The first official trailer is out for HBO's newest drama, True Detective, starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. The story, according to the IMDB page, the story centers around "Two detectives, Rust Cohle and Martin Hart, lives become entangled during a 17-year hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana."
The trailer shows the gritty lives of two detectives as they search for a serial killer, and shows it as this case swallows them whole or at least McConaughey’s character. It’s interesting HBO decided to pick up a show like this given the last few years in their choice of programming. It feels a bit like it belongs on FX rather than the premium cabler. The premise certainly sounds interesting, though and maybe given the cast and the freedom the network will give it more room to maximize the grit.
True Detectives is set to premiere in January 2014 and set for an eight episode run. Will you be tuning in for McConaughey’s first major TV role and Harrelson’s return to television?
