Mandy Moore Shared a Pic With Jennifer Morrison Reuniting on Their New Show
The This Is Us co-stars have been hanging out while filming Peacock's anthology series Dr. Death.
This Is Us may have wrapped up a while ago, but the friendship between co-stars Mandy Moore and Jennifer Morrison is as strong as ever.
Part of the reason Moore and Morrison have been bumping elbows lately is through working on Peacock's anthology series Dr. Death. Moore stars as Benita Alexander, an investigative journalist who falls for a surgeon. But as Benita and her new lover grow closer, she begins to unveil the many hidden secrets that spell trouble for her relationship. The series is the nail-biting opposite of This Is Us' feel-good fuzziness and a fun change of pace for Moore.
On the flip side of Dr. Death's camera is Morrison, who is the director of the first four episodes of the highly-anticipated season. As filming wraps on Morrison's episodes of Dr. Death, Moore is taking to Instagram to post a tribute to her former This Is Us co-star and friend.
"This is a @jennifermorrison appreciation post. Today was my last day of work for the first four episodes [of Dr. Death] and therefore, my last day on set with Jen," Moore wrote. "I never had the chance to really work with her on #thisisus, we'd only pass each other in hair and makeup and I admired her from afar but getting the chance to create something together and work with her in this capacity was magical. I stand in such admiration for how deftly she commands a set and how deeply she cares about the work on every level. Count me in for ANY job with you, @jennifermorrison!!"
Just in time for Galentine's Day, right? The post isn't the first time the This Is Us ladies shared their excitement about working together online. After it was announced that Moore would star in the series and Morrison will direct, Moore posted to Instagram, "Secret’s out! I wasn’t expecting to head back to work so soon, but I couldn’t say no to Dr. Death and the chance to work with @edgarramirez25 and my friend @jennifermorrison to tell this story."
Morrison also relished in the opportunity to work with her NBC bestie again, posting to her Instagram, "Reunited and it feels so good! So thrilled to be working the incomparable @mandymooremm on the #doctordeath anthology series."
Dr. Death is bound to be an entertaining watch. We can't wait!
