Oneohtrix Point Never and John Medeski Are Scoring Nathan Fielder and Benny Safdie's 'The Curse'

BY Calum SlingerlandPublished Jan 18, 2023

Just over two years ago, we learned that at least one of Josh and Benny Safdie had teamed with Nathan Fielder for a forthcoming Showtime series called The Curse, and some further collaborators on the production have now been revealed.

On Instagram yesterday (January 17), Daniel Lopatin — the artist and producer known best as Oneohtrix Point Never — shared a shot of himself in-studio with Fielder, Benny Safdie, producer/engineer Randall Dunn and jazz keyboardist John Medeski of fusion trio Medeski Martin and Wood.

Lopatin writes in the caption, "Let's face it tv stinks! not anymore folks meet a few of the hot hunks bringing you "THE CURSE" @showtime sometime sooner than later."

Lopatin's work on The Curse would continue his fruitful creative partnership with the Safdies, which has led to the artist soundtracking films like Good Time and Uncut Gems.

As for The Curse, few new details have emerged since its 2020 billing as a "genre-bending" sitcom that sees Fielder and Emma Stone play a newly married couple trying to conceive a child while also working on an HGTV series.

"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," Showtime's Amy Israel said of the show in a 2020 statement. "Together, they promise to deliver a groundbreaking satire that is both unexpected and deeply human. Showtime continues to shine as a beacon for visionary filmmakers who are looking to create their ambitious, singular shows."

Dunn also shared some shots of Medeski, Fielder and Benny Safdie in-studio that you can see below.

Fielder is coming off the inaugural season of The Rehearsal, a mind-bending comedy that was renewed for a second season ahead of being named one of Exclaim!'s Best TV Shows of 2022.

Last year, the Safdie Brothers were tied to an Andy Kaufman documentary and more work with Adam Sandler.
