'True Detective' Stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson Reunite for Apple Comedy Created by David West Read

Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson - who previously starred together in the first season of HBO's True Detective - will reunite for an untitled comedy, which has received a series order at AppleTV+ today.

Inspired by McConaughey and Harrelson's real-life friendship, the series is an odd couple love story that resolves around the strange and beautiful bond between the pair. Their friendship is tested when their combined families attempt to live together on Matthew's ranch in Texas.

David West Read - who created AppleTV+'s The Big Door Prize starring Chris O'Dowd, which launches on the streamer later this month - will serve as showrunner on the untitled series. He will executive produce with McConaughey, Harrelson, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Matt Thunell, Bill Bost and Jeremy Plager. Skydance Television will produce.
