Want a bit more stop-motion goodness in your life? Then check out the trailer for Peacock’s In the Know, the streamer’s first adult animated comedy.
In the Know introduces us to NPR’s third most popular radio host, Lauren Caspian (voiced by Zach Woods, who co-created the series with Silicon Valley‘s Brandon Gardner and King of the Hill’s Mike Judge). This quirky character conducts in-depth interviews with high-profile guests like Roxane Gay, Mike Tyson, and Hugh Laurie — and he also happens to be a puppet. In fact, his whole staff are puppets, while all the guests are real-life humans.

Brought to life by stop motion from ShadowMachine, the studio behind Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio, In the Know explores the making of Lauren’s eponymous radio show, as well as how his well-meaning persona can often mask hypocrisy. On top of all that, the new comedy series also boasts an impressive lineup of guests, including Kaia Gerber, Jonathan Van Ness, Ken Burns, Finn Wolfhard, Norah Jones, Tegan and Sara, Nicole Byer, and Jorge Masvidal.
