MacGruber 2 Is Happening as a TV Show on NBC’s Peacock Streaming Service

It finally happened: MacGruber 2 is in preparation. The project, however, has taken a different form as it will instead be turned into a series on NBC Peacock's next streaming service, which is slated to launch later this year. Will Forte returns to take over the role from which he hails on Saturday Night Live before bringing him to the big screen. Forte is also ready to produce the series.

Jorma Taccone told us in February 2019 that they were making aggressive purchases MacGruber as opposed to TV series to another film. Taccone revealed that they started developing a script in 2017, but it never came to fruition as a movie. Taccone directed the 2010 film and is expected to write and produce the series alongside John Solomon. Lorne Michaels, John Goldwyn, Andrew Singer and Erin David are also executive producers. NBC has released the following synopsis for the show.

"After rotted in jail for more than & # 39; a decade, the ultimate hero and American patriot MacGruber [19459006Samission:éliminerunmystérieuxméchantdesonpassélecommandantdebrigadeEnosQueethAveclemondeentierenlignedemire MacGruber (Will Forte), Vicki and Piper must race against time to defeat the forces of evil. Only to discover that evil … can hide in indoors. "

MacGruber was released in 2010. Although the film Certainly didn't capture a lot of critical love at the time (it currently enjoys a 48% approval rate for Rotten Tomatoes), it has become a classic of cult comedy in the decade since its release. Made for a budget of $ 10 million, the comedy only grossed $ 9 million at the box office. With this, progress on monitoring has been slow.

However, things have changed a lot in recent years. Netflix has dominated the industry and now all of the city's major studios are looking to get into the game of streaming. Much of this for a service like Peacock will be exclusive and desirable content. People might not start to see a new movie MacGruber but if it appears on a streaming service , are they "paying for it already? It’s an investment that could potentially pay off.
