Steve Conrad will be the scriptwriter and director of the first episode, and James Lasdun, the author of the New Yorker article on which the first season is based (“My Dentist’s Murder Trial: Adultery, False Identities and a Lethal Sedation”), will also be fulfilling the same role.

Materialists is Pedro’s next major film, in which he will star alongside Chris Evans and Dakota Johnson, two of the most influential stars of their generation. It’s a romantic comedy set in New York and directed by Celine Song.

The story follows a high-end matchmaker who becomes involved with a wealthy man but still harbors feelings for the broke actor/waiter she left behind. The filmmaker is also the scriptwriter, so we can expect many unexpected twists and a truly emotive narrative.
