Peacock Productions is a long-form production unit of NBC News. The division, established in 2007, produces factual programming such as news specials, documentary specials, and reality series. While some of its productions do air on other NBCUniversal outlets (such as the NBC network and MSNBC), it produces programs for competing broadcasters as well, such as the networks of Discovery, A+E Networks, and Lifetime among others. Peacock has served as an incubator for new production technologies that have later been adopted by NBC News, such as tapeless recording.[1]

History

Peacock was established in 2007 by the merger of NBC News Productions, NBC Media Productions, along with the staff of NBC's newsmagazine Dateline. The merger came in response to the growing popularity of non-fiction programming on television (with a particular emphasis on cable channels and digital outlets), and in the wake of a recent series of budget cuts at NBC Universal that affected NBC News's long-form production units[2]

In May 2012, Marc Victor was placed in charged of the newly formed TOMORROW production division of Peacock.[3]

In 2013, Peacock produced Grand Canyon National Park.[1]

Units

  • TOMORROW uses the “Today” show’s content and talent to develop new programming for broadcast, cable and syndication formed in May 2012.[3]
