If you’ve quickly developed a Safdie brothers obsession since watching Uncut Gems the moment it dropped on Netflix, then we have good news for you. The brothers behind the critically-acclaimed Adam Sandler-starring smash are now creating a pilot half-hour comedy show, Deadline reports.

The Safdies have signed on as executive producers to create The Curse, a story about how a curse (duh) disturbs the relationship of two newlyweds starring in a troubled HGTV show called Flipanthropy.

Alongside Benny and Josh, the show has also signed Nathan for You creator and star Nathan Fielder in a lead role, Deadline goes on to report. And even more exciting news: Benny Safdie, along with producing and co-writing the show, is also set to appear as Flipanthropy’s producer.

So far, not much else is known about the show, other than it's being created by the American network Showtime. We’re crossing our fingers for a 10 season run already.
