The Golden Globe-winning Brooklyn Nine-Nine returns to active duty on NBC In February with its Season 7 premiere. VIFF is thrilled to host Co-Creator and Executive Producer Dan Goor as he talks about subversive humor, challenging stereotypes and the art of delivering well-crafted jokes. NBC’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine follows a diverse ensemble cast of cheeky New York detectives who absolutely nail it when it comes to solving absurd cases, having each other’s backs, and smashing stereotypes. A fast-paced police-procedural comedy, Brooklyn Nine-Nine strikes a delightful balance between playful humour and heartfelt, down-to-earth drama— lending sincere and thoughtful commentary to social issues such as gun control, sexism, and racial profiling. Beloved for its depictions of nuanced relationships, and its unique, well-rounded characters— such as the hilariously stoic, precise, and mannered Captain Holt (Andre Braugher), and badass bi Latina detective Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz) — Brooklyn Nine-Nine is not only one of the funniest and most progressive shows on prime-time television; it’s the ultimate noice, toit, feel-good sitcom. Nine-Nine!
Brooklyn Nine-Nine airs Thursdays, beginning February 6th at 8:30pm on CityTV.
Presented in partnership with Pacific Screenwriting Program.
