It’s been quite some time post the series ended and we have all been waiting to see Moore jump back in front of our TV screens. Taking this forward, Moore has been cast in the upcoming season of the popular Peacock anthology series “Dr Death”.
The streamer revealed that it will be resuming the critically acclaimed anthology series Dr. Death next year. The show is based on the Wondery podcast and this will be its second season. Here is everything you need to know about the announcement.
Mandy Moore Is The Newest Addition To Dr Death On Peacock
Mandy Moore has had a few notable stints in popular TV shows like This Is Us which just aired its last season. In an exclusive news, she has onboarded the new Peacock series Dr. Death season 2 which is based on a podcast with the same name. Moore will be seen opposite co-stars Edgar Ramirez.
According to socials, Moore is set to act and produce the series “Twin Flames” which is inspired by the hit Wondery podcast, which is in the process of being developed right now at Hulu.
Mandy Moore will play the role of investigative journalist Benita Alexander who will eventually fall in love with Ramirez’s character on the show Paolo Macchiarini before knowing the ultimate truth about him.
Moore became a successful name right from when she was younger, then took the next step into her acting career after a supporting role in “The Princess Diaries.” After that, she starred in “A Walk To Remember,” which took her career to a defined place.
Moore not only voiced Rapunzel in Tangled, but she has also been voicing the character in subsequent projects. These include a spinoff animated series for the show.
The actress just finished a run on NBC’s This is Us, where she earned an Emmy and Golden Globe nomination for her portrayal of family head Rebecca Pearson.
What Will The Upcoming Season Be About?
Based on the popular true-crime podcast Wondery, the show tells the story of Dr. Duntsch who was a disgraced neurosurgeon who hurt & killed 36 people throughout his career.
As he was brought to justice, two surgeons joined forces with the Assistant District Attorney in order to put an end to Dr. Duntsch’s reign of terror.
Season 2 will focus both on the prowess of Macchiarini, ingrained as the “miracle man” for his innovations, and his fall from glory.
When investigative journalist Benita Alexander requests a story on Macchiarini her life becomes increasingly confusing due to the blurred lines between her personal and professional life.
The more time that Macchiarini spends hiding his secrets, the more obvious it is that she’s starting to reveal how little he cares about anything besides himself.
