‘New Girl’ and ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ will cross over in the fall
FOX’s veteran Tuesday comedies will join forces for a crossover in the fall when the crew of “New Girl” heads to New York and meets the cops of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”
Just what brings Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Co. to New York isn’t part of FOX’s announcement, but an airdate is: The crossover is scheduled for Oct. 11.
The two shows’ creators seem to know what’s in store.
“The crossover episode has historically been the artistic high point of any show that has dared to attempt it,” “New Girl” creator Elizabeth Meriwether says in a statement. “Maybe you remember ‘Blackout Thursday’ on NBC, or even further back the infamous ‘Alf’/’Gilligan’s Island’ crossover of the late 1980s. … We know we have big shoes to fill, and we look forward to disappointing everyone.”
“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” co-creator Dan Goor is thinking even bigger: “‘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.'”
