An Unsolved Mystery + Coming-of-Age Series in ‘The Resort’ Trailer
“No work, no stress, no regrets. Why don’t we just see where this takes us…” NBC’s Peacock has revealed an official trailer for a mysterious, intriguing new series titled The Resort. It was created by the writer of the script for Palm Springs (one of my favorite time loop films), and is executive produced / co-written by “Mr. Robot’s” Sam Esmail. A multi-generational, coming-of-age love story disguised as a fast-paced mystery about the disappointment of time. An anniversary trip puts a marriage to the test when the couple finds themselves embroiled in one of the Yucatan’s most bizarre unsolved mysteries that took place fifteen years prior. Starring Cristin Milioti and William Jackson Harper. “Exploring love and the weird things we do in the name of it, encased in an elaborate true-crime conspiracy.” The series main cast also includes Luis Gerardo Méndez, Nina Bloomgarden, Nick Offerman, Gabriela Cartol, Dylan Baker, and Skyler Gisondo. This looks sneaky good! A peculiar mystery wrapped up with a resort vacation romantic comedy.
