Peacock’s upcoming television adaption of the beloved baseball film Field of Dreams will no longer be happening at the streaming service.
The upcoming television adaptation of Field of Dreams will no longer be happening at Peacock. Released in 1989, the Kevin Costner-centered film has remained one of the most beloved sports films in movie history. Based on the 1982 W.P. Kinsella novel Shoeless Joe, the iconic film was directed by Phil Alden Robinson and sees farmer Ray Kinsella (Costner) build a baseball field in the center of a cornfield to attract the haunting ghosts of former baseball legends. It was previously announced that Peacock had straight-to-series ordered The Good Place creator Michael Schur’s Field of Dreams show adaption, with no word on the future of the series, until now.
It has now been announced that the upcoming Field of Dreams television adaptation will no longer be at Peacock, via Variety. The upcoming adaption is currently being shopped around to other outlets by Universal Television.
Schur was already onboard on the upcoming television adaption of Field of Dreams as the series writer and executive producer along with Lawrence Gordon of The Golden Company. The Golden Company also produced the 1989 film, which went on to be nominated for three Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Original Score. As the Field of Dreams television adaption is now looking for a new home, another iconic baseball film turned tv show is soon to make its debut on Amazon with the streamer’s adaption of A League of Their Own premier set for August 12.
