From the creators of Make, Amy Poehler and Nicolle Yaron, is coming Cook in the oven, a series of holiday events where teams of two talented home bakers compete with their most delectable savory and sweet edible creations.
Contestants hope to win a big cash prize and who’s better to judge and criticize while on vacation than three real-life, opinionated grannies, who are fantastic bakers themselves. Amy will personally hand over the hosting reigns to two famous friends to host this six-part bow competition.
Like the holidays, Cook in the oven will evoke a cheerful and comedic spirit at a time of year when we come together to honor our traditions and indulge in baked goods to the limit.

TOP CHEF FAMILY STYLE
Peacock ordered Top Chef family style, a new family cooking competition featuring exceptionally talented young chefs who will each team up with an adult family partner for a chance to be crowned champions.
Grammy Award-winning World Central – and new mom! – Meghan Trainor is expected to host Top Chef family style. Acclaimed chef, James Beard Award winner and best-selling cookbook author Marcus Samuelsson will serve as Chief Justice.
In Top Chef family style, the most talented young chefs from across the country will sharpen their knives and compete to prove their culinary skills have aged to perfection. In a whole new twist, kitchen wonders will each be paired with an adult family member to act as their partner.
Together, the Chef Duos will face off in a series of exciting Quickfire and Elimination challenges, bringing the perfect blend of high stakes, jaw-dropping talent and heartwarming humor that families across generations can enjoy. Each week, the chef duos will showcase their culinary prowess and teamwork, and at the end of their epic journeys, a chef duo will win the coveted title and be crowned the winners of Top Chef family style.
Trainor and Samuelsson, along with a series of surprising and iconic guest judges, will serve at the judges’ table.
Top Chef family style is produced by Emmy Award-winning production company Magical Elves with Casey Kriley, Jo Sharon, Hillary Olsen and showrunner Claire Kosloff as executive producers.
JUNIOR AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR
Peacock announced the pickup for season three of the awesome athletic competition series American Ninja Warrior Junior. Fifteen episodes have been ordered.
American Ninja Warrior Junior is back and more than ever. This season, the series takes the nation’s top junior athletes and puts them on the world’s most iconic course to tackle some of the toughest obstacles yet. They will put their mental and physical strength to the test by competing against each other in very competitive, very inspiring and very fun races. These junior athletes will bring their best ninja skills, indomitable spirit and fearless attitude to the course, but only three junior athletes will become the next American Ninja Warrior Junior Champions.
Matt Iseman (American ninja warrior) and Akbar Gbajabiamila (American ninja warrior) will return as hosts, alongside touchline reporter, on-air personality and gold medalist swimmer Victoria Arlen.
The new season will feature surprise guests, stunt races and all new courses with ambitious new obstacles designed by our challenge experts with the help of young fans.
American Ninja Warrior Junior is produced by A. Smith & Co. Productions with Arthur Smith, Kent Weed, Frank Sinton and Jackson Nguyen as executive producers. Sharalynn Cornwall is co-executive producer.
UNDER THE BRIDGE BOTTOM UNDER
Peacock had ordered Under the bridge at the bottom to the series. Under Deck is heading to Australia for its first season launch on Peacock. Under the bridge at the bottom will showcase the floor / bottom of a real working super-yacht.
The long hours and high stress of meeting the wants and needs of their well-heeled guests above deck, while navigating the stress and politics of life below deck, are all part of the job. Under the bridge at the bottom will present an additional unique challenge to the yacht crew, as the main attractions in the area are not just on the water, but underwater.
This season will include scuba diving and underwater adventures in some of the most beautiful places in the world, so the usual five-star service will be even more difficult for those adventurous boaters who will have access to a glamorous lifestyle and to exotic benefits that few people will ever experience.
Under the bridge at the bottom is produced by 51 Minds. Nadine Rajabi, Mark Cronin, Courtland Cox, Cristina Lopez and Tania Hamidi are executive producers with Christian Sarabia and Zachary Klein as executive producers of 51 Minds.
