Based on Universal Pictures’ film Field of Dreams, the series will reportedly “reimagine the mixture of family, baseball, Iowa, and magic that makes the movie so enduring and beloved.”
“Through the years, Field of Dreams has remained a fan favorite, maintaining its rightful position in the zeitgeist,” said Lisa Katz, President, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “It’s whimsical and grounded, a space where Mike Schur excels, and we’re looking forward to bringing a new version of this classic to Peacock.”
“Field of Dreams is an iconic Universal Film title from venerable producers Lawrence and Charles Gordon, that we could only have entrusted to Mike Schur,” added Erin Underhill, President, Universal Television. “His talent, his love for baseball, and his reverence for its themes make him the perfect choice to revisit this beloved film that evokes nostalgia and visceral emotion in so many of its fans.”
The series marks another project that Peacock has with Schur, following the critically acclaimed comedy Rutherford Falls also from Sierra Teller Ornelas and Ed Helms that was recently picked up for a second season.
