Now... it's NBC Universal's turn with a new deal seeing Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail rebooting Battlestar Galactica (for the second time). It will be an exclusive show to Peacock, NBC Universal's new streaming service.

NBC didn't spill any details on the Battlestar Galactica reboot, but anyone who has seem Esmail's work on Mr. Robot knows that this is definitely an interesting move. I didn't expect anything like this, and I'm kind of intrigued as to what Esmail can do differently in a space setting versus the world of Mr. Robot.

Peacock will have a vast library of shows available for both ad-supported and subscription-based services, with Parks and Recreation, Everybody Loves Raymond, Cheers, Downton Abbey, and recently secured The Office for Peacock in a deal worth $500 million.
