Andy Samberg's Fox Cop Show Has a Name: 'Brooklyn 99'

One of the most eagerly-awaited pilots this season for comedy fans has been an untitled Fox cop show that stars Andy Samberg and is co-created by Parks and Rec's Mike Schur. Now, it looks like the untitled series has a title: Brooklyn 99. USA Today was first to print the show's title last month. Co-created by Schur and Parks writer Dan Goor, Brooklyn 99 stars Samberg as the lead detective Jake Peralta, who watches over a diverse group of cops at a precinct at the edge of New York City. Terry Crews, Andre Braugher, Chelsea Peretti, Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz, and Joe Lo Truglio make up the rest of the cast of cops and precinct office workers. If Brooklyn 99 doesn't make it on the air this fall, I'm calling the real police.

    I hope it's like Barney Miller or the cop scenes from "So I Married An Axe Murderer". I knew a guy who was retired NYPD and he always said the Barney Miller was the most realistic cop show. Then I went and became a LEO and he was right.

      well, i'ts a purposely ridiculous comedy, so I doubt the priority would be realism…lol. It's on now, what do you think?

    According to Deadline.com, Fox is going crazy about Brooklyn 99. It appears that it is far and away their favorite pilot, which includes Dads and Murder Police both of which got straight to series deals.
