Brooklyn Nine-Nine adapted in Canada

The original Brooklyn Nine-Nine first aired on Fox in the US

French-Canadian producer and channels operator Quebecor Content is to adapt NBCUniversal’s police comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine for a local audience.

The agreement marks the first international version of the series, which was originally produced by Universal Television in association with Fremulon, Dr Goor Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment.

Distributor NBCUniversal International Formats agreed the deal with Quebecor Content.

In Quebec, the locally adapted version will be produced by ComediHa! and directed by Patrick Huard (Taxi 0-22, Filière 13), with production set to start this summer in Quebec City.

“This first international adaptation of the series Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a perfect fit with our mandate of producing and broadcasting distinctive content,” said Yann Paquet, VP of Quebecor Content.

Ana Langenberg, senior VP of formats and production at NBCUniversal International Formats, added: “The premise of the show is so universal. It’s a workplace comedy, centred on a group of dynamic and formidable characters, which easily lends itself to be adapted for international audiences.”

Brooklyn Nine-Nine was recently renewed for a second season on NBC, which picked up the show following its cancellation after five seasons on Fox.
