PEACOCK RELEASES OFFICIAL TRAILER AND ANNOUNCES STAR-STUDDED LIVE ACTION GUEST INTERVIEWEE LINEUP FOR "IN THE KNOW"

Guest Interviewees Include Kaia Gerber, Jonathan Van Ness, Ken Burns, Finn Wolfhard, Norah Jones, Tegan and Sara, Nicole Byer, Roxane Gay, Mike Tyson, Jorge Masvidal and Hugh Laurie

The Series From Zach Woods (Silicon Valley, The Office), Brandon Gardner and Mike Judge (Beavis and Butt-Head, King of the Hill) Premieres January 25

A NOTE FROM ZACH WOODS (CREATOR/SHOWRUNNER/EXECUTIVE PRODUCER/STAR) AND BRANDON GARDNER (CREATOR/SHOWRUNNER/EXECUTIVE PRODUCER)

We love public radio. It's engaging and comforting. But it also reflects aspects of ourselves that we're embarrassed by. Which is why we created a show about an NPR host who is, sadly, an only slightly exaggerated version of ourselves.

We're privileged, well intentioned, guilty hypocrites. We buy ethically-sourced dog treats and have them delivered by people who are penalized for bathroom breaks. We put "No Justice No Peace" signs next to our home security lawn decals. We're sanctimonious doofuses who should be ridiculed more.

As we get more isolated in our respective echo chambers, we're desperate to connect with people who are different from us through honest conversation and humor. We try to provide both on the show. (And even if you think our comedy is literal trash, we hope you'll enjoy the gorgeous animation from the stop-motion geniuses at ShadowMachine.)

We want this show to start funny, scary, friendly conversations. We want to portray people who are possibly irredeemable but hopefully still loveable. And at the center of all of this is a frail overconfident male puppet with a woman's name: Lauren Caspian.

ABOUT THE SERIES

ABOUT IN THE KNOW

Lauren Caspian is NPR's third most popular host. He's a well-meaning, hypocritical nimrod, just like you and me. He's also a stop motion puppet. Each episode follows the making of an episode of Lauren's show In the Know, in which Lauren conducts in-depth interviews with real world human guests. Lauren collaborates with a diverse crew of NPR staff. They are also puppets and nimrods.
