Fox is adding to its questionable crossover choices by announcing that New Girl and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
The announcement was made during the Fox TCA Press Tour though it didn’t come with any plot details or a timescale. Dan Goor, co-creator and executive producer of Brooklyn Nine-Nine had this to say:
“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. But in all seriousness, we’re all huge fans of ‘New Girl’ here at the ‘Nine-Nine,’ and we’re excited to see our characters interact and to work with their incredible writers and producers. And also to see what their craft services are like, compared to ours.”
Elizabeth Meriwether, creator and executive producer of New Girl said:
“The crossover episode has historically been the artistic high point of any show that has dared to attempt it. Maybe you remember ‘Blackout Thursday’ on NBC, or even further back the infamous ‘Alf’/‘Gilligan’s Island’ crossover of the late 1980s. ‘New Girl’ and ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ will proudly and humbly go where few shows have gone since the 1990s. We know we have big shoes to fill, and we look forward to disappointing everyone. There’s a 50% chance Alf will also be in both episodes. But there’s also a 50% chance that is a lie,”
