After appearing on “Saturday Night Live” for seven years and producing phenomenally popular “Digital Shorts,” how will Andy Samberg transition to a traditional sitcom?

Samberg is starring in the Fox comedy “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” a new comedy premiering Sept. 17, which follows Samberg’s character Jake Peralta, a police detective whose immature ways are challenged by his precinct’s strict captain (Andre Braugher). “Gossip Girl” actress Melissa Fumero is playing Jake’s partner Amy.

The show was created by Michael Schur, who is the executive producer and co-creator of the NBC comedy “Parks and Recreation,” and Dan Goor, also an executive producer for “Parks.”
