Craig Robinson's latest television comedy, Killing It, will stream all 10 episodes of its season April 14 on Peacock.

The streamer describes Killing It as a comedy "about class, capitalism and one man's quest to achieve the American dream. And also about hunting really big snakes."

The man in question is Robinson's character, who works as a security when the show begins but has dreams of buying swampland, only to be denied a loan.

"I don't have much right now," he says in a trailer for the series, which you can watch below. His proof to back up this statement is that his car has been sent on fire, he's living in a 24-hour gym, and his ex's new boyfriend is going to move them (along with his daughter) to Columbus.

But after a fortuitous Uber ride, he learns about a competition that pays money to those who kill pythons because they are considered an ecological disaster. Whoever brings in the most, the trailer previews, will get $20,000. Suddenly he has a new calling and a new partner in his Uber driver (played by Claudia O'Doherty). But acquiring the skills (and forgoing the fear) associated with hunting snakes won't be immediate.

Killing It comes from co-showrunners Dan Goor and Luke Del Tredici, who Robinson previously worked with when he guest-starred on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The producing duo said in a statement that their new show explores "America's quasi-religious obsession with entrepreneurship and wealth."

Other executive producers include Robinson, Mark Schulman, and Mo Marable, who also directs the first three episodes. Rell Battle, Scott MacArthur, Stephanie Nogueras, Wyatt Walter, and Jet Miller also star. The half-hour comedy is produced by Universal Television.
