Today, Peacock started to roll out a new feature showing the top shows and movies on Peacock. Peacock is testing this new feature to help Peacock subscribers find out about popular new movies and TV shows that they can check out.
This new feature is being tested on Peacock for only about 20% of subscribers, according to Peacock. This top shows and movies list will be updated multiple times during the day to make sure it is the most current.
This new row on the home screen will show the most popular new shows that have been released in the last 90 days on Peacock, helping subscribers find new shows and movies.
This all comes as last week Seth MacFarlane announced that he is bringing everyone’s favorite trash-talking teddy bear to the small screen. The Ted TV series will debut on Peacock on January 11 and offer fans a sneak peek.
The limited, seven-episode long show is set in 1993. Ted, voiced by MacFarlane, is back home in Framingham, Massachusetts, with his best friend, 16-year-old John Bennett, played by Max Burkholder. It serves as a prequel to the Ted movies and is based on the “timeless truth that being sixteen sucks.”
“The only thing that makes it tolerable is going through it with a friend, even if that friend is a has-been magical teddy bear with a foul mouth and a proclivity for drug use,” said the show’s creators.
Scott Grimes and Alanna Ubach play John’s parents, Matty and Susan, and Giorgia Whigham is cast as his cousin Blaire.
