[via press release from Peacock]
OFFICIAL TRAILER AND KEY ART FOR PEACOCK LIMITED DOC SERIES I LOVE YOU, YOU HATE ME 2-PART SERIES PREMIERES WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12

www.PeacockTV.com

ABOUT THE SERIES

I Love You, You Hate Me is a limited doc series chronicling the rise and fall of Barney the Dinosaur’s furious backlash – and what it says about the human need to hate. From Barney-bashing to frat parties to homicidal video games, something in American society broke into a million pieces, and it’s never been put together again… or is this just who we were all along?

Quote from Joel Chiodi, Head of Documentaries and SVP of Strategic Development at Scout Productions – “I Love You, You Hate Me unpacks how a children’s character who stood for inclusion, understanding, and kindness birthed a movement of anger and criticism that threatened the show, its creators, and their futures. As it spotlights the beginnings of modern-day hate culture, this documentary traces the creation of the character and how it took a toll on the people closest to it, examining the surprising and lingering impact the ‘Big Purple Dinosaur’ left on American society.”

Quote from Director, Tommy Avallone – “Barney came out on television when I was just 10 years old, and I admittedly didn’t understand him. As a teenager, for one of my birthdays I asked my aunt to make me a Barney costume, so my friends and I could beat him up on camera. Several years later, creating this docu-series, it feels good to be on the other side and no longer a Barney hater. Now having children of my own, I understand all the love that went into making the purple dinosaur.”

Season 2 of Peacock’s Original Must-Watch Teen Murder Mystery ONE OF US IS LYING to Premiere on Thursday, October 20 With All 8 Episodes Dropping at Launch

📱🔪SIMON SAYS: let the games begin! 📱🔪

Season 2 of One Of Us Is Lying is streaming October 20 on Peacock.

QUOTE FROM WRITER/ SHOWRUNNER / EXECUTIVE PRODUCER ERICA SALEH

A NOTE FROM ERICA SALEH – WRITER/ SHOWRUNNER / EXECUTIVE PRODUCER: “When I first read Karen McManus’s novel, I was surprised and thrilled by the mystery. But what I really fell in love with, what made me want to make this show, were the characters. On its surface, One of Us is Lying is a murder mystery, and that part is thrilling to write and (I hope!) thrilling to watch. But, at its heart, this is a character drama about teenagers growing up and finding their way to live more authentic, honest lives. In the first season our heroes began as high school archetypes straight out of The Breakfast Club: The Nerd, The Jock, The Beauty, and The Bad Boy. But after witnessing a classmate die and becoming suspects in his murder, they were forced to become more honest about who they are and what they want. Over the course of the season we peeled back the layers and revealed the real, complex kids fighting to break free of these clichés. Our heroes stood up to their controlling parents, came out of the closet, left toxic relationships, dealt with the stresses of college applications… and, yes, solved a murder. In Season Two, we continue this surprising emotional journey as our kids reckon with the thrill and fear of showing the world who they really are… while hiding a deadly secret and being tortured by the mysterious Simon Says. And we have a ton of juicy, soapy fun while we do it! The most important thing to me in writing a show for teenage audiences, is to put smart, complex, authentic characters on screen, and to take their emotions seriously. Being a teenager is thrilling, and it’s also terrifying. Figuring out who you are, and what you want is confusing and it can feel so so lonely. My greatest hope is that seeing this show will make our young audience feel more seen and less alone – and that it will make them laugh, cry, and scream at the same time. Luckily, these characters are brought to life by an ensemble of breakout stars and we are so excited for more viewers to discover this absurdly talented and gorgeous cast, and fall in love with them, as we have.”

A NOTE FROM DAVID E. KELLEY – SHOWRUNNER, EP AND WRITER

Dror Mishani wrote a riveting and emotionally complicated series of books, the center of which is Avraham. Avi is a deeply mysterious, spiritual and compelling detective unlike any protagonist I’ve encountered before. Jeff Wilbusch brings him to rich and hypnotic life in front of the camera, and behind the camera Barry Levinson is… Barry Levinson. What a privilege to have him at the helm. Add Hans Zimmer to the mix, and the final product is something we hope thrills, moves, and instills a bit of hope in the audience.

ABOUT THE SERIES

STREAMING NOW ON PEACOCK

Stream The #1 Animated Movie of The Year Exclusively on Peacock

Starring Steve Carell, Russell Brand, Taraji P. Henson, Michelle Yeoh and Julie Andrews

ABOUT MINIONS: THE RISE OF GRU

From the biggest global animated franchise in history, comes the origin story of how the world’s greatest supervillain first met his iconic Minions, forged cinema’s most despicable crew and faced off against the most unstoppable criminal force ever assembled in Minions: The Rise of Gru.

Long before he becomes the master of evil, Gru (Oscar(R) nominee Steve Carell) is just a 12-year-old boy in 1970s suburbia, plotting to take over the world from his basement.

It’s not going particularly well. When Gru crosses paths with the Minions, including Kevin, Stuart, Bob, and Otto – a new Minion sporting braces and a desperate need to please – this unexpected family joins forces. Together, they build their first lair, design their first weapons, and strive to execute their first missions.

When the infamous supervillain supergroup, the Vicious 6, oust their leader – legendary martial arts fighter Wild Knuckles (Oscar(R) winner Alan Arkin) – Gru, their most devoted fanboy, interviews to become their newest member. The Vicious 6 is not impressed by the diminutive, wannabe villain, but then Gru outsmarts (and enrages) them, and he suddenly finds himself the mortal enemy of the apex of evil. With Gru on the run, the Minions attempt to master the art of kung fu to help save him, and Gru discovers that even bad guys need a little help from their friends.

Featuring more spectacular action than any film in Illumination history and packed with the franchise’s signature subversive humor, Minions: The Rise of Gru stars a thrilling new cast, including, the Vicious 6: Taraji P. Henson as cool and confident leader Belle Bottom, whose chain belt doubles as a lethal disco-ball mace; Jean-Claude Van Damme as the nihilistic Jean Clawed, who’s armed (literally) with a giant robotic claw; Lucy Lawless as Nunchuck, whose traditional nun’s habit hides her deadly nun-chucks; Dolph Lundgren as Swedish roller-skate champion Svengeance, who dispenses his enemies with spin kicks from his spiked skates; and Danny Trejo as Stronghold, whose giant iron hands are both a menace to others and a burden to him.

The film also stars Russell Brand as Young Dr. Nefario, an aspiring mad scientist, Michelle Yeoh as Master Chow, an acupuncturist with mad kung fu skills, and Oscar(R) winner Julie Andrews as Gru’s maddeningly self-absorbed mom.

Steered by the franchise’s original creators, Minions: The Rise of Gru is produced by visionary Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and his longtime collaborators Janet Healy and Chris Renaud. The film is directed by returning franchise filmmaker Kyle Balda (Despicable Me 3, Minions), co-directed by Brad Ableson (The Simpsons) and Jonathan del Val (The Secret Life of Pets films), and features the iconic voice of Pierre Coffin as the Minions and a killer ’70s soundtrack courtesy of legendary Grammy-winning music producer Jack Antonoff. https://www.minionsmovie.com/

OFFICIAL DATE ANNOUNCEMENT AND TRAILER

PEACOCK ANNOUNCES PREMIERE DATE AND RELEASES OFFICIAL TRAILER FOR NEW ORIGINAL COMEDY SPECIAL LADYKILLER FROM JENA FRIEDMAN

THE LATEST STAND UP SPECIAL FROM JENA FRIEDMAN DROPS ON PEACOCK SEPTEMBER 30

This fall, Jena Friedman (Indefensible and Not Funny: Essays on Life) takes America by storm in her new comedy special, Ladykiller, premiering on Peacock Sept 30. The one-hour comedy set explores the myriad topics that affect women in the U.S. from crime to marriage and reproductive rights. Throughout the special, Jena explores hot button issues facing women in modern day America with a no-holds-barred humor making it the most charged of her stand-up performances to date.

QUOTE FROM JENA FRIEDMAN, WRITER/EXECUTIVE PRODUCER/DIRECTOR

“I wasn’t pregnant when I sold the special and Roe hadn’t yet been overturned, so the confluence of those two things happening as I was prepping to tape Ladykiller, made me really appreciate having a platform where I could talk about some of the things I have been losing sleep over since Roe was overturned, and to do so particularly before the midterms. I hope it will resonate with viewers, and on a personal level, it has been incredibly cathartic.”

QUOTE FROM KATIE HOCKMEYER EVP LATE NIGHT PROGRAMMING & COMEDY SPECIALS, NBCUNIVERSAL TELEVISION & STREAMING

“We are so excited to be the home of Jena’s newest comedy hour. Ladykiller joins our slate of diverse and unique voices, as we continue to become the go-to destination for truly “special” comedy specials.”
