A series based on the Kevin Costner classic “Field of Dreams” is in the works at Peacock.
Written and Executive Produced by Michael Schur, the series is said to be a “reimagining” of the iconic film.
“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,” said 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.”
Last week, Costner turned up at the Yankees and White Sox game – appearing out of the corn field – at the MLB Field of Dreams.
