Aside from Samberg and Braugher, the series also stars Terry Crews as Sergeant Terry Jeffords, Melissa Fumero as Detective Amy Santiago, Stephanie Beatriz as Detective Rosa Diaz, Chelsea Peretti as Gina Linetti and Joe Lo Truglio as Detective Charles Boyle.
“Brooklyn Nine Nine” is written and created by Dan Goor and Michael Schur, who both worked on the series “Parks and Recreation.” The two also serve as executive producers along with David Miner, who worked on “30 Rock.”
The show is currently on a brief hiatus for two weeks on FOX, as the baseball series is still on. It aired its Halloween episode last Oct. 19, 2014. “Brooklyn Nine Nine,” however, will be back for fresh new episodes this November.
