Set to air on E4 and All 4 before the final episodes on 8th June, this 1x60’ special (produced by Wise Owl Films) will rejoice in the show’s very best moments and explore what turned it into a much-loved staple on our screens.
Across the hour, we’ll hear from the show’s key cast including, Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz and Joe Lo Truglio alongside with Dan Goor (co-creator/executive producer), Dan Marocco (composer of the show’s comedic-action score) and Craig Robinson, who plays recurring character Doug Judy.
But that’s not all - famous UK superfans, including Nish Kumar and Catherine Bohart, will be sharing their thoughts on their favourite moments from across the series.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a Golden Globe Award® winning series that follows the exploits of hilarious Detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) and his stoically ever-professional Captain Raymond Holt (Andre Braugher), along with their diverse lovable colleagues as they protect NYPD’s 99th precinct. The series also stars Joel McKinnon Miller and Dirk Blocker. Brooklyn Nine-Nine was produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, Fremulon, Dr. Goor Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment. The series was created and written by Dan Goor (Late Night with Conan O’ Brien, Parks and Recreation) and Michael Schur (The Office, Parks and Recreation) and was executive produced by Goor, Schur and David Miner (30 Rock).
Jonathan Rothery, Commissioning Editor, said: “Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a much-loved part of E4’s schedule and we’re delighted to have commissioned this special from Wise Owl Films to say a fitting goodbye, as we dissect why this show is so hugely (and rightly) celebrated. It’s one that all B99 fans won’t want to miss.”
Mark Robinson, executive producer on behalf of Wise Owl Films, said: “Brooklyn Nine-Nine isn’t just one of the funniest American comedies of recent years – in years to come we’ll look back on it as one of the most ground-breaking in terms of its storylines and characters. It’s been fascinating to hear from the stars and creator of the series just how they set about making comedy history”.
Goodbye Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a Wise Owl Films production for E4, produced and directed by Carla Wright and executive produced by Mark Robinson. It was commissioned for E4 by Commissioning Editor for Live Events and Comedy, Jonathan Rothery.
