What is it? After leaving SNL (and popping over here to star in Cuckoo), Andy Samberg is set for his first leading US TV role. The series is a single-camera cop comedy featuring the Lonely Island veteran as Detective Jake Peralta, a childish but highly skilled officer who solves plenty of crime when he’s not horsing around – and sometimes while he is. Then he gets a new captain in the no-nonsense Ray Holt (Andre Braugher, showing some comedy chops), who decides that Jake needs to shape up. With Terry Crews and Joe Lo Truglio also in the cast, this one is from Dan Goor and Mike Shur, who co-created Parks & Recreation, so we’ll definitely be giving this a look.
