Peacock To Launch Exclusive Special News Series "The Overview" Featuring NBC News' Gadi Schwartz

New Peacock Original, an NBC News Stay Tuned Production, Drops First Three Episodes January 16

NEW YORK, Jan. 11, 2021 -- Peacock continues to expand its offering of timely, topical news content with The Overview, a new special series hosted by NBC News and MSNBC correspondent and co-host of NBC News' Stay Tuned, Gadi Schwartz. Premiering on Peacock January 16, The Overview takes a step back from the daily news cycle to provide a new take on today's most relevant and pressing issues.

"The world has become an overwhelming place filled with shifting paradigms, and sometimes it's difficult to tell if we are moving toward a better future or stuck in reverse. Our hope is to give an overview of what's working and what isn't," said Gadi Schwartz. "Peacock provides the space to deliver a new perspective and shine a light on the nuance of today's biggest issues."

The first three episodes of The Overview, streaming on January 16, will focus on climate change, the future of elections, and the significance of nostalgia in society as our country is grappling with an unpredictable present.

"Peacock is focused on delivering news programming that offers viewers responsible journalism and original reporting from all different perspectives," said Jen Brown, Senior Vice President of Topical Programming and Development for Peacock. "With The Overview, we hope to drive peer-to-peer conversations through Gadi's thoughtful reporting on issues important to this generation of streaming news consumers."

In addition to co-hosting one of the most popular news show on Snapchat, Stay Tuned, Gadi Schwartz serves as a correspondent for NBC News and MSNBC. He's covered a range of stories, including the 2020 election, immigration issues along the US-Mexico border, the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio and the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, as well as hurricanes and natural disasters across the country. Schwartz has received multiple industry awards for his reporting, including five regional Emmy Awards and two Los Angeles Golden Mike Awards.
