The team behind Brooklyn Nine-Nine killed it with the comedy and jokes on their half-hour series, now, they’re sending the show’s beloved recurring character actor Craig Robinson to uncharted territory with Peacock’s Killing It.

All 10 episodes of the upcoming series from Dan Goor and Luke Del Tredici will arrive Thursday, April 14 on the NBCUniversal streamer. Described as a comedy about class, capitalism, and a man’s quest to accomplish the American dream, Killing It is a series that happens to be about hunting really big snakes.

“We love all the ambitious, challenging, thematically-rich series that populate the current peak-TV landscape. We also love jokes. So, we tried to make a show that could deliver both,” Goor and Del Tredici shared in a joint statement. “We wanted Killing It to explore America’s quasi-religious obsession with entrepreneurship and wealth, and we also wanted it to be funny. Really, really funny. Plus, we wanted it to have big snakes.”

“It’s a daunting creative balancing act, but lucky for us, we were writing for Craig Robinson, aka the most likable man in the world,” they continued. “His hilarious, effortlessly charming performance grounds even the wildest comic moments in something deeply human and relatable.”
