Nic Pizzolatto and Oscar-winner Matthew McConaughey are reuniting for a new series.
The writer and actor pair forged a winning team in the first series of True Detective, and now they’re back together, working on a series called Redeemer for the FX channel in the US.
Deadline reports that the series is: “Created by Pizzolatto and inspired by Patrick Coleman’s debut novel The Churchgoer, Redeemer stars McConaughey as a minister-turned-dissolute security guard whose search for a missing woman in Texas leads him through a corruption-steeped criminal conspiracy, as his past and present impact and entwine around a mystery of escalating violence and deceit.”
It has been picked up for a pilot order.
It’s not clear what this means for True Detective, although the same article did say that HBO – the show’s home network – was ‘open’ to changes in the creative team going forward.
