But things begin to unravel for Nathan when a campaign is launched by the city's mayor and its citizens for a statue of his ancestor Lawrence Rutherford to be removed.

Amid a reassessment of Larry's treatment of the local Native American community, Nathan battles awkwardly to preserve his family's history and the "Big Larry" sculpture while also trying to save face. 

With what is said to be one of the latest indigenous-staffed writers’ rooms on US television behind it, the show looks set to confront the heavy subject of American colonisation while somehow maintaining a light enough tone to work as a primetime comedy. 

Read on as we explain how to watch Rutherford Falls and stream the new comedy show online with Peacock today.

That means Rutherford Falls episodes air in Canada from Thursday, April 29 on linear TV via the Showcase (opens in new tab) channel, starting off with back-to-back episodes at 8pm ET/PT, with the channel widely available through Canadian cable providers.
