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".
In the Season 5 premiere, "The Big House Pt.1", Jake and Rosa assimilate to their new lives behind bars, but both are coping in very different ways.
Jake bonds with his cellmate, Caleb (guest star Tim Meadows), and is forced to join a prison gang led by notorious inmate Romero (guest star Lou Diamond Phillips), in order to gain his protection.
Meanwhile, in the women's prison, Rosa puts Holt and Terry to the test by having them complete outrageous favours for her. Back in the precinct, Amy and Charles are doing all they can to exonerate their colleagues.
In the second episode, "The Big House Pt.2", when the warden (guest star Toby Huss) asks Jake to investigate Romero's (guest star Lou Diamond Phillips) drug smuggling operation, Jake and Caleb (guest star Tim Meadows) find themselves caught between the loyalty Jake has sworn to both of them.
Meanwhile, Amy is offered a deal by a local mobster who claims he can prove that Hawkins (guest star Gina Gershon) is guilty, but Holt and the rest of the gang think they have a safer plan.
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).
