After the incredible success of the MLB at Field of Dreams game, we could be seeing a lot more of the Dyersville, Iowa baseball field in the very near future.
Reports emerged on Monday that NBC has commissioned a Field of Dreams TV show to be aired on their PeacockTV streaming app. The show is reportedly the brainchild of Michael Schur, the director of such beloved shows as Parks and Recreation and The Good Place.
According to Variety, the show will take place on the iconic field in Iowa. The series will “reimagine the mixture of family, baseball, Iowa and magic that makes the movie so enduring and beloved.”
“Through the years, ‘Field of Dreams’ has remained a fan favorite, maintaining its rightful position in the zeitgeist,” NBCUniversal Television and Streaming president Lisa Katz said, per Variety. “It’s whimsical and grounded, a space where Mike Schur excels, and we’re looking forward to bringing a new version of this classic to Peacock.”
Fans on Twitter are pretty excited to see what NBC has in store. Many are already chiming in with their own suggestions for making it better:
Can’t wait to see the scene in @KenTremendous‘ FIELD OF DREAMS where they explain WAR to Shoeless Joe.

I might give the Field of Dreams series a chance if they set it at Schrute Farms. Don’t know whether I’d want Schur to be Costner and Rainn Wilson to be Amy Madigan, or vice versa

Mike Schur is gonna make you all love Field of Dreams against your will and I will be sitting here watching it all unfold and smiling. https://t.co/Vve2uFV0UG

The MLB at Field of Dreams game was one of the highest-rated regular season baseball games in years.
Located at the site of the iconic 1989 movie of the same name, the Chicago White Sox topped the New York Yankees with the backdrop of authentic corn fields (with semi-edible corn).
