FOX’s longest running comedies “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “New Girl” are set to have a crossover event with the casts of the two shows coming together on Tuesday October 11th for a two-episode story that will run the 8pm-9pm hour.
‘Brooklyn’ co-creator Dan Goor says in a statement: “Brooklyn Nine-Nine crossing over with New Girl is very exciting, but (and this is supposed to be a secret) it’s just the first step. Stay tuned for our two casts to do a soulful R&B number on Empire, co-anchor the Fox 10 O’Clock News and connect for a touchdown on Fox NFL Sunday. But in all seriousness, we’re all huge fans of New Girl here at the Nine-Nine, and we’re excited to see our characters interact and to work with their incredible writers and producers. And also to see what their craft services are like, compared to ours.”
“New Girl” co-creator Elizabeth Meriwether adds: “The crossover episode has historically been the artistic high point of any show that has dared to attempt it. Maybe you remember ‘Blackout Thursday’ on NBC, or even further back the infamous Alf/Gilligan’s Island crossover of the late 1980s. New Girl and Brooklyn Nine-Nine will proudly and humbly go where few shows have gone since the 1990s. We know we have big shoes to fill, and we look forward to disappointing everyone. There’s a 50 percent chance Alf will also be in both episodes. But there’s also a 50 percent chance that is a lie.”
The fourth season of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and sixth season of “New Girl” kick off on September 20th.
