MACGRUBER TV Series: FIRST LOOK

MACGRUBER TV Series: FIRST LOOK

Will Forte posted a set photo to Instagram recently in order to hype up the upcoming MacGruber TV series coming to Peacock soon. MacGruber started out as a recurring Saturday Night Live skit of the same name which, although a little cheesy at times, had its chuckle-worthy moments. It was a gentle mockery of the more serious drama MacGyver starring Richard Dean Anderson. The parody skit was later adapted into a movie that debuted in 2010 without much fare at the box office. Regardless of its lack of critical success, the movie is considered a cult classic amongst its diehard fans.
In the photo, Forte and two other members of the main cast – Ryan Phillipe (Lt. Dixon Piper) and Kristen Wiig (Vicki Gloria St. Elmo) stand triumphantly, backlit by a beautiful, blue-sky sunset during the golden hour. Phillippe stares down the camera with his muscly arms crossed, while Forte and Wiig are flexing a classic superhero pose with their hands on their hips. There’s a building that looks like it has the words “Albuquerque Police” on the front. Phillippe is tagged in the post, but Wiig is not. Phillippe commented on the photo with a single word: “Squad”.

There was a reported MacGruber 2 sequel in the works a few years ago, but cult comedy sequels are difficult to get off the ground even under the most ideal of circumstances – and the first movie’s circumstances were anything but ideal. Instead, Forte and fans are settling for a MacGruber series on NBC’s streaming service, Peacock. Earlier this month, Forte appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers to announce that filming had begun, and even read a profanity-laced monologue from one of the upcoming episode’s scripts.

If you’re one of the many excited MacGruber fans, you can check out the Instagram post below. There is no official release date yet for the show, but it is expected to debut in late 2021.

‘MacGruber’ Will Forte Comedy Picked up to series by Peacock

‘MacGruber’ Will Forte Comedy Picked up to series by Peacock

NBCUniversal’s streaming platform Peacock continues to build up its original comedy slate with a straight-to-series series order to MacGruber, starring, co-written and executive produced by Will Forte.
The action comedy, which stems from Forte’s recurring MacGyver parody sketch on Saturday Night Live, was part of Peacock’s inaugural development slate. It has received an eight-episode order, with Forte reprising his role as MacGuber.

The Peacock series is an adaptation of the 2010 feature film of the same title. I hear Forte’s co-stars, Ryan Phillippe and Kristen Wiig, are finalizing deals to join the series.

After rotting in prison for over a decade, America’s ultimate hero and uber patriot MacGruber (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.

Forte serves as writer and executive producer alongside John Solomon and Jorma Taccone (who will also direct), the creative team behind the 2010 movie. Lorne Michaels, John Goldwyn, Andrew Singer and Erin David also serve as executive producers. MacGruber is from Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, and Broadway Video.

Peacock’s original slate has a strong comedy focus. On the streamer, MacGruber will join such series as the Punky Brewster and Saved By the Bell reboots, ’90s girl band comedy Girls5Eva from Tina Fey and Meredith Scardino; Rutherford Falls, a small-town comedy from Mike Schur and Sierra Ornelas; and the revived A.P. Bio.

MacGruber TV Series Confirmed for NBC Peacock

MacGruber TV Series Confirmed for NBC Peacock

“MacGruber” and Laverne Cox are officially in business with Peacock.

NBCUniversal’s nascent streaming service is developing two comedy series — one based on the character Will Forte originated on “Saturday Night Live” and another starring Cox with the legendary Norman Lear attached to executive produce.

In “MacGruber,” after rotting in prison for over a decade, America’s ultimate hero and uber patriot MacGruber (played by 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, Vicki, and Piper must race against time to defeat the forces of evil, only to find that evil may be lurking within.

Forte is a writer and executive producer on the project in addition to starring. Jorma Taccone and John Solomon are also writing and executive producing. Lorne Michaels, John Goldwyn, Andrew Singer, Erin David of Broadway Video will executive produce. The series hails from Universal Television.

The character started out on “SNL” before starring in his own movie in 2010. Along with Forte, it starred Kristen Wiig as Vicki and Ryan Phillippe as Piper. Val Kilmer starred as the villainous Dieter Von Cunth. The film ultimately grossed just over $9 million in theaters against a $10 million budget.

The Cox series is titled “Clean Slate.” It follows old school car wash owner Henry (George Wallace), who is thrilled that his estranged child is returning to Alabama after 17 years. However, Henry has a lot of soul searching to do when the child he thought was a son returns as the determined, proud, trans woman, Desiree (Cox).

Cox and Wallace are writers and executive producers as well, alongside fellow writer and executive producer Dan Ewen. Lear executive produces along with Brent Miller, with Paul Hilepo producing. Sony Pictures Television will produce.

News of the development comes just hours ahead of NBCU’s investor presentation for Peacock, where they will demonstrate the streaming service publicly for the first time. The streamer also announced a series order for a follow-up to “Punky Brewster” earlier on Thursday.
