Peacock has ordered two new half-hour comedies, one of which is from Brooklyn Nine-Nine co-creator Dan Goor and executive producer Luke Del Tredici starring Craig Robinson (The Office). Neither of these shows have a release date yet.

Additional casting or production plans for the Robinson project have yet to be announced.
In addition to the Robinson-Goor project, another new notable NBC order is Bust Down, a new six-episode comedy from executive producer Lorne Michaels starring Saturday Night Live performer Chris Redd, as well as staffers Langston Kerman and Sam Jay. As the title somewhat suggests, the show takes place in a casino and is about four employees “in a dead-end job in middle America attempt[ing] to find self-worth in their bad ideas.” Six episodes have been ordered.
