NBCUniversal-owned US streamer Peacock has given a straight-to-series order to a television drama adaptation of 1989 movie Field of Dreams.

Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, is producing the series, with Michael Schur (Fremulon) writing and executive producing.

Lisa Katz, president of NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, said: “Through the years, Field of Dreams has remained a fan favourite, maintaining its rightful position in the zeitgeist. 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 marks another project that Peacock has with Schur, following comedy series Rutherford Falls that was recently picked up for a second season.

This is the latest collaboration between NBCUniversal’s television and film studios, with the most recent being a series adaptation of Universal Picture’s comedy Ted announced earlier this year. The live-action series, from executive producer Seth MacFarlane, is also set for Peacock.
