Peacock is set to drop a new dark comedy series this year featuring a talented cast of characters and a brilliant behind-the-scenes crew. Titled The Resort, the series is created by Sam Esmail, who previously worked on shows like Mr. Robot and the movie Comet. He is co-creating the series with Andy Siara. Here is the description of the plot of the show, according to Deadline: “The Resort explores love and the weird things we do in the name of it, encased in an elaborate true-crime conspiracy, with each season set in a unique picturesque vacation destination. The first season takes place at an all-inclusive resort along the Mayan Riviera, when a married couple on the brink of divorce inadvertently becomes embroiled in one of the Yucatan’s most bizarre, unsolved mysteries that, somehow, is part metaphysical detective story, part Indiana Jones-esque adventure, part coming-of-age romance.” The Resort has assembled a powerhouse cast of performers, many of whom have appeared in notable projects in the past.
