A&E Signs Deal to Stream Unscripted Series on Peacock

NBCUniversal’s upcoming Peacock streaming service will add A&E content to its library at launch. Hollywood Reporter first shared the news that Peacock has a deal for unscripted series from the network, including Cold Case Files, First 48, Storage Wars and History’s American Pickers, Ancient Aliens, Curse of Oak Island, Pawn Stars and scripted drama Project Blue Book.

“We are excited to make some of A+E Networks’ most popular shows available on Peacock later this year,” said Frances Manfredi, president of content acquisition and strategy at Peacock and NBCUniversal Digital Enterprises. “In addition to the strong portfolio of NBCUniversal programming available on Peacock, we continue to aggregate content from other networks and studios, like A&E and History, that maximizes the breadth and depth of choice for our customers.”

The A&E content will join the library already consisting of exclusive rights to The Office and Parks & Rec, along with more NBC content.

“We are excited to partner with Peacock,” said Steve MacDonald, president of global content licensing and international at A+E Networks. “We of course strongly believe in the power of the A+E Networks’ library of content, and that it will prove to strengthen Peacock’s offerings.”

Peacock is set to launch on April 15.
