True Detective creator Nic Pizzolato has signed a production deal with Fox 21 Productions and FX Productions. The latter has also done a first-look deal with Matthew McConaughey, who starred in the anthology series’ first run. And tying all of that in a neat bow, the pair will be working together on a new FX series.
Redeemer, based on Patrick Coleman’s novel The Churchgoer, will star McConaughey as a Texan minister turned security guard, and one far less saintly than his former career might suggest. As with True Detective, the story begins with a missing woman and sees past and present collide and corruption’s tendrils everywhere.

As a company, we monitor our sales on daily basis and as such we potentially have to change schedules at a moment’s notice. When working with Global listings this is made easy. Their can-do attitude means we are not hindered by bureaucracy or rigid SLAs – we make the change and they do all the hard work... great service!
