Jake Peralta, an immature, but talented N.Y.P.D. detective in Brooklyn's 99th Precinct, comes into immediate conflict with his new commanding officer, the serious and stern Captain Ray Holt.
Andy Samberg wanted to take a break from television after seven years on Saturday Night Live (1975). However, when he saw the script, he thought it was too funny to pass up.
Captain Ray Holt:
CORRECT-GOOF: Holt carries a revolver rather than a semiautomatic like Jake, Rosa, Amy, Charles and Terry do because the NYPD allowed any officer who purchased a revolver prior to the department's switchover to semiautomatics in 1994--such as Holt, who had been with the department since the 1970s--to keep them.
