Andy Samberg stars as Detective Jake Peralta, a good enough cop that he's never had to work that hard or follow the rules too closely. Perhaps because he has the best arrest record among his colleagues, he's been enabled — if not indulged — throughout his entire career. That is, until the precinct gets a new commanding officer, Captain Ray Holt (Andre Braugher), who reminds this hotshot cop to respect the badge.
Jake may have collared more criminals, but Detective Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero) is close behind, and she's keenly aware of how many arrests she needs to close the gap. Amy grew up with seven brothers. She's the first girl in the family to put on a police uniform, and suffice it to say: she's extremely competitive … about everything.
Together, these tightly knit — or is it tightly wound? — cops interrogate suspects, arrest perps and solve murders in this workplace comedy that's not really about the job. It's about the men and women behind the badge — singing karaoke, grabbing a beer and hitting on each other — all while protecting the fine people of Brooklyn.
