QUOTE FROM ANDY SIARA - SHOWRUNNER, WRITER, AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCER:
"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. 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."
