Peacock is putting its A-game forward, as it has been backing some good content. In recent times it has dropped originals like ‘Bel Air’ and ‘Wolf Like Me’. The ‘Parks and Recreation’ star is all ready to join the star cast of ‘The Resort’.
What is the upcoming show ‘The Resort’ all about?
‘The Resort’ is a multi-generational, coming-of-age love story disguised as a fast-paced mystery about the disappointment of time. When a couple takes an anniversary trip it puts their marriage to the test.

The screenplay of the show has been written by Andy Siara. In the past, Siara has written for movies like ‘Palm Springs’ and ‘Lodge 49’.
