Brooklyn Nine-Nine Scores Touchdown, Snags Full-Season Pick-Up and Post-Super Bowl Berth
Not only did Fox pick up the Andy Samberg-fronted police satire for a full season, but the network announced that the rookie series will join New Girl in a “special one-hour comedy event” after Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday, Feb. 2, 2014.
The police satire, starring Samberg, Terry Crews and Andre Braugher, drew a solid 6 million viewers and a 2.5 demo rating in its debut last month.
“It’s exciting to see that both critics and fans love Brooklyn Nine-Nine as much as we do,” said Fox prez Kevin Reilly. “With Andy and Andre out in front of this incredible ensemble, it feels like this show is going to be around for a long time.”Follow @MichaelAusiello
