The UK premiere broadcast rights for Brooklyn Nine-Nine have been nabbed by Channel 4 for their youth-aimed network E4.The single-camera ensemble comedy series stars Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher. Brooklyn Nine-Nine is about what happens when an immature wise-cracking, yet surprisingly talented detective meets his new no-nonsense Commanding Officer …and his match.
An irreverent police comedy that’s not really about the job, the brand-new 22-part series follows 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.
I’m delighted to bring NBCUniversal’s laugh out loud comedy about a motley crew of cops to the UK. Brooklyn Nine-Nine will be a real treat for E4 audiences when it launches here in the new year. – Channel 4 Chief Creative Officer Jay Hunt
Brooklyn Nine-Nine will debut in the UK on E4 in January 2014.
