Seamlessly integrating exclusive footage at just the right moment, users can now take control of how they watch the scenes that breakthrough the zeitgeist, and we are thrilled to offer this powerful storytelling tool to Hollywood’s content creators, visionaries, and originators.”
The prototype combines the latest design vision with video samples from season two of the hit franchise. As viewers watch, Peacock will surface a wide variety of exclusive extra footage, timed to the most relevant moments, all with the user in control. As Peacock’s first production partner, THE REAL HOUSEWIVES ULTIMATE GIRLS TRIP season three will launch with three episodes encompassing the final interactive feature. Users can lean back and watch an episode as-is or choose to engage with prompts as they appear at key moments during their viewing experience.
From iconic fights to legendary vacations, the unfiltered and unapologetic franchise, THE REAL HOUSEWIVES will be reimagined just in time for fans to take a much-needed vacation to Thailand for season three of THE REAL HOUSEWIVES ULTIMATE GIRLS TRIP on Peacock. The new feature will first appear seamlessly in the main story stream through contextual opt-in dialogs.
