Lopatin and Safdie have a prolific creative relationship, with Lopatin working on the score for Safdie’s Good Time and Uncut Gems, two critically-acclaimed films from the Safdie Brothers. Fielder has also enlisted John Medeski to work on the soundtrack, as well as Randall Dunn. Lopatin’s work on Good Time won him the Cannes Soundtrack Award, beating out Jonny Greenwood back in 2017. Since, he has collaborated heavily with The Weeknd on After Hours and Dawn FM, two albums which propelled both Lopatin and Tesfaye to international stardom, despite being an unlikely paring.

The new show sees Fielder starring alongside Emma Stone, with SHOWTIME describing the upcoming project 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.”. Fielder will direct all episodes – with Safdie starring in the show.

In our review of Lopatin’s soundtrack for Good Time, Aine Devaney wrote:

“The opening title track progresses from brooding tectonic bass to celestial synths, with Tangerine Dream-esque arpeggios driving the suspense. Bail Bond’s fizzy drones build under jarring dramatic dialogue and sleazy riffs shred over a painfully brief amen break. Romance Apocalypse has a hook that would make the iconic Miami Vice composer Jan Hammer proud, propelling you into a trashy 80s crime world.”

She continued: “The striking sincerity and sombre sense of receding in [Iggy} Pop’s delivery moved me to tears. I can only imagine the harrowing emotion this record underscores.”
