Fox offered a look at next week’s crossover episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine and New Girl, giving viewers of tonight’s promo a chance to decide for themselves about the wacky chemistry between Andy Samberg and Zooey Deschanel. The special episodes air Tuesday, Oct. 11 (8:00-8:31/8:31-9:01 PM ET/PT).
In the Brooklyn Nine-Nine episode titled “Night Shift”, (8 PM ET/PT), Samberg’s Jake encounters Deschanel’s Jess, who is visiting New York, and enlists her to help him find his suspect in a new case. Meanwhile, Holt (Andre Braugher) researches ways to increase office morale, which has been at a record low since the squad was transferred to the night shift.
Then, in the “Homecoming” episode of New Girl (8:31 PM ET/PT), the mystery of how Jess arrived in New York is explained. When Schmidt (Max Greenfield) believes he is being honored at his high school, the gang travels east. Once there, Jess meets Jake, which leads her to Brooklyn’s 99th Precinct and a fateful encounter with Gina Linetti (guest star Chelsea Peretti) and Capt. Holt. Meanwhile, Nick (Jake Johnson) and Winston (Lamorne Morris) scramble to make subway fare, while trying to impress Det. Charles Boyle (guest star Joe Lo Truglio). And Cece (Hannah Simone) faces off with her new mother-in-law (guest star Nora Dunn).
