Video: Peacock Releases All-New Trailer for “Dr. Death” – Premieres Thursday, July 15
All eight episodes of the limited drama series will drop on Thursday, July 15 on Peacock.
[via press release from Peacock]
· Peacock releases all-new second trailer and show art for DR. DEATH. All eight episodes of the limited drama series will drop on Thursday, July 15 on Peacock, which was announced at the DR. DEATH world premiere screening and panel at Tribeca Festival last night.

· Watch/share the all-new trailer now:

· Based on Wondery’s hit podcast, DR. DEATH is inspired by the terrifying true story of Dr. Christopher Duntsch (Joshua Jackson), a rising star in the Dallas medical community. Young, charismatic and ostensibly brilliant, Dr. Duntsch was building a flourishing neurosurgery practice when everything suddenly changed. Patients entered his operating room for complex but routine spinal surgeries and left permanently maimed or dead. As victims piled up, two fellow physicians, neurosurgeon Robert Henderson (Alec Baldwin) and vascular surgeon Randall Kirby (Christian Slater), as well as Dallas prosecutor Michelle Shughart (AnnaSophia Robb), set out to stop him. DR. DEATH explores the twisted mind of Dr. Duntsch and the failures of the system designed to protect the most defenseless among us.

· The series stars Joshua Jackson, Grace Gummer, AnnaSophia Robb with Christian Slater and Alec Baldwin.

· The series explores the ‘why’ behind Dr. Duntsch’s horrendous operations, while revealing the broken healthcare system that allowed him to slip through the cracks. It celebrates everyday heroes, in this case, two fellow doctors, who went well beyond the call of duty to bring Duntsch to justice.

· DR. DEATH is executive produced by Patrick Macmanus (“The Girl from Plainville”) via his Littleton Road Productions banner, and under his overall deal with UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group. Macmanus also serves as showrunner. Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, Steve Tisch and Taylor Latham also executive produce via Escape Artists, as well as Hernan Lopez and Marshall Lewy of Wondery.

· DR. DEATH features an all-female directing team. Directors include Maggie Kiley (“Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story,” “Riverdale”), who will also executive produce the first two episodes, Jennifer Morrison (Peacock’s ONE OF US IS LYING, “Euphoria”) and So Yong Kim (“Lovesong,” “Grand Army”).



PEACOCK CELEBRATES FEMALE OLYMPIC ATHLETES’ LASTING LEGACY ON THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ATLANTA GAMES





PEACOCK CELEBRATES FEMALE OLYMPIC ATHLETES’ LASTING LEGACY ON THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ATLANTA GAMES

U.S. Fans Can Watch Entire 1996 Women’s Soccer Gold Medal Game
for First Time on July 16

New York, NY—June 15, 2021—As the next generation of gold medalists prepare for the spotlight in Tokyo, Peacock will debut two shows featuring Olympic trailblazers from the 1996 Olympics—The ’96 Effect and The Sisters of ’96: The 1996 USA Women’s Olympic Soccer Team—on the 25th anniversary of the Atlanta Games.

The ’96 Effect is a three-part documentary series, produced by Lookalike Productions, featuring four legendary USA women’s teams who won gold at the Atlanta Games. These women were the first generation who became world-class athletes during the Title IX era, and interviews with them reveal how ’96 USA teams inspired each other, the significance of Title IX on their lives, as well as the impact they made on their sport and female athletics on a global scale:

Basketball: Lisa Leslie, Dawn Staley, Sheryl Swoopes, and head coach Tara VanDerveer
Gymnastics: Amanda Borden, Dominique Dawes, and Shannon Miller
Softball: Laura Berg, Lisa Fernandez, and Dot Richardson
Soccer: Brandi Chastain, Joy Fawcett, Julie Foudy, Mia Hamm, Kristine Lilly, Shannon MacMillan, and Briana Scurry
Tennis great Billie Jean King, broadcasters Bob Costas and Hannah Storm, and contemporary athletes Sue Bird, A’ja Wilson, Carli Lloyd, Cat Osterman, and Monica Abbott ground audiences in what it was like for women competing in 1996, which was the first time softball and women’s soccer were included in the Olympic Games. The ’96 Effect begins streaming June 17.

“What the women of ’96 accomplished was as much a cultural revolution as it was one of the greatest feats in U.S. Olympic history,” said Lisa Lax, co-founder of Lookalike Productions and Executive Producer, The ’96 Effect. “As filmmakers and women who personally benefitted from lifetimes in competitive sport, Nancy and I are thrilled to shine a light on the enduring ripple effect of opportunity made by the remarkable women’s Olympic teams. These stories are bigger than sport—and deserve to be told, shared, and passed along for generations of girls—and boys—to come.”

“It’s an honor to represent your country in international competition. To do it in your home country and win the first-ever women’s soccer tournament at the Olympics makes it even more special and significant,” Foudy said. “It was a thrill to visit the site of our gold-medal win with my teammates and watch that match together for the first time. I’m excited for all of the fans to relive it with us in this documentary.”

When the U.S. Women’s National Team made it to the soccer tournament final, that gold medal match was not fully televised—so now, Peacock is making it available in full for the first time. The match will stream in its entirety on July 16. To mark the occasion, The Sisters of ‘96: The 1996 USA Women’s Olympic Soccer Team is an hour-long special that reunites stars Brandi Chastain, Joy Fawcett, Julie Foudy, Kristine Lilly, Shannon MacMillan, Briana Scurry, and Tisha Venturini on the field where they played that inaugural Olympic final to watch the match together for the first time. Viewers have a front-row seat to their recounting their victory and legacy of their team. The special is produced by NBC Olympics.

Peacock will celebrate female athletes competing at the Tokyo Olympics with On Her Turf at the Olympics. Women have won more than 50% of Team USA’s medals at the last two Summer Olympics and On Her Turf will follow their biggest female stars in Tokyo. On Her Turf at the Olympics will stream Monday–Saturday from 7 to 7:30 p.m. ET and Sunday from 6–6:30 p.m. ET.

“There are so many amazing female Olympians, and we’re proud to have a show dedicated to highlighting their stories in Tokyo,” said Rebecca Chatman, Vice President and Coordinating Producer of Olympic Production. “We are excited to celebrate both the legacy of the 1996 U.S. Women’s teams and to showcase the incredible performances by women in Tokyo with On Her Turf on Peacock.”

These series expand the Peacock Original collection of countdown to Tokyo programming, which also includes Michael Phelps: Medals, Memories & More, The Greatest Race, My Pursuit: Life, Legacy, & Jordan Burroughs, and In Deep with Ryan Lochte. Peacock will also feature daily coverage during the Tokyo Olympics on Tokyo NOW, one of Peacock’s free channels dedicated to Olympic programming.

Peacock is currently available on Google platforms and devices including Android™, Android TV™ devices; Roku; Apple devices including iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD; Chromecast and Chromecast built-in devices; Microsoft’s Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox One S and Xbox One X; Sony PlayStation4 and PlayStation 4 Pro; Samsung Smart TVs; VIZIO SmartCast™ TVs; and LG Smart TVs.

PEACOCK ANNOUNCES ORIGINAL MUSICAL COMEDY SERIES ‘TAKE NOTE’

Peacock announced the comedy series, TAKE NOTE, that follows a group of contestants from across the country competing in a fictional reality singing competition, “Take Note.” 10 half-hour episodes have been ordered, offering additional family and kids programming.

14-year-old Calvin Richards has a wonderful, close-knit family who can survive anything as long as they’re together. And good thing because Calvin was chosen to compete on a tween reality singing show – “Take Note” – and they’re going to spend the summer navigating the crazy ups and downs of new friendships and competitions, while being thrust into the national spotlight.
TAKE NOTE will introduce a new generation to Pop, R&B, Country, and Rock classics along with originals by emerging musicians written specifically for the series.

Personalities clash and tension quickly escalates as a crew member’s grudges start to rock the boat and disrupt the workflow. In a shocking franchise first, a serious crisis occurs before the opening charter, leaving the staff to worry if the season will be over before it even begins. While unprecedented permutations in the crew structure disrupt the dynamic of the boat, one department head’s new management style causes friction that spans to the entire crew. Amidst roommate issues and health scares, the staff encounters one demanding charter group after another, all while continuing to provide the seven-star service that is expected in the Med. Between charters, long workdays lead to late night hijinks, surprising hook-ups and one heated, over-the-top argument in the hot tub that leaves the group at a crossroads.
