‘Brooklyn Nine Nine’ scrapped 4 new-season scripts after George Floyd’s murder
Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Terry Crews says the comedic police cop series has tossed out four "ready to go" scripts for its upcoming season after the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. In an interview with Deadline, Crews said showrunner Dan Goor, “had four [new] episodes all ready to go and they just threw them in the trash. We have to start over. Right now we don’t know which direction it’s going to go in.”
Crews added the cast and crew have had “a lot of somber talks about it and deep conversations and we hope through this we’re going to make something that will be truly groundbreaking this year. We have an opportunity here, and we plan to use it in the best way possible.”
Brooklyn Nine-Nine donated $100,000 to the National Bail Fund Network after Floyd's death.
