Fox may be wondering whether it did the right thing the morning after news broke that the network had canceled “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” Fox announced the sitcom’s cancellation along with issuing pink slips for “The Mick” and “Last Man on Earth.”
But today it’s looking as though “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” has plenty of potential distributors waiting to snap up the show. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that Hulu, TBS, NBC and Netflix all appear to be interested.
“Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ producers Universal Television have fielded a number of incoming calls from other outlets including Hulu (where the Andy Samberg comedy has an SVOD deal), Netflix (which has business with the studio, including ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’), TBS (whose president, Kevin Reilly, developed the series and whose network airs off-network repeats of the comedy) and network sibling NBC,” THR reports.
The studio “has plans to fight to revive the series at another outlet,” THR adds, citing unnamed sources.
