Streamer Peacock has announced the comedy series Take Note, which follows a group of contestants from across the country competing in a fictional reality singing competition, Take Note. The logline:14-year-old Calvin Richards has a wonderful, close-knit family who can survive anything as long as they’re together. And good thing because Calvin was chosen to compete on a tween reality singing show – Take Note - and they’re going to spend the summer navigating the crazy ups and downs of new friendships and competitions, while being thrust into the national spotlight.

The series will star Braelyn Rankins (Doom Patrol, Genius: Aretha) as Calvin Richards, Nadine Roden (Designated Survivor, Murdoch Mysteries) as Calvin’s mom Bria Richards, Aadin Church (Broadway’s Dreamgirls, Sister Act) as Calvin’s dad Reggie Richards, and Sebastian Spencer (Overlord and the Underwoods) as Calvin’s brother Jordan Richards. Ten half-hour episodes of "Take Note" have been ordered.

Take Note is produced by Lambur Productions. Creator Joan Lambur serves as Executive Producer. Co-showrunners Earl Davis (Wu-Tang: An American Saga, Teenage Bounty Hunters, Sherri) and Michael Feldman (Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn, Sonny with a Chance, That’s So Raven) will also executive produce. 

Earlier this week, Peacock put into development a family drama called Fruits of Thy Labor from Billy Porter (Pose) and Dan McCabe that explores a Black family’s multi-generational imprint in Hollywood. The proposed series from Berlanti Productions will follow three generations of an African-American showbiz dynasty navigating their way through life, love, politics, and career.
