PEACOCK RELEASES OFFICIAL JULY 18 PREMIERE DATE AND TEASER DURING WWE WRESTLEMANIA XL FOR "THOSE ABOUT TO DIE"

From Director and Executive Producer Roland Emmerich (The Day After Tomorrow, Independence Day) and starring two-time Academy Award winner Anthony Hopkins alongside a talented ensemble cast including Iwan Rheon, Sara Martins, Tom Hughes, Jojo Macari and Moe Hashim

A NOTE FROM ROLAND EMMERICH (DIRECTOR/EXECUTIVE PRODUCER):

I have always been fascinated by the history of the Roman Empire. So much still seems relevant for our society today - from the entanglement of politics and sports to the disciplines of the competitions, which haven't changed much either over the last 2000 years. The most electrifying spectacles for the masses still involve two men in an arena, beating each other up, and the chariots of today are called race cars whose drivers still crash and often pay with their lives.

When my partners Gianni Nunnari and Harald Kloser put Daniel Mannix's Those About to Die on my reading list, I was immediately hooked. My goal was to create a show that explores a side of Rome never told before - the dirty business of entertaining the masses, giving the mob what they want most... blood and sport. Let the games begin.

All episodes of THOSE ABOUT TO DIE launch July 18, just in time for viewers to also watch the 2024 Paris Olympics (July 26 - Aug 11, 2024). Every event of the Summer Games will stream live on Peacock. Opening Ceremony coverage begins July 26 at Noon ET on NBC and Peacock.

ABOUT WWE WRESTLEMANIA XL

WrestleMania XL is WWE's annual 2-night pop culture extravaganza where the highest-profile match-ups and Superstars showcase their skills. Taking place this weekend, Saturday, April 6, and Sunday, April 7, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at Lincoln Financial Field at 4 PT/7PM ET, this year marks its 40th edition. WrestleMania is the biggest wrestling event of the year and Peacock is excited to exclusively stream it live and debut the first-look teaser for its upcoming gladiator epic, THOSE ABOUT TO DIE, during today's broadcast on April 7 and in-the arena for all those attending to experience.

Please note, given the live nature of Wrestlemania, we don't yet know when the teaser will run within the show. Thus, we are debuting the assets at the beginning of the broadcast.

ABOUT THOSE ABOUT TO DIE
