Andy Samberg is coming home.
The single-camera comedy revolves around an eclectic group of detectives in a precinct on the fringes of New York City. Samberg will play the station’s top cop in the project, which landed at Fox with a put-pilot commitment after a multiple-network bidding war in August. Samberg also will serve as an executive producer.
For Samberg, the Fox comedy marks his second small-screen gig after he departed NBC’s Saturday Night Live in June. He joined the sketch comedy series in 2005 and, like other SNL players, has segued into a feature film career including That’s My Boy, opposite Adam Sandler. The actor-comedian joined SNL the season after Schur departed the Lorne Michaels series as a writer-producer.
Samberg, who stars on BBC Three sitcom Cuckoo, is repped by UTA, Mosaic and Ziffren Brittenham.
