So, what’s “The Curse” about? Per Deadline’s December 2020 report, the brand new Showtime challenge is a “genre-bending comedy explores” that reveals “how an alleged curse disturbs the connection of a newly married couple as they attempt to conceive a baby whereas co-starring on their problematic new HGTV present.” In a very darkish and comedic twist, the title of the couple’s house makeover present is known as “Flipanthropy.” Now, there is not any phrase on what precisely this curse entails or the way it enters the lives of this couple. In true Sam Raimi style, do they run afoul of an outdated crone? Do they maybe unearth an historical relic? Do they consider they’re victims of unfortunate circumstances? Is the curse literal or merely figurative?
This tv present had the potential to be paying homage to Lifetime’s darkish twist of all issues Bachelor Nation-related, “UnREAL,” and we’re very intrigued. Deadline’s February 2020 report speculates the fictional couple (performed by Nathan Fielder and, presumably, Emma Stone) bears at the least a passing resemblance to Tarek El Moussa and Christina Haack, the HGTV couple whose marriage dissolved whereas nonetheless filming their collection “Flip or Flop.” Additionally, the couple on the coronary heart of Showtime’s “The Curse” definitely sounds extra like fellow HGTV alums Chip and Joanna Gaines, the reigning energy couple of televised house renovations.
