Apple has more money they know what to do with, and as a result, they’ve greenlit a project that sounds as though it was born directly out of a Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson smoke sesh.

According to reports, the pair of real-life pals — who have previously starred together in EDtv and True Detective — are set to feature as themselves in an upcoming AppleTV+ series. The untitled 10-episode half-hour comedy series will follow the pair as their two families attempt to live together on McConaughey’s Texas ranch.

In their official description of the series, Apple says the show is “a heartfelt odd couple love story revolving around the strange and beautiful bond between Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.”

As mentioned above, McConaughey and Harrelson most recently starred together in True Detective, which is largely credited with ushering in a new era of prestige TV when it premiered on HBO back in 2014.

This month, both Harrelson and McConaughey have new projects releasing, albeit on different ends of the entertainment spectrum.

Harrelson is starring alongside Kaitlin Olson and Cheech Marin in the Bobby Farrelly-directed sports dramedy Champions. He’s also currently in production on the AppleTV+ sci-fi film Project Artemis, which also stars Scarlett Johansson and Channing Tatum.

As for McConaughey, he’s voicing Elvis in the new Netflix animated series Agent Elvis alongside a voice cast that includes Kaitlin Olson, Simon Pegg, Kieran Culkin, Fred Armisen, Johnny Knoxville, Christina Hendricks, Jason Mantzoukas, Gary Cole, and more.

At this time, it is unclear when production on the project will start.
