What makes this premiere even more special is that the festival will showcase not just a single episode but the first three episodes, with the remaining seven to follow. Remarkably, this marks the first time that the New York Film Festival is theatrically previewing an episodic series.
“The Curse” is a genre-bending series that promises to offer a fresh and engaging perspective on the complexities of modern relationships. The story revolves around a newly-married couple portrayed by two exceptional talents in the industry, Emma Stone and Nathan Fielder. Their characters are striving to embrace the joys and challenges of married life while simultaneously starring in their own home-improvement show. However, their journey takes an unexpected turn as they must grapple with an alleged curse that threatens to disturb their relationship.
Viewers can mark their calendars for this exciting new series, as “The Curse” is set to premiere on Paramount+ on November 10, followed by its airing on Showtime on November 12. The collaboration between Showtime and A24, renowned for its creative and boundary-pushing content, has already sparked considerable anticipation. Benny Safdie and Nathan Field are not only starring in the series but are also the co-creators and executive producers, promising a unique blend of talent both in front of and behind the camera. The show’s executive producing team also includes Emma Stone, Dave McCary, Ali Herting, and Josh Safdie.
In addition to “The Curse,” several other exciting updates were unveiled in the world of television:

The premiere week promises an array of star-studded guests, including Gwen Stefani, Niall Horan, and Shaquille O’Neal, ensuring an electrifying start to the new season. Jennifer Hudson, renowned for her powerhouse vocals and charismatic presence, will also engage with individuals who have made a significant impact through their philanthropic efforts. The show aims to highlight inspiring stories and make a positive difference.
Throughout the week, Jennifer Hudson will engage in conversations with her esteemed guests, providing viewers with a diverse range of topics to explore. Gwen Stefani and Niall Horan will join Jennifer on October 3 to discuss the highly-anticipated Season 24 of “The Voice.” On October 4, Taye Diggs will share insights into his new podcast, “You Had Me At Hello.” The following day, Cedric the Entertainer will make an appearance to discuss his debut novel, “Flipping Boxcars,” and the launch of his barbeque label, AC Barbeque, in collaboration with fellow comedian Anthony Anderson.

The show is produced by JHUD Productions and Warner Bros., with Jennifer Hudson herself taking on an executive producer role. The team of executive producers includes Mary Connelly, Andy Lassner, Corey Palent, Graehme Morphy, Walter Williams III, and LaNeé Griffin.
“The Talk” Returns for Season 14 Fans of “The Talk” can also mark their calendars as the beloved talk show is set to kick off its 14th season on October 9 at 2 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT. This announcement comes after a schedule adjustment due to Drew Barrymore’s decision to pause her show. Drew faced backlash from the Writers Guild of America (WGA) after initially deciding to bring back her show during the strikes. Unlike some other shows, “The Talk” is not in national syndication but rather is a network show on CBS.
“The Talk” boasts a diverse lineup of co-hosts, including Jerry O’Connell, Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Natalie Morales, and Sheryl Underwood. The show originally halted production in May in response to the strike, and when it planned to return on September 18, it faced picketing during a rehearsal show.
Despite the challenges, “The Talk” continues to be a prominent presence in the daytime talk show landscape and has gained a dedicated following over the years. The show’s return promises exciting discussions, engaging debates, and an array of topics to captivate its viewers.
In the world of television, these developments promise to offer captivating content and exciting entertainment options for audiences across the globe. As fans eagerly anticipate the premiere of “The Curse” and the return of beloved shows like “The Jennifer Hudson Show” and “The Talk,” it’s clear that the world of television continues to evolve and delight viewers with its diverse offerings.
