Several new promos for upcoming cop comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine have been released and in them, we see the impact that the new captain at the 99th Precinct has on Detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg), a skilled but ultimately coddled member of the force whose immature behavior has been enabled due to his sterling arrest record. However, once the 99th welcomes Ray Holt (Andre Braugher) as their new captain, things change and Jake may be forced to grow up after all.
Filling out the rest of the Precinct are Melissa Fumero (One Life to Live) as Detective Amy Santiago, Jake’s extremely competitive partner who isn’t happy to be paired up with someone so lackadaisical about their profession; Terry Crews (Everybody Hates Chris) as Sergeant Terry Jeffords, former badass of the squad who has pulled back on his case load and the amount of danger he puts himself in ever since his wife gave birth; Joe Lo Truglio (Superbad) as Detective Charles Boyle, far and away the hardest working cop at the 99th, though he isn’t the smartest, most physically fit, or bravest of the bunch; Stephanie Beatriz (Short Term 12) as Detective Rosa Diaz, the tough and rather opinionated object of Charles’ desire; and Chelsea Peretti (Kroll Show) as Gina Linetti, the busybody office manager.
Created by Dan Goor and Michael Schur (Parks and Recreation), the series premiere of Brooklyn Nine-Nine is set to air Tuesday, September 17th at 8:30 on FOX as a part of the revamped comedy bloc. You can check out the rest of FOX’s premiere dates here, as well as the network’s fall 2013 schedule here.
