Veteran Actor Andre Braugher Joins Brand New Comedy Series!

Posted Feb 12, 2013

AndreA couple of days ago we mentioned the news that Terry Crews was about to join a new comedy series for FOX in a yet to be titled series. Well, yesterday we discovered some news that veteran actor Andre Braugher (of House, NBC’s Law & Order: SVU, and Homicide: Life On The Streets) also signed up, as he intends to play the police captain in the series.

Braugher will join Andy Samberg (of Saturday Night Live fame) along with Crews in the new series from Mike Schur and Dan Goor, as Phil Lord and Chris Miller (directors of 21 Jump Street), are set to direct.

We hear that the series will be about a group of detectives in a New York City precinct as Samberg will play the lead detective. Crews will play a character named Terry Jeffords, described as “the no-nonsense but father-like sergeant who runs the detective squad.”

Melissa Fumero is also along for the ride as Amy, a smart cop and former middle school teacher joining  Stephanie Beatriz, who also will play a cop in the comedy from Universal Television.

Braugher will play Captain Holt, described as a 30-year veteran of the New York City police force. Holt has finally gotten his own command and he’s not going to let anyone, especially Samberg’s character, mess it up.
