American Rock Stars: American Rock Stars  Season 1, Ep 0

No, not those rock stars. Curling rock stars. Specifically, the US Men's team, led by John Shuster. This 4-part documentary on Peacock, narrated by Nick Offerman, covers their shocking gold medal in 2018, the aftermath, and the journey back to the Olympics in 2022. It's a fun show, and they all seem like genuinely down to earth people that you'd enjoy hanging out with.

Winter Olympics?
