Peacock announced today the straight-to-series order of the streamer’s first adult animated comedy IN THE KNOW. Mike Judge (Beavis and Butt-Head, Silicon Valley, King of the Hill), Zach Woods (Silicon Valley, The Office) and Brandon Gardner will co-create and executive produce. Judge and Woods will both star. Alongside Judge, Greg Daniels (The Office) and Dustin Davis executive produce for Bandera Entertainment.

In In The Know, Lauren Caspian is NPR’s third most popular host. He’s a well-meaning, hypocritical nimrod, just like you and me. He’s also a stop motion puppet. Each episode follows the making of an episode of Lauren’s show In the Know, in which Lauren conducts in-depth interviews with real world human guests. Lauren collaborates with a diverse crew of NPR staff. They are also puppets and nimrods.
FINALLY we get an adult animated comedy heading to Peacock. This after a recent tease for Best Buds and Colony 2’s announcement from a number of years ago, the streamer finally has something here and it sounds legit.
