FX Orders Matthew McConaughey Drama ‘Redeemer’

The creator and showrunner of HBO anthology series True Detective, Nic Pizzolatto, will create, write, and executive produce a new FX series called “Redeemer,” which will star “True Detective” actor (and Oscar winner) Matthew McConaughey. The series is inspired by the Patrick Coleman novel “The Churchgoer,” and the show will follow a former minister-turned-dissolute security guard whose search for a missing woman in Texas leads him through a corruption and criminal conspiracy, with his past and present colliding.

“We are thrilled to begin our creative partnership with Nic Pizzolatto and Matthew McConaughey on ‘Redeemer,’ who are back together for the first time since the first season of HBO’s ‘True Detective,’” said Eric Schrier, president of FX Entertainment. “We’re also incredibly excited about our overall deal with Nic and look forward to developing new projects with him and our partners Fox 21 Television Studios, and we’re equally excited to be developing projects with Matthew through his first look deal with FXP.”

Pizzolatto and McConaughey will serve as executive producers for the series, which is produced by Fox 21 TV Studios and FX Productions.
