Why Hulu Programming Chief Is Ok Sharing Classic Content Like ‘Svu’ With Rival Streamers

  • The Wrap
Hulu is set to lose “Seinfeld” to Netflix in 2021 and will have to share its library of Dick Wolf’s “Law & Order” shows with NBCUniversal’s new Peacock streaming service. But Craig Erwich, the head of originals for the Disney-owned streaming service, argued on Friday that exclusivity on such library shows is becoming less important to its business model. “For some of these shows, especially ones that have very deep libraries, I don’t know that exclusivity is paramount,” Erwich argued during his executive session at the Television Critics Association press tour. On Thursday, NBCUniversal announced that the full library from Dick Wolf’s currently-airing “Law and Order: Svu,” “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago P.D.,” and “Chicago Med” series, and several seasons of the now-ended “Law and Order” and “Law and Order: Criminal Intent,” will be available on Peacock, the streaming service it’s launching later this year.

Peacock: Pricing Structure, Launch Date Revealed for NBC Universal Streaming Service

NBC Universal's Peacock will open its doors in April for a select group of people, before having a full-fledged launch in July, it has been announced.

Comcast's Xfinity X1 and Flex customers will get early access to the service beginning Wednesday, April 15, while everyone else will be able to stream effective July 15.

NBC Universal has announced a free ad-supported tier for the service called Peaock Free, but there will also be Peacock Premium ($5 a month for Comcast and Cox subscribers and $9.99 for everyone else).

There is a major caveat with the free option, however, with the company noting that subscribers will only have access to “select episodes of marquee Peacock originals,” as opposed to the full seasons the Peacock Premium crowd will have access to.

The network has a lot of scripted series in development, including a Saved by the Bell revival, a Battlestar Galactica reboot, a sequel to Punky Brewster,

‘Law & Order’ Finally Set for Streaming Debut on NBCUniversal’s Peacock
Ch-ching! The original “Law & Order” is finally make its streaming debut later this year on NBCUniversal’s Peacock.

The deal between producer Dick Wolf and NBCU calls for six Wolf Entertainment series to be made available on Peacock. The pact covers more than 1,000 episodes of “Law & Order” plus spinoffs “Law & Order: Svu” and “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” as well as Wolf’s trilogy of Chicago-set dramas for NBC: “Chicago: Fire,” “Chicago: P.D.” and “Chicago: Med.”

The shows are not exclusive to Peacock. The mothership “Law & Order” series, which aired on NBC from 1990 to 2010, will not offer all 456 episodes at the outset, probably because rights are tied up in pre-existing deals. But Peacock will be the first to offer the three core “L&o” series in one place.

‘Two and a Half Men’ to Stream Exclusively on NBCUniversal’s Peacock, Instead of HBO Max

  • The Wrap
‘Two and a Half Men’ to Stream Exclusively on NBCUniversal’s Peacock, Instead of HBO Max
Another modern-classic sitcom has found its streaming home — but it’s not going to the home that produced it. “Two and a Half Men” will stream exclusively on NBCUniversal’s forthcoming streaming service, Peacock, the platform announced during a Comcast investor event in New York on Thursday.

The Charlie Sheen, Jon Cryer, Angus T. Jones — and later Ashton Kutcher — comedy, which ran for 12 seasons from 2003 to 2015 on CBS, was produced by Warner Bros. Television. As you may have heard, that studio’s parent company, WarnerMedia, will be launching its own streaming service, HBO Max, this spring.

The fact that the streaming rights to “Two and a Half Men” were acquired by a direct competitor — which will be the first Svod to house the comedy — is a surprise, given that HBO Max has snapped up the rights to its other classics, like “Friends” and “The West Wing,” from Netflix and paid

NBCU’s Peacock Lands Dick Wolf Library Of ‘Law & Order’ And ‘Chicago’ Franchises In Non-Exclusive Deal

NBCU’s Peacock Lands Dick Wolf Library Of ‘Law & Order’ And ‘Chicago’ Franchises In Non-Exclusive Deal
Dick Wolf has been an integral part of the NBCUniversal brand for three decades — both on the network and studios side, with his formidable Law & Order and Chicago franchises airing on NBC and being produced by Universal Television, now part of NBCUniversal Content Studios. Because of that legacy, when NBCUniversal announced plans for a streaming platform, having Dick Wolf’s dramas on it was considered essential.

It came down to the wire, but that platform, Peacock, has closed a mega deal for the majority of Wolf’s deep catalogue, including Law and Order, Law and Order: Svu, Law and Order: Criminal Intent, Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D., and Chicago Med, which all will be part of the acquired content on the streamer at launch. The announcement will be made at Comcast’s investor presentation today unveiling the service.

Chicago Fire Season 8 Episode 11 Review: Where We End Up

  • TVfanatic
All's well that ends well.

It took a life-and-death situation, but Firehouse 51 and 20 finally got past their differences on Chicago Fire Season 8 Episode 11 and realized they're all on the same team.

While we should be applauding a happy ending, I'm disappointed that the rivalry was wrapped up so quickly.

As I previously mentioned, rivaling firehouses would have been a new twist on the "Big Bad" story arc.

Usually, some authority figure comes in for a few episodes and complicates things up for 51 for a while before our favorite heroes find a way to triumph over said "Big Bad."

It's a simple wash, rinse, repeat routine, and I was looking forward to something new.

However, now that the two firehouse have made peace, this storyline seems to be done for the time being.

Despite feeling a little -- or a lot -- rushed, there were some tense moments where it seemed

Who is Captain Delaney on Chicago Fire cast? Soap actor brings drama

Captain Delaney returns to the Chicago Fire cast on Wednesday night, as the new episode will focus on two firehouses working together. Maybe the word together isn’t the right one to describe the coming disfunction. The introduction of Captain Greg Delaney took place during the winter premiere when it was revealed that the boundaries for Firehouse 51 and Firehouse 20 were redrawn to overlap. As expected, chaos ensued and continues to brew. On the January 15 episode, which is called Where We End Up, a pest problem at Firehouse 51 is going to force the team to share living quarters with Firehouse 20. That’s a […]

Monica Raymund Says “The Door Is Always Open” To Return To ‘Chicago Fire’ – TCA
Monica Raymund can currently be seen in the Starz crime drama Hightown, but before she was navigating the rocky road to sobriety as Jackie Quinones, she was starring as the fearless paramedic Gabby Dawson, a fan favorite on Chicago Fire. After 6 seasons, she exited the show, but recently returned to NBC’s Chicago-verse for the season 8 midseason finale of Fire this past November. This posed the question: will she return again?

“You never know,” she tells Deadline during TCA. “The door is always open for Dawson to come back.”

She added that she loved being on the show for six seasons and enjoyed what they did with her character. She also admitted that she didn’t expect for the show to have such a rabid fanbase. More than that, she didn’t think there would be so much fandom surrounding Dawson.

How ‘Jeopardy! The Greatest of All Time’ Became Broadcast’s Ratings Champ
If Ken Jennings wins tonight’s game of “Jeopardy! The Greatest of All Time,” the tournament will be over. ABC likely hopes that doesn’t happen.

Through three rounds of intense quizzing between Jennings, Brad Rutter and recent favorite James Holzhauer, “Jeopardy! The Greatest of All Time” has not only provided a platform for an outpouring of affection toward host Alex Trebek, who was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer in March 2019, but also a massive ratings boost for ABC.

The first installment kicked things off with 14.4 million total viewers and a 2.4 rating in the key 18-49 demographic, before episode 2 grew 3.5% to 14.9 million viewers, and episode 3 saw a similar jump to 15.5 million viewers. Those numbers represent the second, third and fourth biggest totals for any broadcast so far this season, behind only the Golden Globes which drew 18.3 million viewers earlier this month.
