Peacock killed Mike Schur’s ‘Dream’


Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

Oh my God, Mike Schur — Parks and Recs and Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Good Place and The Office Mike Schur — was given the greenlight to make a Field of Dreams miniseries at Peacock, and he had cast Kristen Bell, Nick Offerman, William Jackson Harper, and Andre Braugher AND THEY BUILT THE FIELD IN IOWA, but then Peacock canceled the project before they could start filming. “We built it and they didn’t get the chance to show up,” Schur joked. I am not even a huge fan of the film, it’s fine or whatever, but I would have watched every second of this. DISAPPOINTED.
