Patrick Fabian in Official Trailer for Amusing Rideshare Film 'DriverX'

"How'd it go? Any weirdos?" Sundance Selects/IFC have debuted the first trailer for an indie drama titled DriverX, which premiered at a few small film festivals last year. The film is about a stay-at-home dad who decides to take a job driving for a hip rideshare company called DriverX, an obvious reference to Uber/Lyft. At first it seems like a fresh new start, but low pay and wild La nights put an even greater strain on his marriage. Patrick Fabian (from "Better Call Saul") stars as Leonard, and the cast includes Tanya Clarke, Desmin Borges, Oscar Nunez, Travis Schuldt, and Melissa Fumero. This trailer makes it seem like this film will end with them saying hey, these apps are good, look what kind of new life it can give you! But I'm not sure. This is also lightly humorous, riding down the middle of the genre road without picking a lane.

‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Season 6′ Teaser: NBC Welcomes Canceled-And-Revived Cop Comedy

  • Deadline
It’s been nearly six months since Fox canceled its cop comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine after five seasons and NBC re-cuffed just a day later. Now we have our first brief look at Season 6 of the series starring Andy Samberg as an NYPD detective and his wacky colleagues in the 99th Precinct. Take a look above.

The 15-second clip doesn’t offer much in the way of plot reveals, but it appears to show the characters celebrating at the local watering hole. You might recall that, in what could have been the series finale, Season 5’s cliffhanger saw Captain Ray Holt open an email that tells whether he got the Police Commissioner job. He didn’t share the news with his colleagues, though.

Last season’s final episode also featured the Murphy’s Law-stricken wedding of Jake Peralta (Samberg) and fellow detective

32 Times Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Jake and Amy Proved That True Love Really Does Exist

  • BuzzSugar
There are so many things that Brooklyn Nine-Nine gets right, it's impossible to name every reason we love it. Is it the amazingly talented cast, which also happens to be incredibly diverse? Is it the perfect blend of humor, action, and feel-good sap that it manages to infuse into each episode? It's probably all those things and more - including the creation of TV's most precious couple: Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) and Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero).

If there's one thing B99's cocreator Michael Schur knows how to do, it's create an iconic couple. Much like The Office's Jim and Pam and Parks and Recreation's Ben and Leslie, Jake and Amy are the kind of couple who make you believe in love. When they first interact in season one, their relationship mostly consists of Jake pulling Amy's proverbial pigtails, which is annoying but also amusing because Amy always gives as good as she gets.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 6: Chelsea Peretti to Exit the Series

Joseph Baxter Oct 3, 2018

While Brooklyn Nine-Nine was saved by NBC, the return will serve as the send-off for Chelsea Peretti’s Gina Linetti.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans have been – in numerically-appropriate fashion – on cloud nine ever since NBC stepped up to rescue the popular sitcom in the aftermath of cancellation from Fox. However, when the sidesplitting bullpen ultimately return to the titular police precinct in 2019, it will be under bittersweet circumstances, since it will mark the show’s very first cast member departure with the impending exit of Chelsea Peretti.

That’s right, Peretti, who has played Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s sarcastic civilian administrator, Gina Linetti, since the show’s 2013 inception, will leave the series during the NBC-charted Season 6. Peretti confirms her departure in a series of tweets, explaining:

"I won't be doing a full season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine in season six. But that doesn’t mean I won’t ever be back,

Sundance Selects Acquires U.S. Rights to Uber-Inspired ‘DriverX’ (Exclusive)

  • Variety
Sundance Selects has acquired U .S. rights to Henry Barrial’s Uber-inspired “DriverX” starring Patrick Fabian (“Better Call Saul”) and Tanya Clarke (“Banshee”).

The movie stars Fabian as Leonard Moore, a 50-something stay-at-home dad in Los Angeles who is desperate to find a job and signs up to drive for the popular ride-share company DriverX, leading his marriage to fray at home. The film follows Leonard as he navigates L.A.’s late-night, Tinder-fueled party scene while adjusting to the new technology and the young millennials he drives around.

“The film was inspired by my own experiences as an Uber driver while waiting in vain for another movie to get green-lit,” said Barriel, who also wrote the script. “From the first moment where I was hired via text, without ever meeting or speaking to another human being, I felt something different was happening here that might be worth investigating in a film.

‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Gets Expanded 18-Episode Order On NBC

  • Deadline
NBC is adding five episodes to its original 13-episode order for praised cop comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine, bringing the total to 18 episodes for the 2018-19 season.

Season 6 of Brooklyn Nine-Nine will premiere midseason on NBC.

NBC picked up the Andy Samberg-starring comedy following its cancellation by Fox last spring. The network, whose sister studio Universal TV produces the series, was one of the potential suitors for the comedy after its cancellation. NBC also was 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.

Created by the Parks and Recreation duo of Dan Goor and Michael Schur, who are former college roommates, Brooklyn Nine-Nine centers on Peralta, played by Saturday Night Live alum Samberg, a screwball who happens to be a real good cop.
