11 Comedies to Binge-Watch on Peacock If The Office Is Your Favorite Show
Many of them come from the same minds that brought you the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company.
Millions of people around the world have literally watched billions of minutes of The Office, making it one of the most popular TV shows ever. And once you watch just one episode, it's easy to see why.
It's incredibly easy to become attached to the people of the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company, from the eccentric and obnoxious Dwight Schrute to Jim and Pam's friends-to-lovers office romance and, of course, the World's Best Boss: Michael Scott.
So, for those moments when you're craving even more of The Office, we've found some comedies you can stream on Peacock that will fill the void. And a handful of them come from the very minds that brought us our faves from Scranton, PA.
Parks and Recreation
Why You'll Like It: From the same creators of The Office came Parks and Recreation, another charmingly off-beat mokumentary-style show. The series followed Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler)—an enthusiastic official in Pawnee, Indiana's Parks Department—and her ragtag team of fellow government workers who willingly (and unwillingly) do whatever it takes to ensure their hometown is the best it can be. You'll probably recognize Leslie's best friend Ann, played by Rashida Jones. (Jones also played Karen Filippelli in The Office.)
Why You'll Like It: This workplace comedy takes us to St. Louis, where we meet the employees of Cloud 9, a fictional big-box chain store. Not only do we keep up with the hilarious hijinks of the workers day-to-day, we also see them navigate the challenges that come with retail and a slew of high-maintenance customers. Series creator Justin Spitzer was a writer on The Office for seven years.
Why You'll Like It: Co-created by The Office's Michael Schur, this series follows the immature (but talented) NYPD detective Jake Peralta, the stern (but beloved) Captain Holt, and other fellow cops at Brooklyn's 99th precinct. The team is incredibly dysfunctional as they do their best to solve cases, but through it all, they also prove to be a family.
Why You'll Like It: Starring Tina Fey, the Emmy-winning 30 Rock was loosely inspired by Fey's years as a writer on Saturday Night Live. Set at the iconic 30 Rockefeller Plaza, Fey plays Liz Lemon, the high-strung head writer of a fictional NBC sketch show. Viewers get a behind-the-scenes look into the antics of the series production, including unstable celeb Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan) and meddlesome network exec Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin).
Why You'll Like It: Office fans will recognize Ed Helms (a.k.a. Andy Bernard, a.k.a. the "Nard Dog") as Nathan Rutherford in Peacock original Rutherford Falls. The comedy chronicles the culture clash that ensues between best friends Nathan and Reagan when Reagan contests the removal of an old statue of his ancestor from their small town. The problem? Said ancestor has a fraught history with Regan's people, the fictional Minishonka Nation.
Why You'll Like It: NBC has already ordered a second season of American Auto, a comedy that follows the executives and employees of a major car company in Detroit. Viewers watch the offbeat team, lead by their confident but inexperienced new CEO Katherine Hastings (Ana Gasteyer) stumble and fight to keep up with a rapidly changing industry.
Why You'll Like It: Known as one of the most popular comedies in the history of television, this beloved series follows former Boston Red Sox relief pitcher, Sam Malone (Ted Danson), and his Boston bar dubbed Cheers. Throughout the show's 11 seasons, fans fell for the unique and quirky cast of characters, both behind and in front of the bar, as they navigated love, heartbreak, and everything in between.
Why You'll Like It: As a spin-off of Cheers, the acclaimed Frasier followed the newly-single and always snobby psychiatrist, Frasier Crane, when he returned to his hometown of Seattle to live with his ailing father and serve as a radio Host. As he sets out on his new chapter in life, we meet his brother, Niles (also a psychiatrist), their dad's live-in aid, Daphne, and even more adored characters.
Why You'll Like It: In this Peacock original, a one-hit-wonder '90s girl band named Girls5Eva reunites after more than 20 years when one of their songs is sampled by a popular rapper. With them all unfulfilled in their current lives, they jump on the second chance to live their dreams.
Why You'll Like It: Starring The Office's Craig Robinson, Killing It follows a security guard who, in his efforts to achieve the American Dream, decides to risk it all and enter into the South Florida Python Challenge. Peacock has already renewed the comedy for a second season.
Why You'll Like It: Co-created by Tina Fey, this series tells the story of wealthy retired ad exec Neil Bremer (Ted Danson). In order to impress both himself and his daughter, he decides to run for mayor of L.A.—and surprisingly wins. But he soon learns that the job is not as simple as he expected.
