Matthew McConaughey & Woody Harrelson Reunite For Texas-Set Apple Comedy Series

Mar 15, 2023

Hollywood pals Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson (“Triangle of Sadness“) led the acclaimed HBO serial killer series “True Detective,” and before the grim thriller, the pair had previously worked together on feature film comedies such as “Surfer, Dude” and Ron Howard‘s “EdTV.” The duo is now looking to reunite for a new untitled comedy series at Apple TV+.

A report from Deadline reveals that their untitled series at Apple is hailing from comedy writer David West Read (“Schitt’s Creek,” “The Big Door Prize“). The 10-episode half-hour comedy is described as an odd-couple love story that revolves around the “strange and beautiful bond” between the two. However, the series will see their friendship “tested when their combined families attempt to live together on Matthew’s ranch in Texas.” Although, it’s not totally clear from the synopsis/description if we’re looking at a mockumentary-type comedy series with the two actors playing heightened versions of themselves or if they’re simply going to play similar characters inspired by their real-life friendship.
Skydance Television is behind the comedy streaming project. The studio also partnered with Apple on the sci-fi series “Foundation” and the upcoming Chris O’Dowd-led series “The Big Door Prize,” with the latter featuring West Read as the showrunner.
This won’t be the only television venture for McConaughey, as he is being set to lead a franchise extension of Taylor Sheridan‘s wildly successful and acclaimed series “Yellowstone” and is the main voice actor on Netflix’s new animated show “Agent Elvis.” Harrelson’s most recent television work includes the HBO miniseries “White House Plumbers” and the stoner animated series “The Freak Brothers” based on the counterculture comic books from Gilbert Shelton that were first published in the early 1970s.
