Peacock has ordered eight episodes of The Resort, described as a multi-generational exploration of love, marriage and family vacations.

The series is produced by Universal Content Productions (UCP), a division of Universal Studio Group, part of NBCUniversal.

“By combining an unsolved crime investigation with an exploration of marriage in a tropical location, they have designed a show for the Peacock audience that is fresh, fun and relatable,” said Beatrice Springborn, president of UCP.

Andy Siara (Palm Springs) will write and executive produce the series alongside Allison Miller. Sam Esmail, via his overall deal with UCP, and Chad Hamilton of Esmail Corp, via Anonymous Content, serve as executive producers. Sarah Matte of Esmail Corp is co-executive producer.

“Andy and Esmail Corp have a distinct point of view exploring off-kilter, genre-bending storytelling that is infused with humanity and compelling characters,” said Lisa Katz, president of scripted content at NBC Universal Television and Streaming.

“The Resort has everything viewers are looking for in their next escape drama – thrill, mystery, love and a tropical backdrop.”
