Andre Braugher has been set to co-star opposite Andy Samberg in Fox’s Schur/Goor comedy pilot, from Universal TV and 3 Arts. Phil Lord and Chris Miller are directing the single-camera ensemble project, which revolves around a diverse group of detectives in a precinct at the very edge of New York City. Braugher will play Capt. Holt, who after 30 years of the force has finally gotten his own command, and he’s not going to let anyone, least of all Jake (Samberg), screw it up. This would mark the first half-hour comedy series for Homicide alum Braugher, who most recently starred in ABC’s short-lived Last Resort. Before that, he played a lead on the TNT dramedy Men Of A Certain Age.
