“MacGruber” Heading to NBC Peacock as TV Series in 2021

Who woulda ever thought we’d be getting a “MacGruber” television series? Probably Will Forte, to be honest. Maybe Lorne Michaels.

We digress-

Just this morning, NBC’s streaming service Peacock announced a whole mess o series and projects they’re working on, and “MacGruber” is one of the titles.

“After rotting in prison for over a decade, America’s ultimate hero and uber patriot MacGruber is finally released. His mission: to take down a mysterious villain from his past: Brigadier Commander Enos Queeth. With the entire world in the crosshairs, MacGruber must race against time to defeat the forces of evil — only to find that evil… may be lurking within.”

Keep Going!
