The Adventure Zone is part of the Maximum Fun website (which has over 40 podcasts). The Adventure Zone is going to have an animated show that is based on the podcast. Wondery’s Dr. Death podcast will become a show based on the podcast. Both will appear on NBC’s Peacock Streaming platform.
The Adventure Zone is described this way: Justin, Travis, and Griffin McElroy from My Brother, My Brother and Me, have recruited their dad Clint for a campaign of high adventure. Join the McElroys as they find their fortune and slay an unconscionable number of… you know, kobolds or whatever in… The Adventure Zone.
The AV Club reported that The Adventure Zone marks a return to NBC-backed streaming services for the McElroys (who previously adapted their podcast My Brother, My Brother and Me for the short-lived Sesso). The AV Club also reported that it is not yet known exactly when The Adventure Zone will premier on Peacock.
Dr. Death is described as: We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We must trust the hospital. We trust the system. The podcast is about Dr. Christopher Duntsch, who was a neurosurgeon in Dallas that became a mass murderer. CNBC reported that Dr. Death will become a show on Peacock.
CNBC reported that Peacock is NBCUniversal’s streaming service. There will be a free, advertising-supported version of Peacock, a limited-advertising version for about $5 per month, and an advertising-free version for about $10 per month (according to sources). According to CNBC, Peacock will include more than 15,000 hours of content.
