Comcast Corp's NBCUniversal will name its upcoming streaming service "Peacock", offering a broad slate of original content, including "Dr Death" starring Emmy and Golden Globe victor Alec Baldwin, the company said on Tuesday.

New Original exclusive content is where Disney+ is going to thrive, since its commissioned 61 original series and movies, while Apple has ordered "just" 36 new originals for Apple TV+ service.

The Office, Friends, and Parks and Recreation were the three most-watched shows on Netflix past year. Peacock will be an ad-supported and subscription supported service with prices being announced at a later date.

Editor's Note: NBC's Peacock is unlikely to launch in Australia, so please feel free to join us in laughing about this dumb name instead.

The new Ed Helms-fronted comedy Rutherford Falls. One of Us Is Lying, an adaptation of the 2017 novel, will also stream on Peacock.

30 Rock writer and Great News series creator Tracey Wigfield heads the reboot, which will feature original cast members. In addition, Peacock will tap into NBCUniversal's ability to deliver a broad range of compelling topical content across news, sports, late-night and reality. With Children, Monk, Parenthood, Parks and Recreation, Psych, Royal Pains, Saturday Night Live, Superstore, The Real Housewives, Top Chef, and Will & Grace. Brave New World (which features Demi Moore) and Alec Baldwin's Dr. Death will also premiere on the service.

Peacock, NBCUniversal's streaming platform that will be launched in April next year, will have a low-investment cost financial model and will be quick to market. And Soleil Moon Frye will star as a grown-up Punky Brewster.

As with Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Roku, Flex lets viewers watch streaming services over a regular TV, though they have to subscribe to Netflix and others on their own.
