The Curse is going to be produced by Showtime, while Fielder, Benny Safdie and Josh Safdie will executive produce the pilot. As Deadline states, The Curse stars Fielder and co-stars Benny Safdie who will play the role of a husband and the role of a producer who is making an HGTV show, respectively.
This new comedy series is centered around a marriage, with the couple starring in their own troubled HGTV series called Flipanthropy. As noted by Deadline, this show-within-a-show could be inspired by Tarek El Moussa and Christina Anstead’s Flip or Flop, which subsequently saw their marriage fall apart as they grew into fame — although, The Curse has not cited any real-life inspirations as of yet.
Showtime declined to comment on who will be directing the series, and has not yet given a release date for the inaugural pilot episode.
