Peacock

There are more sporting events and news programs on Peacock than anything else, but it’s far from devoid of great TV series. Peacock gets every new show from NBC without exception. However, the series from other countries — and even a few Peacock originals — sometimes seem to just disappear if you don’t know what you’re looking for.

This is why we’re throwing the spotlight on three underrated shows on Peacock that you need to watch in May. Two of our three picks are Peacock originals, while the other is an obscure British TV series that probably would have been forgotten if The Office (the original UK version) and Sherlock star Martin Freeman didn’t have a leading role in it. Now, all three are simply waiting for a wider audience to discover them.

Departure (2019-present)

The Good Wife‘s Archie Panjabi headlines her own suspense drama, Departure, which was a Peacock original for two seasons before getting a third season on the Canadian network Global. Only the first two seasons are on Peacock, but they’re largely self-contained stories ,with only Panjabi’s Kendra Malley and a few other characters rpresent for each season.

Amlley is a lead investigator for the Transport Safety and Investigations Bureau, and her case in the first season revolves around the crash of a large passenger jet that may have been caused by the pilot. While diving into this case, Malley also has to deal with the lingering trauma of losing her own husband, which her son, AJ (Alexandre Bourgeois), believes is more than just a mere accident.

Boy Meets Girl (2009)

A better title for Boy Meets Girl might be Boy Becomes Girl, or vice versa. This miniseries revolves around a Freaky Friday situation as fashion reporter Veronica Burton (Rachael Stirling) and a down-on-his-luck guy, Danny Reed (Martin Freeman), swap bodies and lives after a freak lightning strike.

When Danny wakes up in Veronica’s body, he’s got to deal with her partner, Jay Metcalfe (Paterson Joseph) when he’d much rather be with the woman he loves, Fiona (Angela Griffin). It’s even worse for Veronica in Danny’s body, as her memories have been scrambled and she’s not entirely sure who she is anymore. Somehow, these two have to find each other and switch back before their choice gets taken away from them.

We Are Lady Parts

Peacock

We Are Lady Parts is a co-production between the UK’s Channel 4 and Peacock that has one of the most original premises in comedy today. The fictional British punk rock band Lady Parts is comprised entirely of Muslim women. Prior to joining the band, Amina (Anjana Vasan) was hesitant about the idea of pursuing a new direction in her life. But Amina feels that Lady Parts’ Saira (Sarah Kameela Impey), Bisma (Faith Omole), and Ayesha (Juliette Motamed) have something special together, and she wants in on it.

Each of the four women follow Islamic tradition to varying degrees. For the most part, they’re just trying to make names for themselves in an unexpected field. This series has already been renewed, and We Are Lady Parts season 2 is expected to arrive this year.
