He might be tolerable if he's not on something directly involving Adam Sandler.

TCA: Andy Samberg, Producers Say Fox’s ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Is No Spoof Or Satire, But A Workplace Comedy
By THE DEADLINE TEAM

Today at TCA, cast and producers of Fox’s new cop comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine said they will tap into their pool of funny friends as cameo guest stars —especially star Andy Samberg’s pals from SNL (Fred Armisen has a cameo in the pilot).

But after the panel, creator/executive producer Michael Schur said audiences should not expect cast members of his other comedy, Parks And Recreation, to appear on Brooklyn Nine-Nine cast anytime soon. “Nick Offerman has already volunteered” to appear, Schur said, but he and fellow creator/EP Dan Goor (also a Parks And Rec producer/writer) wants to let the Brooklyn cast “get on track” before trying any cross-pollination.

Also after the panel, Schur also described the departure of Parks And Rec‘s Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones as amicable. “Nobody screamed and yelled and said ‘I quit,’ ” he said. “The real headline is: Everybody’s happy.”

Schur and Goor were asked whether they expected this season to be Parks And Rec’s last. The pair did not confirm or deny. Goor would only say that the writers will proceed as though there is no end in sight. “We leave everything on the field,” Goor said. “We are not slowing the DNA of the show.”

Back to the new show: Schur, Goor and Samberg (who is both starring and producing) said the comedy would not be a spoof or a satire, but a workplace comedy. Also Samberg’s Det. Jake Peralta will be a screwball who is still a real good cop. Schur said that comedies like Naked Gun and Police Squad make it tough to explain that to a roomful of “38-year-old comedy writers” that the mold is more Barney Miller than Naked Gun.

The producers said that important crimes will be solved, but episodes will have equal focus on personal lives and workplace issues. The series also stars Andre Braugher, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Chelsea Peretti, Stephanie Beatriz and Joe Lo Truglio, all of whom were on the panel. The producers said they wanted the cast to reflect the ethnic diversity of a real Brooklyn precinct office.

Samberg called working with a script instead of the SNL improv model “liberating and freeing … to just be handed 25 great jokes is the best feeling a comedian could have.” Commenting on his career trajectory, the performer said: “I don’t generally try to think about trajectory because every time I’ve tried to do that it has backfired, like, miserably for me.” He said that, as a huge fan of Parks And Rec and Amy Poehler, he knew he was going to say yes to the new series.

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Enlists Kid Cudi for Guest Gig (Exclusive)
4:06 PM PDT 8/14/2013 by Lesley Goldberg

The rapper-actor will play a jewel thief on the Andy Samberg comedy from the creators of "Parks and Recreation."

Fox's upcoming Brooklyn Nine-Nine comedy is already making good on its promise to enlist high-profile guest stars.

Rapper-actor Kid Cudi (aka Scott Mescudi) has booked a guest turn on the freshman comedy from Parks and Recreation duo Mike Schur and Dan Goor, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

In the comedy about a diverse group of detectives at a New York precinct, Cudi will play Dustin Whitman, an ex-con that Jake (Andy Samberg) is convinced robbed a jewelry store. He's currently slated to appear in one episode early in the season.

Producers noted during their time at the Television Critics Association's recent summer press tour that Brooklyn lends itself well to high-profile comedy guest stars, with Cudi becoming the latest to nab a role on the buzzy series. (SNL's Fred Armisen also appears briefly in the pilot.)

Cudi's small-screen credits include How to Make It in America andThe Cleveland Show. He's repped by WME and Leverage Management.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine premieres Tuesday, Sept. 17 on Fox.

Exclusive: Fox's Brooklyn Nine-Nine Opens Door to Andy Richter Guest Appearance
BY MEGAN MASTERS

Brooklyn Nine-Nine will briefly control Andy Richter‘s universe this fall.

TVLine has learned exclusively that the Conan sidekick will guest-star in an early episode of the new Fox comedy, which bows Sept. 17 at 8:30/7:30c.

For the uninitiated, Brooklyn revolves around the detectives (fronted by SNL vet Andy Samberg) of the 99th precinct as they adjust to an ambitious new captain (Andre Braugher).

Richter will play a disinterested and dry-humored doorman at a building where an investigation is taking place.

In addition to his nightly Conan gig, Richter’s recent credits include Arrested Development, Happy Endings and Hot in Cleveland.

i see epic potential for this show. but this is in the cartoon world. i can accept a paper company and the parks department to act goofy and like idiots. but not the police. not the police. so pure fantasy on every level. humans who use guns in their job can not and will not act like this. it looks funny.

tv shows become very good in the second half of the first season when the writters know what works for the characters.sometimes even in the second season.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Makes Cops Comedic: "It's The Wire But With Jokes"
by Kate Stanhope

Fans may be surprised to see Andy Samberg back on the small screen so soon after ending his seven-year run on Saturday Night Live. However, his new gig as the star of the Fox comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine was, in fact, part of the grand plan all along.

"I had seen what they did with Amy [Poehler]," Samberg tells TVGuide.com of the series' creators, Parks and Recreation's Dan Goor and Mike Schur. "And I've generally made it a rule in my life to do everything she does because she's my hero."

In Brooklyn Nine-Nine, premiering Tuesday at 8:30/7:30c on Fox, Samberg stars as police officer Jake Peralta, a skilled detective who is good at enforcing the law, but bad at following the rules. That is, until he gets a new, much more strict captain (Andre Braugher).

Samberg admits he hesitated "slightly" about returning to TV so quickly. "But creatively, I knew immediately that I was interested," Samberg says.

The feeling was mutual for Goor and Schur, especially considering their past work with Poehler on Parks and Recreation, now going in its sixth season."To me, late-night is the best possible training group," Schur, a former SNL writer says. "They're really good at editing their material, they write, they direct, they produce. There's literally not a single thing in show business that Andy wasn't doing at a very high level when he left SNL, so if you're going to make a bet on someone to be the center of a network comedy show, I'll take an SNL performer."

Adds Goor: "We pitched the show before we got Andy so we had some idea of what we wanted the character to be. Once we got Andy, we felt like, 'Oh, we can make something great."

Although filming a single-camera comedy may be worlds away from performing sketches in front of a live studio audience, Samberg says it was his pre-taped segments, such as the digital shorts that made him a household name, that helped prepare him for his new job. "I have to memorize a hell of a lot more lines now because there are no cue cards, but other than that, I put it in the same basket," Samberg says. "It's making comedy. It's fun."

Luckily, Samberg has still been able to put his extensive skill set, particularly his improv talents, to good use. "Sometimes we'll just do the scene a bunch of times as scripted because we all agree that it's exactly how we like it," he says. "Other times we'll have ideas of how to tweak it, and the cast and the on-set writers or the on-set directors will pitch ideas. It's definitely open creatively to interject and add stuff, and a lot of stuff has made its way into episodes so far that is improv-ed."

It helps that Samberg is joined by several other comedic talents, including stand-up comedian and Parks and Recreation writer Chelsea Peritti and Joe Lo Truglio, known for big-screen comedies like Superbad and I Love You, Man. "It's like The Wire but with jokes," co-star Terry Crews says. "We deal with the same stuff. There's murder, there's drugs, there's all this stuff that would happen at a normal precinct, but the joke aspect of it is like a whole other element, and I think it will make people stay."

Although Samberg and Braugher are the stars of the show, like Parks and Recreation and The Office before it, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is at an ensemble show at its heart, filled with three-dimensional characters such as tough female detective, Amy (Melissa Fumero) who is secretly a big nerd, and the seemingly tough and intimating sergeant (Crews), who is not-so-secretly a big softie scared of getting hurt on the job. "We wanted to do a show about a really interesting, diverse group of fun characters who went out into the world and met interesting, funny people so that was a vote in favor of cop shows," Goor says. "But mostly, Mike and I have always been fans of cop shows with drama and comedy and so it was something that seemed like an exciting world to start writing about."

But how will the series stay light when the characters must investigate seemingly dark cases like murders and burglaries? Producers say the balancing act won't be as difficult as viewers might expect. "This show lives largely in the precinct house where they work," Schur says. "It's not like the world I think is clamoring for more shows that deal with grisly unpleasant crimes. They're real crimes, but we just avoid anything that seems squeamish or gross or horrifying and then it magically turns into a comedy from a drama."

Brooklyn Nine-Nine premieres on Tuesday at 8:30/7:30c on Fox.
