Pizzolatto has exited HBO for a new deal with Fox 21 TV Studios and FX Productions. As part of the deal, Pizzolatto will reteam with McConaughey on Redeemer, a mystery drama series inspired by Patrick Colman's novel The Churchgoer that has been given a script-to-series order. Redeemer stars McConaughey as "a former minister-turned-dissolute security guard, whose search for a missing woman in Texas leads him through a corruption and criminal conspiracy, as his past and present impact and entwine around a mystery of escalating violence and deceit," per The Hollywood Reporter. McConaughey, who will also serve as executive producer on Redeemer, has also signed a first-look TV deal with FX. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Pizzolatto met with with HBO executives and they all agreed to part ways. "Still, Pizzolatto's departure does not mean the end of True Detective," reports The Hollywood Reporter's Lesley Goldberg. "HBO owns the rights to True Detective and, sources say, could renew the anthology for a fourth season with a new showrunner who could bring a different point of view to the Emmy-winning franchise. Sources say HBO execs felt Pizzolatto was able to redeem the critically maligned sophomore run with the third season, which earned star Mahershala Ali an Emmy nomination."
