Peacock is shifting ahead with unique programming. The MacGruber present was in development back in January, and now, Peacock has picked it up for sequence.
The information comes out of the CTAM Summer Press Tour–which is changing this season’s TCAs as a result of COVID-19 pandemic. Peacock has ordered eight half-hour episodes of the brand new sequence, which can star Will Forte. Forte will write and government produce, and he is joined by John Solomon and Jorma Taccone, and Taccone will direct–he additionally directed the 2010 movie.
The sequence already looks like it will likely be simply as foolish and ridiculous because the 2010 function movie, because the official synopsis for the present is fairly on the market. “After rotting in prison for over a decade, America’s ultimate hero and uber patriot MacGruber (Will Forte) is finally released. His mission: to take down a mysterious villain from his past–Brigadier Commander Enos Queeth. With the entire world in the crosshairs, MacGruber must race against time to defeat the forces of evil–only to find that evil… may be lurking within.”
The MacGruber character originated as a sketch on NBC’s Saturday Night Live. Forte performed the character, which was a spoof on the ’80s motion TV sequence MacGuyver. MacGruber is a particular operative that may take abnormal supplies and make it into one thing that may get him out of a sticky state of affairs. However, like talked about above, typically this stuff might be so simple as sticking a celery stalk between your butt cheeks to create a distraction.
