"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" (TV show) on FOX is a single-camera ensemble comedy from the Emmy Award-winning writers/producers of "Parks and Recreation." Starring Emmy Award winners Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher, the series is about what happens when a detective who doesn't take anything seriously gets a new "by-the-book" boss who wants him to grow up and respect the badge.

Detective Jake Peralta (Samberg) is a good enough cop that he's never had to work that 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), who reminds this hotshot cop to respect the badge. Jake may have collared more criminals, but Detective Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero, "One Life to Live," "Gossip Girl") is close behind, and she's keenly aware of how many arrests she needs to close the gap. Amy grew up with seven brothers who were all cops. She's the first girl in the family to put on a police uniform, and suffice it to say: she's extremely competitive ... about everything.

Also working cases in Brooklyn's 99th precinct is Sergeant Terry Jeffords (Terry Crews, "Bridesmaids," "Everybody Hates Chris"), a linebacker of a man who's lost his nerve, not because he's a wimp, but because a year ago, his wife had twin baby girls — Cagney and Lacey — and he can't imagine not seeing them grow up. Detective Charles Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio, "Wreck-It Ralph," "Superbad"), who idolizes Jake, is the precinct's workhorse; he's not that brilliant, he's not physically gifted, but he tries harder than anyone else. Charles pines for 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. She's vocally opinionated about everything. Cleaning up everyone's mess is Gina Linetti (Chelsea Peretti, "Parks and Recreation," "Kroll Show"), the eccentric, civilian office manager who somehow gets involved in everyone's business.

Together, these tightly knit — or is it tightly wound? — cops 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 hitting on each other — all while protecting the fine people of Brooklyn.

The cast includes Andy Samberg as Jake Peralta, Andre Braugher as Ray Holt, Terry Crews as Terry Jeffords, Melissa Fumero as Amy Santiago, Joe Lo Truglio as Charles Boyle, Stephanie Beatriz as Rosa Diaz, and Chelsea Peretti as Gina.

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is produced by Universal Television. The series is created and written by Dan Goor ("Late Night with Conan O'Brien," "Parks and Recreation") and Michael Schur ("The Office," "Parks and Recreation"). 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").
