Third ‘Field of Dreams’ Field Coming to Iowa For Peacock Series
News has come out about a new Peacock series that's going to be filming in Iowa, a new telling of the Field of Dreams story.
The NBC streaming service will be filming the series right here in Iowa, and it'll be directed by Mike Schur. Schur is known for his writing and directing credits on shows like The Office, Parks and Recreation, The Good Place, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
He also appeared on The Office as Mose, Dwight Schrute's oddball cousin.
Production is set to begin this summer, using local suppliers and vendors when it comes to catering, construction, transportation and set decoration. According to Hollywood Reporter, Renovo Media Group from Clear Lake will support the production with technical equipment.
Musco Lighting from Muscatine and Iowa Sports Turf from Des Moines will assist with the lighting, design, and construction of the ball field.
Musco Lighting assisted with the Major League Baseball stadium.
Filming is set to take place in multiple locations around Iowa, but not the original film site or the new adjacent Major League Baseball stadium.
Much of eastern Iowa will be involved in the filming of the series, with Polk, Mahaska, Clinton, and Boone counties already locked in for filming locations. Some scenes will also be filmed in Boston, Minneapolis, and Los Angeles.
Field of Dreams will be based on the 1989 film and was greenlit in August.
“The creative team behind this limited series cares deeply about the legacy of Field of Dreams, and we felt we simply couldn’t make it without shooting in Iowa,” executive producers Schur and Sackett said in a joint statement. “You can’t think of the movie without thinking of the state – and vice versa. We’re thrilled to have the cooperation of Produce Iowa and many local businesses, who will help us bring the series to life.”
