WWE Superstars Charlotte Flair and Alexa Bliss are set to appear in NBC’s upcoming “Punky Brewster” revival.
Based on set photos released by Bleacher Report, Alexa and Charlotte appear to be involved in some sort of pro-wrestling based storyline in the sitcom.
The “Punky Brewster” revival is a continuation of the hit sitcom that premiered on NBC back in 1984. The show aired its final episode in 1988. The revival premieres on NBC’s streaming service Peacock on February 25.
Pro-wrestling legend Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson also has an NBC show premiering soon. “Young Rock” is biographical show inspired by The Rock’s early years. It will tell the story of a kid who grows up in the wrestling business … obviously.
Production began on the NBC series in Queensland, Australia in 2020. The Rock is set to appear in each episode, and is also serving as a producer alongside Johnson, Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia, Jennifer Carreras, and former WWE writer Brian Gewirtz.
As we previously reported, NBCUniversal recently purchased the exclusive streaming rights to more than 17,000 hours of new and original WWE Network content.
WWE Network will move to NBCUniversal’s Peacock streaming platform in March, according to Variety.
WWE content (including upcoming live events such as WrestleMania and SummerSlam) will be available on Peacock for $4.99 a month with ads. For those who don’t want ads, the Peacock Premium Plus plan costs $9.99 a month — the same price as an existing WWE Network subscription.
So basically, if you’re already subscribed to WWE Network, you’ll gain additional access to the ad-free Peacock Premium Plus in March for no extra cost. Alternatively, you could cut your current WWE Network subscription in half and sign up for Peacock Premium.
