Mandy Moore and Jennifer Morrison Are Reuniting on a Show That's This Is Us' Opposite
It's going to be so good.
Mandy Moore and Jennifer Morrison are reuniting for a show that's the polar opposite of This Is Us, where they played Rebecca and Cassidy, respectively.
The women will be teaming up for Season 2 of Peacock's anthology series Dr. Death, based on the hit Wondery podcast. Moore is starring in front of the camera as Benita Alexander, an investigative journalist who falls in love with an accomplished surgeon, Paolo Macchiarini (Edgar Ramirez). But as their relationship progresses, Benita discovers things about Paolo that are beyond comprehension. Here's an official description of the new season, per a Peacock press release:
"This season will feature the 'Miracle Man' storyline based on the most recent third season of the [Dr. Death] podcast. Paolo Macchiarini is a charming surgeon, renowned for his innovative operations that earn him the nickname 'Miracle Man.' When investigative journalist Benita Alexander approaches him for a story, the line between personal and professional begins to blur, changing her life forever. As she learns how far Paolo will go to protect his secrets, a group of doctors halfway across the world make shocking discoveries of their own that call everything about the 'Miracle Man' into question."
