'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' books Jenny Slate for season premiere
The season premiere of Brooklyn Nine-Nine is slated to air Sept. 28, and now it is Slated as well: Jenny Slate will guest-star in that episode of the Fox comedy, EW has learned.
Slate—who currently stars on new FX comedy Married and in the big-screen romantic comedy Obvious Child—will play a tough, street-smart mob mistress named Bianca who Jake (Andy Samberg) encounters while working undercover for the FBI. Bianca could turn out to be the one who helps Jake bring the last mobster to justice and close out his undercover case.
Slate previously cracked wise alongside Samberg as Saturday Night Live cast member during the 2009-10 season. She also occasionally plays Mona Lisa on Parks and Recreation, which is overlorded by Brooklyn Nine-Nine co-creator Michael Schur.
The show’s second episode of the season will feature another well-known guest: Kyra Sedgwick will play the nemesis of Captain Holt (Andre Braugher). Sedgwick is scheduled to appear in two episodes.
A group of ragtag cops — led by Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) — run the 99th precinct of the NYPD.
