Comedy series following the exploits of Det. Jake Peralta and his diverse, lovable colleagues as they police the NYPD’s 99th Precinct.



The endearing characters and their funny adventures charm us from the beginning. It has already become a classic in many countries. There are several queer characters experiencing their own challenges which are well developed. Even with the characters’ and their adventures’ general extravagance, the subjects, like sexual orientation, coming out and other difficulties, are represented realistically. The show seems to have found a balance between uncovering the difficult realities of LGBTQ+ characters and normalizing those realities. It brings awareness despite the comedy genre of the show.
