Britcoms join new US streaming service

Shows to appear on NBC's Peacock

British comedies Lady Parts, Intelligence, Code 404, and Hitmen are to be aired in the US on a new streaming service from the NBC network.

The shows will all be on Peacock, which is set to be launched on July 15, in both free and $4.99-a-month premium versions.

Lady Parts is  a six-part comedy commissioned by  Channel 4 from Hounslow Diaries creator Nida Manzoor.

The other shows were all made for Sky. 

Intelligence is a workplace comedy set in the GCHQ eavesdropping centre  starring David Schwimmer and Nick Mohammed, who wrote it.

Code 404 stars Daniel Mays and Stephen Graham as two detectives in the Special Investigation Unit at the London Met. But when Mays’ character John Major is shot dead he is brought back to life in an artificial intelligence project, losing his valued crime-fighting instincts in the process.

 And Hitmen reunites Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc as two hapless assassins.
