After last week's "Field of Dreams" game between the White Sox and Yankees sparked renewed interest in the 1989 film, Peacock is hoping to hit a home run with a new series based on the movie.
The series version is being developed by Michael Schur, who will write and executive produce the show, says Lisa Katz, president of NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. Schur, a former writer for "The Office," is responsible for such shows as "The Good Place" and "Parks and Recreation."
"Through the years, ‘Field of Dreams’ has remained a fan favorite, maintaining its rightful position in the zeitgeist,” Katz says. "It’s whimsical and grounded, a space where Mike Schur excels -- and we’re looking forward to bringing a new version of this classic to Peacock."
Do you think Peacock will ever become a serious threat to Netflix or HBO Max?
