FOX’s ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Gets Full Season Order, Post Super Bowl Slot
We’re not sure what it was about today that had the major networks promoting and canceling series left and right, but following CBS’ full season orders, NBC’s cancellation and ‘Community’ spree, FOX has given a full-season order to the Andy Samberg-starring cop comedy ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine,’ as well as the coveted Super Bowl slot.
“It’s exciting to see that both critics and fans love Brooklyn Nine-Nine as much as we do,” said Fox entertainment chairman Reilly. “With Andy and Andre [Braugher] out in front of this incredible ensemble, it feels like this show is going to be around for a long time.” The series was co-created by ‘Parks and Recreation‘ team Mike Schur and Dan Goor.
‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ has by no means been the highest-viewed new comedy of the fall 2013 season, but ranks unanimously among the best rated-new offerings from critics. Placing it behind ‘New Girl‘ for the February 2 post Super Bowl slot should also help draw some eyes to the comedy.
For those not yet clued in, Samberg’s ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ follows a diverse group of detectives in a precinct at the very edge of New York City. In addition to Samberg as the lead, ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ boasts among its cast ‘The Newsroom‘ star Terry Crews, ‘Last Resort‘s’ Andre Braugher, Melissa Fumero and ‘Community‘ and ‘How I Met Your Mother‘ guest Joe Lo Truglio.
