Lionsgate Play and PLDT Home subscribers are in for a treat later this month as they will be able to stream the satirical black comedy thriller series, “The Curse.” The first eight episodes of the series will be available for streaming from Dec. 29.

In “The Curse,” Nathan Fielder and Emma Stone star as Asher and Whitney, a newlywed couple with ambitious plans to bring their eco-conscious housing vision to Española, New Mexico. However, their plans are complicated by a supposed curse and Dougie (Benny Safdie), a flawed reality TV producer who sees potential in their story. As the series progresses, the couple becomes entangled in a complex web of ethical dilemmas while also navigating the challenges of maintaining their relationship and trying to start a family.

The show has received high praise from critics, with Entertainment Weekly dubbing it “the weirdest, most unforgettable show of 2023,” and The Guardian describing it as “exquisitely cringe-worthy.” With an immersive storyline and sterling performances, this unique blend of comedy and thriller promises an unforgettable viewing experience for Lionsgate Play subscribers.

In another interview with IndieWire, Nathan Fielder delves into the intriguing concept of uncertainty surrounding the reality of the curse, highlighting the complexity of the show’s exploration of what’s real or fake in a given situation.
