BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Andre Braugher has had two decades of acclaim for his serious TV roles, ranging from "Homicide" to "Last Resort."

Now he's playing it for laughs on the new Fox cop comedy "Brooklyn Nine-Nine."

Braugher said Thursday at a Television Critics Association session that there's a little bit of a learning curve. He praised his fellow cast members as a funny group that he is watching like a hawk and learning from.

The ensemble includes co-star Andy Samberg as an NYPD detective who, off-duty, is a goof-off. Braugher plays his up-tight, no-nonsense sergeant.

Braugher said being part of a comedy is much more uplifting than the dramas he has done – and he's loving it.

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" premieres this fall.
