Fox and FX Celebrate TCA With ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine,’ ‘Gotham,’ ‘Sleepy Hollow’ Stars

Fox and FX’s stars were out in full force on Sunday night, taking over the penthouse of swanky West Hollywood private members’ club Soho House for their annual Television Critics Assn. summer soiree. Guests dined on fried chicken, tender brisket and corn on the cob in the terrace garden, while the young stars of “Red Band Society” played darts and table hockey in the main club. Servers kept attendees snacking with woodfired pizza and mini grilled cheese sandwiches accompanied by shots of tomato soup, and dessert included bitesize butterscotch puddings and freshly fried donuts.

“Red Band” and “So You Think You Can Dance” stars crammed the corridor outside the venue’s popular Polaroid photo booth, while “Gotham” scene-stealers Robin Lord Taylor and Cory Michael Smith spent much of the night beset by press trying to glean intel on the highly anticipated Batman prequel series. Likewise, “The Strain’s” Corey Stoll had a steady stream of critics eager to dissect the genre thriller, which premiered as the summer’s biggest new cable drama among young adults last week.

Fox Networks Group chairman Peter Rice held court by the bar for most of the evening, while the cast of Golden Globe winner “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” took over the terrace couches to hobnob with eager journos. “Bones” headliner David Boreanaz — who brought son Jaden to the shindig — was spotted exchanging hugs with “So You Think You Can Dance” host Cat Deeley, while “Sleepy Hollow” star Tom Mison couldn’t help but marvel at the sprawling view of the city afforded by the club’s secluded balcony.
