Where to Watch In the Know, Peacock's New Adult Animated Series
A comedy news show like you've never seen before from The Office's Zach Woods and King of the Hill Creator Mike Judge. Here's how to catch In The Know.
Zach Woods has entertained audiences with his deadpan comedy and dry humor since the mid-aughts in his role as Gabe Lewis in The Office and later Jared Dunn in Mike Judge’s Silicon Valley. Now, the brilliant comedian is teaming up again with Judge (Beavis and Butt-Head, King of the Hill) as well as Brandon Gardner in the adult animated comedy In the Know.
Promising to be one of the most chuckle-inducing series of the year, we can’t think of a more entertaining way to kick off 2024. The satire sends up a rather serious and influential corner of the news industry: National Public Radio (NPR).
“We love public radio. It’s engaging and comforting. But it also reflects aspects of ourselves we’re embarrassed by,” wrote the show creators, who jokingly admitted in an official statement: “We’re sanctimonious doofuses who should be ridiculed more.”
Read on for all the details on where to catch In the Know.
Where to watch In the Know
In the Know is streaming exclusively on Peacock. Subscribers can watch all six episodes, which run for 30 minutes each, right here when it premieres. We can’t think of a funnier way to spend three hours.
When does In the Know premiere?
All six episodes of In the Know will be available to binge-watch on Peacock on Thursday, January 25, 2024, so sit back and enjoy. In an official statement, the creators describe their wish for audiences: “We want this show to start funny, scary, friendly conversations.” They also expressed their desire to open a dialogue with “possibly irredeemable but hopefully still loveable” characters — so you may want to leave extra time afterwards to dish (or vent).
What is In the Know about?
The comedy series centers on Lauren Caspian (Woods), NPR’s “third most popular host… a well-meaning, hypocritical nimrod, just like you and me.”
He also happens to be a stop-motion puppet who interviews real-world human guests, asking them piercing questions in episodes that follow the making of his news show. The newsroom staff — all puppets and “nimrods”— include a culture critic (Judge), a fact-checker (Caitlin Reilly), and an executive producer (J. Smith-Cameron).
Among other surprises, the series will explore (and poke fun at) privilege, Woods shared. People who have ethically sourced dog treats delivered by underpaid workers? Check. Talking heads stuck in an intellectual echo chamber? Check. A comedy that brings honest conversation and humor? Check!
The stop-motion animation comes from ShadowMachine, the studio behind Robot Chicken and BoJack Horseman. Given the powerhouse team behind In The Know, we’ll surely have all the dry wit and dark humor we’ve come to love and expect.
Catch In the Know on Peacock on January 25.
