Brooklyn Nine-Nine to switch to SBS 2
Exclusive: US cop sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine will premiere as an SBS 2 series this year.
SBS Programming Director Peter Andrews tells TV Tonight, “The plan is to play it on SBS 2 − give it first run for SBS 2 − and then there’s clearly an opportunity for us to play it on SBS ONE as well, but it will premiere on SBS2.
The Golden Globe winning comedy is very funny, laugh out loud, well scripted, critically acclaimed. It is right on brand for SBS 2 but it also ticks the box a little bit for the main channel.
“We do have an ambition, in certain areas, to be very audience-focussed and, where we can, to really target that 25-54 core audience.”
