Christopher Nolan recently moderated a panel for The Curse, the Showtime series that stars Nathan Fielder and Emma Stone.
Benny Safdie, who starred in Nolan’s Oppenheimer, is a co-creator of the series alongside Fielder. In the panel that the cable network shared on YouTube, Nolan praised the show, saying, “It’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen on television before.”
“I think the show is incredible,” Nolan said.
Nolan said that this type of show could only be made now during the “anarchy of the streaming era” and that “tone is the star” of the series — comparing it to the first season of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks.
“Congratulations on an incredible show that’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen on television before. There are so few shows that come along that genuinely have no precedence,” Nolan said as the panel ended. “You’re going back to things like Twin Peaks, or The Prisoner, or Dennis Potter’s Singing Detective and things like that, so you’re in an amazing space, and I can’t wait to catch up with the climax.”
Watch the full panel in the video shared below.
The Curse is a satirical black comedy thriller that premiered on Showtime on Nov. 12, 2023. Stone and Fielder star as a married couple filming a show for HGTV while they believe they’ve been cursed. Safdie also stars as the producer of show within the show.
Recurring cast members include Constance Shulman, Hikmah Warsame, Dahabo Ahmed, Christopher Calderón, Barkhad Abdi, Gary Farmer and Nizhonniya Luxi Austin.
