When you mesh Max Greenfield with Andy Samberg, it’s bound to be a hit right? That’s what Fox thinks! ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ and ‘New Girl’ are set to air two back-to-back crossover episodes this fall!
Move over NBC Chicago shows! Fox is jumping on the crossover train with two of its biggest comedies ever heading to New York for a full hour of comedy. Who wouldn’t want to see Brooklyn Nine-Nine with New Girl?
“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,” said Dan Goor, co-creator and executive producer of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. “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.”
“The crossover episode has historically been the artistic high point of any show that has dared to attempt it,” said Elizabeth Meriwether, creator and executive producer of New Girl. “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.”
Season four of Brooklyn Nine-Nine premieres at 8PM, with season six of New Girl premiering at 8:30 on Tuesday, Sept. 20 on Fox. The crossover episode will take place on Oct. 11!
