HBO Teasers: ‘Eastbound & Down’ Season 4,’ ‘True Detective,’ Larry David and More!
The HBO bounty continues! Along with new sneak peeks from ‘True Blood,’ ‘The Newsroom‘ and ‘Boardwalk Empire,’ the ‘Game of Thrones‘ season 3 finale brought about new teasers for the fourth (and final) season of ‘Eastbound & Down,’ Stephen Merchant’s ‘Hello Ladies,’ an unrecognizable Larry David and Jon Hamm in the HBO film ‘Clear History,’ and even event series ‘True Detective.’ So, which are we most looking forward to seeing?
The first look into ‘Eastbound & Down’ doesn’t offer anything in the way of new footage, but does make a nice riff on the recent ‘Game of Thrones’ oversaturation of late. Surprisingly brief, however, was our first look at Stephen Merchant’s LA-based ‘Hello Ladies,’ which also debuts on September 29, but likely has a bit more in the can from production.
A bit more forthcoming of footage was HBO’s first look at August 10 original film ‘Clear History,’ which features a barely recognizable ‘Seinfeld’ creator Larry David as a former marketing executive. Also joining him for the affair are ‘Mad Men”s Jon Hamm, ‘Eastbound & Down”s Danny McBride and ‘SNL‘ vet Bill Hader in a story about the next generation of electric cars.
Finally, SpoilerTV caught the first look at upcoming crime serial ‘True Detective,’ whose initial teaser looks more like ‘True Blood‘ credits without the music, but stokes our interest nonetheless. Starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, ‘True Detective’ follows two detectives, Rust Cohle (McConaughey) and Martin Hart (Harrelson), whose lives intertwine during a 17-year hunt for a Louisiana serial killer. Their investigation of a gruesome murder in 1995 will be intercut with testimony from the detectives in 2012, when the case was reopened. Each season will feature new characters and a new central mystery.
