Montreal, PQ [July 7, 2014] – The 32nd edition of the Just For Laughs Festival, presented by Videotron in association with Loto-Québec, presents the cast, creators and producers of the award-winning comedy TV series, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, in an exclusive appearance moderated by The New York Times culture reporter, Dave Itzkoff.
Winner of a 2014 Golden Globe Award for ‘Best Television Series – Comedy or Musical’ and ‘Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Comedy or Musical’ (Andy Samberg), Brooklyn Nine-Nine returns for its sophomore season this fall on City (Canada) and Sundays on FOX (USA).
The single-camera ensemble series is set in the fictional 99th Precinct of the New York City Police Department in Brooklyn. It follows a team of detectives and their newly appointed captain.
Cast members participating in the Just For Laughs ComedyPRO panel include: Andy Samberg (Detective Jake Peralta), Andre Braugher (Captain Ray Holt), Chelsea Peretti (Gina Linetti), Stephanie Beatriz (Detective Rosa Diaz), Terry Crews (Sergeant Terry Jeffords), Melissa Fumero (Detective Amy Santiago) and Joe Lo Truglio (Detective Charles Boyle).
Also in attendance will be: Daniel J. Goor (Co-Creator, Writer, Executive Producer), Michael Schur (Co-Creator, Writer, Executive Producer) and David Miner (Executive Producer).
Season Two of Brooklyn Nine-Nine is currently in production. Season One ended with a surprising twist as Detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) was asked to go undercover for a major FBI investigation.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine is produced by Universal Television, 3 Arts Entertainment and Fremulon.
The series is created and written by Daniel J. Goor (Parks and Recreation, Late Night with Conan O’Brien) and Michael Schur (Parks and Recreation, The Office) and executive-produced by Goor, Schur and David Miner (30 Rock).
This is a unique opportunity for fans and industry insiders to hear first-hand about all the fun that happens behind-the-scenes of an instant comedy classic. Brooklyn Nine-Nine takes place Thursday, July 24, 2014 at 4 pm, Hyatt Regency Montreal, Grand Salon Opera.
