Set against the stunning backdrop of the tropical Whitsunday Islands and the famous Great Barrier Reef in northeastern Australia, the Peacock Original series UNDER THE BRIDGE UNDER explores the complex and often explosive dynamics of crew and a rotating group of discerning charter guests on M/Y Thalassa.

Stews Tumi Mhlongo and Magda Ziomek are also on board with the sailorsCulver Bradbury, Brittini Burton, and Benny Crawley. Setting the tone for the entire crew, the charming young new captain has a hands-on approach to leadership and will do whatever it takes to ensure guests have an unforgettable vacation, including fascinating underwater excursions like scuba diving, snorkeling and some close encounters with marine life. Although the onboard dynamics are initially smooth, a host of issues arise when the chef immediately goes out of sync with the stew chef. The deck team also runs into rough waters when the bosun’s hard-line management style is challenged by a free-spirited team member who has an aversion to rules. Meanwhile, inside, Chief Stew Aesha learns the hard way that not everyone on her team will be motivated by her work-first-friend mentality. Between charters, yachtsmen let off steam taking full advantage of Australia’s world-famous nightlife, where drama, surprising flirtations and wild adventures warm up their well-deserved nights.
