About the Show

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is an American television sitcom created by Dan Goor and Michael Schur which follows an immature New York City Police Department detective and his relationship with his strict new, no-nonsense captain, who tells him that he must grow up and "respect the badge".

Detective Jake Peralta (Samberg) is gifted enough that he's never had to work too hard or follow the rules too closely. Perhaps because he has the best arrest record among his colleagues, he's been enabled – if not indulged – throughout his entire career.

That is, until the precinct gets a new commanding officer, Captain Ray Holt (Braugher). Captain Holt believes in rules and regulations, two concepts that have long been overlooked by the detectives in the 99th precinct.

Jake's colleagues are a brilliant and capable bunch, but lack a certain level of discipline and leadership. They compete with each other, annoy each other, gossip and flirt, but at the end of the day, they have each other's backs.

As the precinct's honorary straight arrow, Detective Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero, Gossip Girl) is thrilled with the leadership change. Having grown up with seven brothers, Amy is extremely competitive...about everything. She is hell-bent on collaring more criminals than Jake, and she's keenly aware of how many arrests she needs to close the gap.

Holt's next-in-command is Sergeant Terry Jeffords (Terry Crews, Everybody Hates Chris), a linebacker of a man who's lost his nerve after his wife had twin baby girls – Cagney and Lacey – and he lives in fear of not seeing them grow up.

Also working cases in Brooklyn's 99th is Detective Charles Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio, Wreck-It Ralph), who idolizes Jake and is the precinct's workhorse; he's not brilliant, he's not physically gifted, but he tries harder than anyone else.

Charles pines for the vocally opinionated Detective Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz, Modern Family, The Closer), with whom he stands no chance at all. Rosa is simultaneously tough, sexy and scary as hell.

Meddling in everyone's affairs is Gina Linetti (Chelsea Peretti, Parks and Recreation), the eccentric and self-absorbed civilian office manager.

Together, they interrogate suspects, arrest perps and solve murders. But, ultimately, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a workplace comedy that's not really about the job. It's about the men and women behind the badge – singing karaoke, grabbing a beer, and dabbling in each other's personal lives – all while protecting the fine people of Brooklyn.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is produced by Universal Television, 3 Arts Entertainment and Fremulon. The series is created and written by Dan Goor (Parks and Recreation, Late Night with Conan O'Brien) and Michael Schur (Parks and Recreation, The Office). The series is executive-produced by Goor, Schur and David Miner (30 Rock).

The pilot was directed by the team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller (21 Jump Street, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs).
