As the streaming wars rage on, NBCUniversal’s Peacock is adding another TV series to its roster. Its next series, The Resort, is a true-crime love story from Andy Siara, the writer of Palm Springs, and Sam Esmail, the creator of Mr. Robot. According to a new report from Deadline, William Jackson Harper and Cristin Milioti will lead The Resort alongside Skyler Gisondo.
Peacock’s The Resort will reportedly be a multi-generational, coming-of-age love story. However, the series will be disguised as a fast-paced mystery surrounding the disappointment of time. How will The Resort accomplish all of this? The series will do so by showcasing an anniversary trip gone wrong. During this trip, a married couple, played by William Jackson Harper and Cristin Milioti, will engage with an unsolved mystery from fifteen years prior.
Cristin Milioti will play Emma for the series, a high school teacher who feels stuck in a monotonous marriage. William Jackson Harper will play the role of Noah, who is also a teacher but more content with the monotony of his everyday life and marriage. Together, the couple will be pulled into the mystery of the resort while celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary.
Other cast members for The Resort include Skyler Gisondo as Sam, a man vacationing with his parents and girlfriend at the resort in 2007. Ben Sinclair will play a recurring role in the series as a resort owner, and Paversh Cheena will play another recurring role as one of the many guests vacationing at the resort.
Previously, William Jackson Harper starred in HBO Max’s romantic comedy anthology series Love Life. He received a Critics Choice Award nomination for his work on the series. However, he also served as one of the leads on NBC’s The Good Place and has appeared in movies like Midsommar, Paterson, and Dark Waters.
Cristin Milioti currently stars in HBO Max’s Made For Love. However, she recently worked with the writer of The Resort on the movie Palm Springs. Her other credits include appearances in Black Mirror, How I Met Your Mother, The Wolf of Wall Street, and even a small part in The Sopranos.
