Kyra Sedgwick Books Role on Fox's BROOKLYN NINE-NINE

According to EW, Kyra Sedgwick has just booked a two-episode guest starring role on Fox's Golden Globe-winning comedy BROOKLYN NINE-NINE.

Per the report, Sedgwick will "play a different kind of deputy chief-Madeline Wuntch, the steely longtime rival of Captain Holt (Andre Braugher...). Now in a higher-ranking position than Holt, Deputy Chief Wuntch is evaluating all of the precincts, and she's aiming to take him down-along with the rest of the Nine-Nine."

From Emmy Award-winning writer/producers Dan Goor and Michael Schur ("Parks and Recreation"), and starring Emmy Award winners Andy Samberg ("Saturday Night Live") and Andre Braugher ("Men of a Certain Age," "Homicide: Life on the Street"), BROOKLYN NINE-NINE is a single-camera ensemble comedy about what happens when a talented-but-carefree detective and his diverse group of colleagues get a new captain with a lot to prove.

BROOKLYN NINE-NINE won this year's Golden Globe Awards for Best Television Series - Comedy or Musical, and Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series - Comedy or Musical(Samberg).

Sedgwick has been seen on Broadway in: Twelfth Night at Lincoln Theatre directed by Nicholas Hytner; Ah, Wilderness! directed by Jose Quintero. Off-Broadway: Craig Lucas' Stranger, David Mamet's Oleanna. Film: Born on the Fourth of July, Singles, Something to Talk About, Phenomenon, Personal Velocity, Second Hand Lions, The Woodsman, The Possession. She will next be seen in Oren Moverman's Time Out of Mind opposite Richard Gere. TV: "Miss Rose White," "Door to Door," and most notably "The Closer," for which she won a Golden Globe and Emmy. Executive Producer: "The Closer" and the upcoming "Proof" on TNT.
