Check out these two new promos for HBO's True Detective starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson
What the hell am I going to watch after something like BREAKING BAD? There's several options. I've got some shows on the back burner, and then there are promising new ones like TRUE DETECTIVE.
The HBO series is a drama directed by Cary Fukunaga (JANE EYRE, SIN NOMBRE) and stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. The last trailer gave us more insight into what we were in-store for. These two new promos for the show deliver on the same level, but don't give too much away. The focus on the first anthology (8 episodes) will have both detectives on the hunt for a serial killer. You'll notice in one of the previews that a little girl is the centerpiece, so I'm wondering if this killer is exclusively kidnapping children or if his victims are more random. The atmosphere of this show reminds me of another HBO series CARNIVALE. Man, do I miss that show.
"The world is a veil and the face that you wear is not your own."
In 2012, Louisiana State Police Detectives Rust Cohle and Martin Hart are brought in to revisit a homicide case they worked in 1995. As the inquiry unfolds in present day through separate interrogations, the two former detectives narrate the story of their investigation, reopening unhealed wounds, and drawing into question their supposed solving of a bizarre ritualistic murder in 1995. The timelines braid and converge in 2012 as each man is pulled back into a world they believed they'd left behind. In learning about each other and their killer, it becomes clear that darkness lives on both sides of the law.
TRUE DETECTIVE comes to HBO on January 2014.
