Here’s what Bill McGoldrick, President of Original Content, Peacock, said in a statement:

“We are excited to stream The At-Home Variety Show on Peacock. Peacock’s launch coincides with a moment in our history when connection, community and content are more important than ever. We want to deliver fun and timely content in a way that only Peacock can, by bringing together entertainment, news and sports to support these great charities.”
