The ‘Silicon Valley’ co-creator and star will collaborate once again, this time both as creators and voice actors, on the upcoming adult animated show that just received a straight-to-series order from the streamer.
Need a new show to binge? Silicon Valley co-creator Mike Judge and series star Zach Woods are reuniting on Peacock’s first adult animated series, In the Know, which has received a straight-to-series order from the streamer. Judge and Woods will create, executive producer, and star, along with Brandon Gardner, who will create and executive produce, and Greg Daniels, who will executive produce.
The show’s official logline reads, “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.”
“In the Know will capture the conversations so many of us have in our daily lives in a heightened, hilarious way” said Lisa Katz, president of scripted content for NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “We’re excited to be working with the very best in the business in Mike, Greg, Zach and Brandon, and our partners at Universal Television.”
Judge and Daniels are also developing another adult animated series for Peacock called Best Buds, which follows, “Calvin, who works at his family-owned flower shop (called Best Buds), the ‘crown jewel of the local strip mall.’ When his best friend, Evelyn, comes back to town after dropping out of grad school, he gets her a job at the shop, and they begin a mission to bring the place out of the 1980s and into the present.”
Judge, Daniels, and Dustin Davis will executive produce In the Know under the Bandera Entertainment banner in collaboration with Universal Television.
