Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Peacock)
Synopsis: From Dan Goor and Mike Schur, producers of The Office and Parks and Recreation, comes the hilarious Golden Globe® Award-winning comedy, Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg, Saturday Night Live) is a Brooklyn detective with a gift for closing cases and little respect for authority. When no-nonsense commanding officer Raymond Holt (Andre Braugher, Homicide: Life on the Street) joins the 99th precinct with something to prove, the two go head to head.
Tacoma FD (HBO Max & Prime Video Premium Subscription)
Synopsis: There are not a lot of fires to fight in one of the rainiest cities in America, leaving the crew at the Tacoma Fire Department to tackle the less glamorous elements of the job. Light on blazes that need extinguishing, this squad keeps itself entertained with creative competitions, friendly first-responder rivalries, and bizarre emergency calls.
Synopsis: From the distinct comedic point of view of Denis Leary and Bob Fisher, SIRENS follows three of Chicago’s best EMTs whose sometimes silly, self-righteous, and even self-destructive personalities make them unqualified for sustaining relationships, friendships, and most occupations.
Community (Netflix & Hulu)
Synopsis: From Dan Harmon (The Sarah Silverman Program) and Emmy Award-winning directors Joe and Anthony Russo (Arrested Development) comes Community, a smart comedy series about a band of misfits who attend Greendale Community College. At the center of the group is Jeff Winger (Joel McHale, The Soup), a fast-talkin’ lawyer whose degree has been revoked. With some help from his fellow classmates, Winger forms a study group who eventually learn more about themselves than their course work.
Synopsis: A single-camera comedy about three brothers in the military, assigned to a small Florida Army base, and the group of misfits who surround them.
Superstore (Hulu & Peacock)
Synopsis: “Superstore” is a hilarious workplace comedy about a unique family of employees at big box megastore Cloud 9. At the center is Jonah (Ben Feldman), a passionate optimist always looking out for his co-workers, including the sardonic Garrett (Colton Dunn), the sweet and fun-loving Cheyenne (Nichole Sakura) and the perpetually dismissed Sandra (Kaliko Kauahi). Back in the manager job is Glenn (Mark McKinney), who once again finds himself butting heads with aggressive assistant manager Dina (Lauren Ash), but is now assisted by Mateo (Nico Santos), who’s pretty sure he would be running things by now if it weren’t for his undocumented status.
Reno 911 (Paramount+)
Synopsis: Led by short-shorts-wearing Lieutenant Dangle, the Reno cops attack a belligerent mime, roll into the Burning Man scene, have their first run-in with an infamous milkshake, and make more than one visit to a strip club — all in just the first season.
Party Down (Hulu, Starz & The Roku Channel)
Synopsis: While chasing dreams of stardom, six Hollywood wannabe actors and writers make ends meet by working for a posh Los Angeles catering company, which tackles a different event — senior singles mixer, porn awards after party, a Super Sweet 16 bash — in each episode.
