Arguably the biggest shock of all the cancelled shows is that of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, considering the popularity the show continues to have after five seasons.
NBC is turbo-charging the trend of reviving canceled comedies with its pickup of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine". "I speak for everyone at NBC, here's to the Nine-Nine!" he added. The network had been among the broadcast networks that bid for the Brooklyn Nine-Nine pitch from creators Mike Schur and Dan Goor when it hit the marketplace in 2012 before the project landed at Fox in a very competitive situation. With this in mind it has always been downright odd that Brooklyn Nine-Nine - a broadly optimistic sitcom starring a Saturday Night Live alum from the Parks and Rec people - was never on NBC to begin with.
"It was based on a variety of factors".
"Usually January and February are periods for us where we do some treading water while "The Voice" is off between fall and spring and this year I am really thrilled about what we put together driven by unscripted shows", Greenblatt said. It's a phenomenal cast. Ultimately we felt like we didn't have the exact right place to schedule it this year. He is also behind the fantasy comedy series "The Good Place" starring Kristen Bell and Ted Danson, as well as the brand-new comedy called "Abby's" starring Natalie Morales, Neil Flynn, and Jessica Chaffin.
One midseason alternative-reality series is "The Titan Games", pitting six contenders in battles of "mind, body and heart" - beyond sheer brute strength.
In other words, the Fox execs are moving the blame from themselves and saying that if we want to blame anyone for the initial cancellation of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, blame Roseanne, Bob's Burgers and the NFL.
He noted that as far as Timeless and Mindy Kaling's bubble comedy Champions, "we tried to give the producers the courtesy of letting this shows run" before making a decision about their futures. But Fox was aware others were interested in the show and is "happy" it found a home, she said. "We kind of assumed it would".
Tim Allen will be back on TV as his sitcom Last Man Standing, which was canceled by ABC a year ago, moves to Fox's fall schedule. "And we're excited about this fantastic new chapter for 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine'".
Fox also explained why it saved "Last Man Standing."
"We certainly didn't go into the season thinking that we needed to make a tonal shift", said Newman.
