After their success on “True Detective,” Matthew McConaughey and Nic Pizzolatto will be collaborating yet again for a set of new television series at FX, entitled “Redeemer”.
This duo who previously collaborated in making the critically-acclaimed first season of “True Detective” would be at it again in the fresh TV drama series, in which Pizzolatto will write whilst McConaughey will star. They will also executive-produce the project.
Inspired by Patrick Coleman’s debut novel “The Churchgoer”, “Redeemer” will follow an ex-minister turned demoralized security guard (McConaughey), whose search for a missing woman in Texas finds him through corruption and criminal conspiracy, as both of his past and present haunts him to a series of escalating violence and deceit.
It’s wagered that just like “True Detective”, the show will be a success.
The debut season of “True Detective” scored 12 Emmy nominations with five wins, both collaborators were nominated for best actor in a drama series, while Pizzolatto was nominated for best writing for a drama series.
