Hot From FOX…”Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “New Girl” Meet in New York

Premiering on Tuesday, October 11 on FOX is a special night of comedy.  Two worlds collide this fall when characters from “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “New Girl” meet each other in the Big Apple!  The one-hour crossover event kicks off with “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) and concludes with “New Girl” (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT). Additional details regarding the crossover event will be announced in upcoming weeks.

Dan Goor, co-creator and executive producer of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” comments:

‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ crossing over with ‘New Girl’ is very exciting, but (and this is supposed to be a secret) it’s just the first step. Stay tuned for our two casts to do a soulful R&B number on “Empire, co-anchor the ‘FOX 10 O’clock News’ and connect for a touchdown on ‘FOX NFL Sunday’. But in all seriousness, we’re all huge fans of ‘New Girl’ here at the Nine-Nine, and we’re excited to see our characters interact and to work with their incredible writers and producers. And also to see what their craft services are like, compared to ours.


Elizabeth Meriwether, creator and executive producer of “New Girl’ adds:

The crossover episode has historically been the artistic high point of any show that has dared to attempt it.  Maybe you remember ‘Blackout Thursday’ on NBC, or even further back the infamous ‘Alf’/‘Gilligan’s Island’ crossover of the late 1980s. ‘New Girl’ and ’Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ will proudly and humbly go where few shows have gone since the 1990s. We know we have big shoes to fill, and we look forward to disappointing everyone. There’s a 50% chance Alf will also be in both episodes. But there’s also a 50% chance that is a lie.


Catch up with these two veteran comedies as season four of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and season six of “New Girl” return to the air on Tuesday, September 20 on FOX.  In the season premiere of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), Jake (Andy Samberg) and Holt (Emmy Award nominee Andre Braugher) remain in Florida under the Witness Protection Program, with only one human link to their regular lives – U.S. Marshall Karen Haas (guest star Maya Rudolph, “Maya and Marty”).

Stay tuned to FOX because immediately following, on “New Girl” (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT), Jess (Zooey Deschanel) faces Nick (Jake Johnson) for the first time after realizing she has feelings for him, while Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Cece (Hannah Simone) begin a frustrating hunt for their first house.
