'The Resort': William Jackson Harper-Led Romantic, Comedic Thriller Drops Trailer Ahead Of Peacock Series Premiere

Peacock‘s upcoming series The Resort has released its first official trailer.

The comedic thriller from writer Andy Siara will drop on Peacock Thursday, July 28 with three episodes followed by new episodes streaming weekly.

The series stars William Jackson Harper (Love Life, The Underground Railroad), Cristin Milioti (Made for Love, Palm Springs), Nick Offerman (Parks & Recreation, Pam & Tommy), Skyler Gisondo (The Righteous Gemstones, Licorice Pizza), Luis Gerardo Méndez (Narcos: Mexico, Murder Mystery), Nina Bloomgarden (Hot Pink, Jane) and Gabriela Cartol (La Camarista, Hernán).

Here's an official description:

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. 

Siara says 'The Resort' is "about a lot of things."

“When I was much younger and had more energy, I wanted to make a big summer movie with mystery, detectives, adventure, comedy, tragedy, romance, a natural disaster, plus a dose of the surreal and existential — and ideally it would have been for Universal,” he said in a statement received by S&A. “That didn’t happen. But now, many years later, we have The Resort… and it’s kind of a big summer movie with all of those things… just split into 8 half-hour episodes on Peacock, which is kind of like the sibling of Universal, so it all came together in the end.  Moving on — The Resort is about a lot of things. There are big swings, and little swings. It’s someone looking back on their life and trying to remember the good times, mixed with a 5-year-old playing with toys in the backyard. It never takes itself too seriously, but sometimes it gets pretty serious. I guess, at its core, it’s about people who want to go back to a time in life when things seemed a bit easier, before the hard parts of life keep piling up. It’s about people who are trying to recapture that feeling of home. And within that, there’s a big mystery.”
