Safdie Brothers' 'The Curse' Comedy Pilot is Headed to Showtime!

Showtime has ordered a comedy pilot, titled The Curse, from the Safdie brothers!

The network has given a pilot green light to the project from Uncut Gems directors/co-writers Benny and Josh Safdie and Nathan for You creator and star Nathan Fielder, Deadline reports.

The half-hour comedy stars, is written by, and is executive produced by Benny and Nathan. Josh is an executive producer.

The show “explores how an alleged curse disturbs the relationship of a newly married couple who star in Flipanthropy, their troubled HGTV show.”

Nathan will play the husband, and Benny will portray the producer of the HGTV show.

While the project had been pitched with the Safdie brothers directing, they will reportedly not direct the pilot.

The Safdie brothers won Best Director for Uncut Gems at the 2020 Film Independent Spirit Awards. Watch them hilariously recite their speeches at the same time!
