Peacock has unveiled the complete list of new content coming to its library in April, and it includes a great mix of original scripted and unscripted series, as well as exclusive live sports and events.
What’s new on Peacock this April?
The entire 10-episode season 1 of Killing It will be available to stream on Peacock starting April 14th. From the minds behind Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the upcoming Peacock original is about class, capitalism, and one man’s quest to achieve the American dream.
The rags-to-riches sitcom follows Craig Foster (Craig Robinson), a bank security guard living in Miami and struggling to make ends meet. Co-parenting his pre-teen daughter, Vanessa (Jet Miller), with his ex-wife, Camille (Stephanie Nogueras), Craig has grand plans to become an entrepreneur, but no way of getting his ideas off the ground. However, after a chance encounter with Jillian (Claudia O’Doherty), a down-on-her-luck driver for a ride-hailing service, who introduces him to the wild world of state-sponsored python hunting, Craig decides to go all in to make his American dream come true.
Meanwhile, So Dumb It’s Criminal, an unscripted series about the world’s dumbest criminals, is set to premiere on Peacock on April 20th. Starting that day, the complete eight-episode season 1 of the Peacock original, hosted by Snoop Dogg, will be available to stream on the platform.
April also marks the return of the Irish thriller drama Smother on Peacock. The entire six-episode season 2 of the series will arrive on the streaming service on April 28th.
Set in a small town on the wild and rugged coast of County Clare, the series follows devoted mother Val Ahern (Dervla Kirwan), who is determined to protect her family, particularly her three daughters Jenny (Niamh Walsh), Anna (Gemma-Leah Devereux), and Grace (Seána Kerslake), at any cost. When Val’s husband Denis (Stuart Graham) is found dead at the foot of a cliff near their home the morning after a family party, Val attempts to investigate the events that unfolded the night before.
On the wrestling front, the WWE Hall of Fame 2022 will exclusively stream on Peacock on April 1st, followed by the 2022 NXT Stand & Deliver on April 2nd. Both The Bump and WrestleMania 38 are also set to exclusively stream on Peacock on April 2nd and 3rd.
Peacock has also got soccer fans covered this April, with exclusive Premier League matches, as well as Telemundo’s Spanish-language coverage of Liga MX and World Cup Draw. Football fans can also look forward to streaming the Notre Dame Blue-Gold Game exclusively on Peacock on April 23rd as well as USFL games on the platform throughout the month.
