Brooklyn Nine-Nine makers Phil Augusta Jackson and Dan Goor are collaborating on a brand new NBC comedy series.
Titled Grand Crew, The Wrap reports that this one follows a bunch of Black friends "unpacking the ups and downs of life and love at a wine bar".
Arrowverse actor Echo Kellum, Blue Bloods' Justin Cunningham, Carl Tart, Aaron Jennings and Nicole Byer have already been cast, while Mo Marable directs the pilot.
Discussing the network's stable of upcoming pilots (including American Auto and La Brea), president of scripted content Lisa Katz commented: "Our driving force has always been to seek out talented storytellers who have a strong point of view.
"While these shows are very different thematically, what they have in common is a unique voice, excellent world building, and compelling storytelling. We can't wait to share them with TV fans everywhere."
Elsewhere, Brooklyn Nine-Nine's forthcoming eighth season could be "really groundbreaking" according to Captain Holt's Andre Braugher.

"Can a comedy sustain the things that we're trying to talk about? I don't know," the star mused, in reference to real-life police brutality.
"It could be a really groundbreaking season that we're all going to be very, very proud of, or we're going to fall flat on our face.
"But I think this is a staff, a cast and a crew that's willing to take it on and give it our best. I think we have a damn good chance to tell the kinds of stories that heretofore have only been seen on grittier shows."
Brooklyn Nine-Nine is available to stream on Netflix and All4. It can be seen on E4 in the UK or NBC in the US.
