True-crime love story The Resort, from Palm Springs writer Andy Siara and Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail, has been ordered at Peacock.
Writer Andy Siara and creator of Mr. Robot Same Esmail have teamed up for a new true-crime romance titled The Resort. The series will be coming to the streaming service Peacock for an eight-episode order of the series. Siara will be writing and executive producing the series alongside Allison Miller, Esmail, and Chad Hamilton. Sarah Matte will be on board as co-executive producer.
Here’s the synopsis:
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.
Lisa Katz, President, Scripted Content, NBC Universal Television and Streaming, said of the series:
“Andy and Esmail Corp have a distinct point of view exploring off-kilter, genre-bending storytelling that is infused with humanity and compelling characters. The Resort has everything viewers are looking for in their next escape drama – thrill, mystery, love and a tropical backdrop.”
Mr. Robot and Palm Springs were both very successful so I would say this new series is in good hands. Does this sound like something you’d want to check out?
