Golden Globe Awards for Best Television Series – Comedy or Musical and Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Comedy or Musical (Andy Samberg). Series star Andre Braugher also recently earned an Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.
From Emmy Award-winning writer/producers Dan Goor and Michael Schur (“Parks and Recreation”), and starring Samberg and Braugher, BROOKLYN NINE-NINE is an ensemble comedy about a talented-but-carefree detective, a by-the-book police captain and their precinct colleagues. While based in the workplace, BROOKLYN NINE-NINE is not really about the job – it’s about the men and women behind the badge.
Season One ended with a surprising twist as Detective JAKE PERALTA (Samberg) was asked to go undercover for a major FBI investigation. He said his goodbyes to the precinct, and finally confessed his “romantic-styles” affection for Detective AMY SANTIAGO (Melissa Fumero), the unit’s honorary straight arrow. Jake is a gifted detective who has never had to work too hard or follow the rules too closely, perhaps because he has the best arrest record among his colleagues. That is, until CAPTAIN HOLT (Braugher) arrived as the precinct’s new by-the-book commanding officer. Captain Holt and Jake often butt heads over rules and regulations, but they have developed a strong and mutual respect for one another.
Holt’s next-in-command is Sergeant TERRY JEFFORDS (Terry Crews), a linebacker of a man, a father to twin baby girls and an unashamed minivan driver. Jeffords regained his confidence (and his license to carry a gun) after Holt helped him get over his fear of getting injured and not seeing his girls grow up.
Also working cases in Brooklyn’s 99th is Detective CHARLES BOYLE (Joe Lo Truglio), the precinct’s workhorse who idolizes Jake. Charles had long pined for the tough, sexy and scary-as-hell Detective ROSA DIAZ (Stephanie Beatriz), until he got engaged to someone else last season. Now with his wedding called off, Charles may have another shot with Rosa. That is, unless his shocking one-night stand with GINA LINETTI (Chelsea Peretti), the eccentric and self-absorbed civilian office manager, turns into something more. Rounding out the precinct’s staff are veteran officers Detective SCULLY (Joel McKinnon Miller) and Detective HITCHCOCK (Dirk Blocker). Unproductive and inept, the pair may not solve many cases, but they make an amazing pot of coffee.
