Matthew McConaughey & Woody Harrelson to Star in Apple TV+ Comedy

Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson are teaming up once again, this time for a comedy series at Apple TV+, according to THR.

The report notes that the pair will star in and executive produce the comedy series, which will come from Schitt’s Creek writer David West Read. The pair, who famously starred together in the first season of the hit HBO series True Detective, will explore their “strange and beautiful bond” once again, this time in an entirely new genre.

While nothing is known about the series as of now, the report mentions that it will be 10 episodes long and is described as “a heartfelt odd couple love story revolving around the strange and beautiful bond between Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. Matthew and Woody’s friendship is tested when their combined families attempt to live together on Matthew’s ranch in Texas.”

For McConaughey, this role follows his appearance in the upcoming Netflix animated series Agent Elvis, in which he plays secret agent Elvis Presley. Prior to that, McConaughey starred in 2021’s Sing 2.

Harrelson most recently starred in the 2023 sports comedy film Champions and will also star in the HBO series White House Plumbers, which premieres later this month. He’s also set to star in two upcoming films: Suncoast and Project Artemis.
