Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Terry Crews reveals “jarring” change after swapping channels –


Andy Samberg thinks there’s one big benefit of Brooklyn Nine-Nine moving from Fox to NBC for season six… aside from it not being cancelled.

“We’ve got a couple of bleeps already going, and I gotta tell you… it feels real good,” Samberg joked to E! News.



His co-star Terry Crews admitted: “I had one where I’m ashamed. I’m actually very ashamed… God, it was so jarring. Everyone from behind, they were like, we actually… everybody had to regroup… for five minutes.

“I was like, ‘Oh my god!’ I was like, ‘Yo yo yo, everybody okay? Everybody all right?’ We had to check with everybody to make sure, but it was hilarious.”

“We couldn’t believe it, because Terry Crews does not talk like that,” castmate Joe Lo Truglio chimed in.

Earlier this week, series creator Dan Goor admitted to Variety that the cast and writers have felt pressure to live up to fans’ intense expectations in moving to NBC.

“We are committed to making the same kind of show for the same kind of audience. I always feel a tremendous amount of pressure to make the fans happy and make sure they enjoy the show,” he said.

“But it’s more of the same, I hope, in a good way. I think you have a shorthand with your audience. They understand who the characters are and why they would act the way they do in certain situations.”
