Uncut Gems director Benny Safdie co-created the series, and will also star. His brother Josh Safdie will executive produce.

Here’s a plot summary: “The genre-bending comedy explores how an alleged curse disturbs the relationship of a newly married couple as they try to conceive a child while co-starring on their problematic new HGTV show.”

It also Emma‘s first starring TV role since Netflix’s Maniac back in 2018.

“The fierce intelligence and wit of the incomparable Emma Stone make her the perfect partner with the ingenious minds of the Safdie brothers and the subversive comedy of Nathan Fielder,” said Showtime’s Amy Israel.

“Together, they promise to deliver a groundbreaking satire that is both unexpected and deeply human.”

At the same time, Emma Stone is reportedly exiting this high-profile production.
