The much-anticipated Quebecois adaption of NBC’s popular sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine is set to premiere tonight.
Escouade 99, starring Mickaël Gouin as Andy Samberg’s equivalent of Detective Jake Peralta, is debuting exclusively on Vidéotron’s Club Illico.
After purchasing the rights to the hit comedy series starring Samberg, Quebec broadcast company Quebecor Content has remade the series for the French-Canadian market.

The adaptation is produced by the ComediHa! production team in Quebec City and the series is directed by Montreal-native Patrick Huard of Bon Cop Bad Cop fame and stars Gouin, Mylène MacKay, and Guy Jodoin.
According to Vidéotron, the Quebec remake centres around a “group of endearing and out of the ordinary detectives who fight crime at Escouade 99 in Quebec City.”
Judging by this summer’s teaser trailer, series creators have done a good job at mimicking Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s antics, style, set, and wardrobes.
