Cristin Milioti and William Jackson Harper on The Resort's mystery: 'You'll never see what's coming'

They may be playing an imperiled couple on The Resort, but there's nothing but love between William Jackson Harper and Cristin Milioti. "Cristin and I get along really, really well, and we make a lot of weird jokes. We have our own little shorthand. I think that it's hard to dismiss how you feel about a person entirely when you're acting with them," Harper tells EW of his co-star. "It's my hope that even with the tension of their marriage being very high, that there's maybe just little sparks of the things that they may have liked about each other at the beginning, just because I just adore Cristin to death."

William Jackson Harper Talks True Crime and “The Resort”

“What do you do when you aren’t happy, but nothing’s really wrong?” William Jackson Harper muses over Zoom. He’s answering a question about the appeal of his new project, Peacock’s The Resort, which he is co-leading with Cristin Milioti (Black Mirror, Made for Love). The ambitious new series is written and produced by showrunner Andy Siara, the screenwriter behind the trippy time loop rom-com Palm Springs that was an early pandemic hit, and Allison Miller (Angelyne). With The Resort, Siara has once again found a way to draw out the creepiness of a seemingly beautiful location. Harper’s Noah and Milioti’s Emma are a married couple celebrating their tenth anniversary with a vacation to Akumal, Mexico where Emma finds a phone in the woods and — out of a growing sense of listlessness and a desire to not address the staleness of her relationship — decides to investigate its previous owner, a college student who went missing 15 years earlier. This small but important decision takes the pair down a rabbit hole that ironically begins to repair their marriage while endangering their lives. In lieu of traditional couple’s counseling, the eight-episode miniseries takes the twosome on an adventure that is part conspiracy thriller and part dark comedy.
