The genre-bending series is set in Española, New Mexico. Newlyweds Whitney and Asher Siegel are determined to build excitement for eco-friendly housing in their hometown. However, things are not straightforward and the show tackles complex issues such as homelessness, gentrification and native land rights in that part of the state. 

Despite claiming they are there for the community, the Siegels are not entirely altruistic either, although they put on plenty of show for the camera. They are often encouraged to go further by their less-than-scrupulous producer Dougie Schecter too.

Ultimately, it is of combination of these factors that leads to things going wrong. After a particularly unpleasant incident, all captured on film, it appears that they have been hit by a curse, something that bothers Whtiney far more than it does Asher. More lies follow, and the Siegel's business and relationship is put under enormous strain. Can they make it through, or will the curse finally catch up with the couple?

The Curse brings together family, fame, greed and a host of other issues in a really interesting way to create a highly absorbing show. It is shot in a deeply cinematic style that is really compelling and is set to be the kind of series where we laugh, cry and are a bit terrified all in one episode.
