Terry Crews has been tapped to co-star opposite Andy Samberg in an untitled Fox comedy pilot from Mike Schur/Dan Goor, to be directed by the co-directors of 21 Jump Street (the movie) – Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
The project will center on a diverse group of detectives in a New York City precinct.
Samberg will play the lead detective, while Terry Crews will play a character named Terry Jeffords, described as “the no-nonsense but father-like sergeant who runs the detective squad.“
Crews is certainly busy, with a recurring role on Aaron Sorkin’s HBO drama The Newsroom and will appear in the upcoming Netflix reboot of Arrested Development. On the big screen, he’ll appear in Tyler Perry’s Single Mom’s Club.
