The single camera comedy follows a diverse group of New York City detectives and Braugher will play the precinct's Captain.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the pilot cast also includes Terry Crews ("Everybody Hates Chris"), Stephanie Beatriz ("Modern Family"), Melissa Fumero ("One Life to Live") and another "Parks and Rec" writer, Chelsea Peretti. "21 Jump Street" filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller are directing.
If the show is picked up, it would mark Braugher's first series regular gig on a half-hour comedy. He won two Emmys -- for NBC's "Homicide: Life on the Street" in 1998 and FX's miniseries "Thief" in 2006 -- and garnered additional nominations for HBO's movie "The Tuskegee Airmen," ABC's medical drama "Gideon's Crossing" and TNT's dramedy "Men of a Certain Age."

The same person, Russ Landau, composed the theme songs for "SeaQuest Dsv," "Survivor," and "Fear Factor."
Alan Thicke, known to some as Jason Seaver in "Growing Pains," and others as Robin Thicke's Dad, composed the theme songs for "The Facts of Life" and "Diff'rent Strokes." He also performed the theme song for "Diff'rent Strokes." Moreover, he also composed themes for the game shows "Celebrity Sweepstakes" and "Joker's Wild" in the 70s.
In addition to writing the theme for "The Simpsons" and "Tales from the Crypt," Danny Elfman also wrote the theme song for "Desperate Housewives."
Naturally, the show from the veteran stand-up and comedy Emmy winner is a drama. "Men of a Certain Age," which Romano co-created with "Raymond" writer and executive producer Mike Royce, premieres at 10 p.m. Et Monday on TNT.
"Drama" maybe isn't the exact right word for the show. "Men of a Certain Age" is an easygoing dramedy about three guys (Romano, Andre Braugher and Scott Bakula) on the far side of 40 who are still trying to figure out the direction of their lives. It's not a show that will reach out and grab you, but it does grow on you with its honest and funny portrayal of long-standing male friendship. Here are five things to watch for in the series.
- Ray Romano knows drama. Romano and Royce don't seem to
