HBO recently released the trailer for True Detective, which stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson playing Louisiana state police detectives tracking a serial killer.
Screen Rant recently reported on the upcoming HBO series starring the two good friends:
Real-life buddies Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson are joining the HBO team for a new cop drama called True Detective. HBO has given the green light for an eight-episode order after the fledgling series was shopped around to different networks earlier this month.
Written by Nic Pizzolatto (The Killing), the first season of True Detective will center on a pair of detectives, Martin Hart (Harrelson) and Rust Cohle (McConaughey), who end up crossing paths on a 17- year hunt for a serial killer deep within Louisiana. The series will feature a split narrative jumping between when the case first opens back in 1995, and the present when the two detectives are testifying in court after the case is reopened. Following an anthology vein similar to FX’s cult-thriller American Horror Story, subsequent seasons of the series may feature a new cast and different storylines.
If you too can hardly wait for the show — the pilot of which was so well-written that HBO let creator Nic Pizzolatto write the whole series himself — then perhaps this new trailer for the series will help you out for a while.
HBO’s True Detectives premieres in January 2014.
