'Intelligence': Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need to know about the David Schwimmer comedy coming to Peacock

David Schwimmer is returning in a role that, from the looks of the trailer, seems tailor-made for him. Schwimmer's Sky One workplace comedy series 'Intelligence' is about a maverick American intelligence agent (Schwimmer) and a hapless British computer analyst (Nick Mohammed). Are we ready to watch Schwimmer in the role of yet another dork? Definitely! Here is everything you need to know about the show ahead of its release. 


Release date

'Intelligence' will premiere on July 15, 2020, on NBC Universal's new streaming service Peacock. 


According to the official synopsis of the show: "'Intelligence' is a workplace comedy set in the UK's Government Communications Headquarters - a kind of weedier, geekier, more bureaucratic version of MI5 and MI6, where they tackle international and domestic Cyber Crime from a desktop. When a pompous maverick NSA agent Jerry Bernstein (David Schwimmer) comes over from the U.S. to join the team, he enlists an inept and tactless computer analyst Joseph (Nick Mohammed) in a power grab that threatens to disrupt the team's ability to combat cyber terrorism."
