And just when you thought you’ve seen it all. Peacock TV is the latest streamer to hit the market, so soon after HBO Max and Quibi. The NBCUniversal product (Peacock is named after the network’s bird mascot) features NBC classics such as 30 Rock, The Office, and Parks and Recreation. However, like Max, the streamer has a slate of original programming to entice viewers beyond a nostalgic TV night in.
First up is Hitmen, an office (sort of) comedy about two friends Jamie and Fran (Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins, respectively), who are your average Janes looking for their place in the world. They also kill people. Their petty bickering can get in the way of getting the job done, so expect some classic shenanigans to ensue. Next is Five Bedrooms. Five singles meet at the singles’ table at a wedding. They get along so well they decide to pitch in on a house. What could go wrong? Realizing rather late they must cohabit with each other, they embark on a journey filled with love, heartbreak, but most importably friendship.
Lastly, A.P. Bio has been switched over to Peacock, having originally premiered on NBC for two seasons. It follows a disgraced Harvard professor (Glenn Howerton) who loses his dream job and must now teach AP Biology at his former high school.
