  • NBCUniversal Names Streaming Service 'Peacock,' to Launch in 2020

Details are sparse for the new BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, but the series will be overseen by MR. ROBOT's Sam Esmail.

Comcast's NBCUniversal said Tuesday its upcoming streaming service will be called Peacock, in an homage to NBC's logo.

And because everything old is new again, the show joins two other reboots in the works for Peacock - a revival of the 1989-92 high school comedy "Saved By the Bell", which starred Mario Lopez, Tiffani Thiessen, Mark-Paul Gosselar, Dustin Diamond and Elizabeth Berkley, and the sci-fi classic "Battlestar Galactica".

NBCUniversal's foray into the streaming wars has been a long time coming, but now the mysterious competitor to Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and more has a name - and a few reasons for genre fans already overwhelmed with choice to tune in. The 202o Olympics will reportedly play a major role in promoting Peacock, with a number of the streaming service's new original series set to debut after the Games. NBC says it will announce pricing closer to launch.

Peacock will also have movies, including Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, American Pie, Bridesmaids, A Beautiful Mind and Back to the Future. UCP's "Queer as Folk" reboot and "One of Us is Lying" had also moved their development over to Peacock from Bravo and E!, respectively.

Reuters had reported in January that an ad-free version of the NBC service will be available for about the same price as other subscription video services. For example, when NBCU previously announced it would have "The Office" on the service, it noted that the former sitcom wouldn't hit Peacock until 2021, after its current deal with Netflix expires. This one is co-created by Michael Schur, who's had a hand in everything from The Office to Parks and Recreation to Brooklyn Nine-Nine to The Good Place, so it may be worth keeping an eye on.
