Continuing a proud television tradition that dates back decades, tonight’s episodes of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “New Girl” will feature one another’s characters in a crossover event. The two comedies, which air back-to-back on Fox, have just released a behind-the-scenes preview. Watch it below.
Zooey Deschanel will first appear on “Jake Meets Jess,” tonight’s episode of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”; immediately after, on “New Girl’s” “Jess Takes Manhattan,” Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Joe LoTruglio and Chelsea Peretti will make guest appearances. Deschanel’s character finds herself at the precinct while visiting New York, and is enlisted by Samberg to find a suspect after having a “fateful encounter” with Gina (Peretti) and Captain Holt (Braugher).
In the video, Joe Lo Truglio discusses the crossover with Jake Johnson and Lamorne Morris, sarcastically assuring us that Samberg is among the meanest people in show business. “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” airs at 8 PM EST tonight, “New Girl” at 8:30.
