The show will also have producer Randall Dunn working on the soundtrack who posted on Instagram an image of Medeski, Fielder and Benny Safdie sat together.

SHOWTIME describes the upcoming series as “a genre-bending scripted comedy that explores how an alleged curse disturbs the relationship of a newly married couple as they try to conceive a child while co-starring on their problematic new HGTV show.”

Lopatin also posted on Instagram an image of the group in the studio with the caption: “let’s face it tv stinks! not anymore folks meet a few of the hot hunks bringing you ‘THE CURSE’ sometime sooner than later”.
