What it's about

Craig Foster, a Miami bank security guard, enters a state-sponsored snake-hunting contest to achieve his American dream of becoming a successful entrepreneur.

The take

From the creators of the beloved sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine comes Killing It, an offbeat but endearing show starring Craig Robinson. Down on his luck and out of viable financial options, the show’s lead (also named Craig) turns to python hunting in Florida to earn some extra income. It's an absurd premise that gives way to fun and hijinks, but for all its silliness, Killing It touches on important topics such as class and race. It walks a tightrope between comedy and criticism and gracefully succeeds, all while having something of value to say.
