Peacock made a number of programming announcements during a virtual press tour, including a first season for the Will Forte action-comedy series "MacGruber." The series was inspired by a "Saturday Night Live" sketch parodying "MacGyver," which was spun off into a film in 2010.
- Forte will star in, executive produce and write the series, which will likely also feature appearances from the film's co-stars, Kristen Wiig and Ryan Phillippe.
- Peacock also ordered a new late-night topical comedy series from "Black-ish" producer and former "Daily Show" correspondent Larry Wilmore.
- The platform also announced that the comedy series "Girls5eva," from producers Tina Fey and Robert Carlock ("30 Rock"), will star singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles.
