If the pilot of cop show "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is any indication, police captain Ray Holt is well on his way to joining the pantheon of well-realized LGBT characters on network TV. It's not that Holt ( portrayed by "Homicide" alum Andre Braugher ) is particularly central to the new Fox sitcom. That honor rests with Andy Samberg, who plays immature-but-brilliant Brooklyn detective Jake Peralta. "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is built around the actor's well-proven hyperactive humor, albeit a little more restrained.

As the new network season arrives this week, a couple of old familiar Baltimore faces have caught my eye: Andre Braugher and Wendell Pierce. Happily, they are in two of the more promising series in an otherwise mostly lackluster field: “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (Fox) and “The Michael J. Fox Show” (NBC). Neither is the headliner. “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” a sitcom set in a police precinct, stars Andy Samberg as Jake Peralta, a brilliant but impulsive young detective. “The Michael J. Fox Show” is a family comedy starring Fox as a New York anchorman who returns to the airwaves five years after retiring in the wake of being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.

As a Baltimore police officer, Dennis P. Mello never paid much attention to rank or color. Being a black police captain meant nothing if the city was unsafe and its residents unhappy.That philosophy led other officers to refer to Mr. Mello, 84, who died Tuesday of cancer at his West Baltimore home, as a "policeman's policeman.""He was a good policeman who enjoyed doing good, effective police work," said Maj. Alvin Winkler, a longtime member of the city Police Department. "He cared a lot about others."

Producer 3: And werewolves. We already have a show about a teenage werewolf, but why not another? Producer 4: Oh my God, you guys. Why not put them all in the same show! Producers 1, 2 and 3 : Genius! MTV's latest attempt at scripted fare is the horror-comedy "Death Valley," premiering at 10:30 p.m. Aug. 29. It's set in California's San Fernando Valley, not in the desert.

You hope to find clues about what they will do next, and suss out what they did in their past. This hushed, quietly charismatic movie centers on a cultured, educated ex-con. After 15 years in prison, Juliette Fontaine (Kristin Scott Thomas) comes to stay with her literary-professor sister Lea (Elsa Zylberstein)
