Peacock has revealed the teaser trailer for new comedy series Killing It, starring Craig Robinson and premiering on the streaming service in April. We also have no less than nine photos, which you can view by scrolling down.
Killing It is a comedy about class, capitalism and one man’s quest to achieve the American dream. And also about hunting really big snakes.
In addition to Craig Robinson, the series also stars Claudia O’Doherty, Rell Battle, Scott MacArthur, Stephanie Nogueras, Wyatt Walter, and Jet Miller.
The project reunites Robinson with Brooklyn Nine-Nine co-creator Dan Goor and executive producer Luke Del Tredici. Robinson recurred on NBC’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine as Jake’s friend and nemesis, Doug Judy (aka the Pontiac Bandit).
The co-showrunners, writers and executive producers are Goor and Del Tredici. Robinson, Mark Schulman and Mo Marable also executive produce.
Produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, the series is directed by Mo Marable.
“We love all the ambitious, challenging, thematically-rich series that populate the current peak-TV landscape. We also love jokes,” said Goor and Del Tredici.
“So, we tried to make a show that could deliver both. We wanted ‘Killing It’ to explore America’s quasi-religious obsession with entrepreneurship and wealth, and we also wanted it to be funny. Really, really funny. Plus, we wanted it to have big snakes.”
They added: “It’s a daunting creative balancing act, but lucky for us, we were writing for Craig Robinson, aka the most likable man in the world.
“His hilarious, effortlessly charming performance grounds even the wildest comic moments in something deeply human and relatable.”
