Matthew McConaughey And Woody Harrelson Teaming For New Texas-Set Apple Series

Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey have paired up numerous times, most notably in HBO’s True Detective and the film EdTV. They are actually real-life pals, who obviously enjoy working together. And so it’s unsurprising to learn that they’re reuniting, this time on a new Apple TV+ series set in Texas.

According to Deadline, the duo are set to star in an untitled half-hour comedy series from David West Read (Apple’s The Big Door Prize) and spanning 10 episodes. The series is described as an “odd-couple love story that revolves around the “strange and beautiful bond” between the pair. The series will see their friendship “tested when their combined families attempt to live together on Matthew’s ranch in Texas.”

Sounds a bit off the beaten path, which is pretty much how you could categorize every project McConaughey and Harrelson do together.

Coming up for McConaughey on the small screen is a Yellowstone spinoff of sorts, plus the animated satire Agent Elvis. Harrelson can be seen right now in the new film Champions, and he recently starred in Best Picture nominee Triangle of Sadness.
