Today, it was announced that Peacock and WWE have produced a new documentary following Cody Rhodes.
The series is scheduled to premiere on July 31st on Peacock. It is directed by Matt Braine and executive produced by Vincent K. McMahon, Kevin Dunn, Chris Kaiser, Chris Chambers, Ben Houser, and Cody Rhodes. The documentary will be narrated by longtime friend Stephen Amell who starred in Arrow and had a match with Cody at SummerSlam prior to Rhodes leaving the WWE.
Here’s a synopsis of the documentary. Cody Rhodes grew up living in the shadow of his father, WWE Hall of Famer “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes. In 2016, Cody risked it all by leaving WWE to make a name for himself, becoming the “American Nightmare.” This intimate and revealing documentary follows Cody’s journey away from the WWE, and his return at WrestleMania 38 last year, as he chases the dream of winning the WWE championship, the one title his father was never able to claim. Through never-before-seen footage and unprecedented access, this Peacock Original illustrates the transformation of a man who is blazing a new trail in sports entertainment.
In addition to American Nightmare: Becoming Cody Rhodes, Peacock Premium subscribers can stream thousands of hours of on-demand programming from WWE such as original series, fan-favorite shows from the WWE archives, and upcoming Premium Live Events, including WWE SummerSlam, streaming on Peacock August 5.
