HBO may have devoted this past Sunday to its big 'Boardwalk Empire' season 4 sendoff "Farewell Daddy Blues," though upcoming 2014 miniseries 'True Detective' made a valiant attempt to steal the show with its latest full length trailer. Borrowing a page or two from '28 Days Later,' are you ready for the moodiest preview yet of Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey's new series?
Among HBO's 2014 offerings, we've kept our eye most on that Cary Fukunaga-directed 'True Detective,' more for its dark and dreary drama than its all-stair pairing of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. Apart from the most recent teasers, HBO has released a new invitation to the set video that lets McConaughey and Harrelson put in their own words what will have people talking about the project.
Among the many 2014 HBO premieres, we're increasingly excited for Cary Fukunaga's dark Woody Harrelson-Matthew McConaughey drama, 'True Detective,' which today offers an orgy of evidence to its quality. Along with a brand-new trailer that debuted with last night's 'Boardwalk Empire,' HBO offers up character profiles on either lead, a creepily ominous new poster, and even a scene from 'True Detective' to come.
HBO's 'Boardwalk Empire' and 'Eastbound & Down' seasons always manage to ease the long journey from 'Game of Thrones' and 'True Blood' each year, but the pay cable network is going all-out this January. Not only will 'Girls' premiere season 3 in January with a double dose of Hannah Horvath, but so too will moody A-list crime drama 'True Detective' and buzzing Jonathan Groff dramedy 'Looking.'
FX's 'American Horror Story: Coven' may have the market cornered on unsettling Louisiana-style drama, but HBO's star-studded 2014 drama 'True Detective' may yet give the 'Coven' a run for its money. The new Woody Harrelson-Matthew McConaughey crime drama directed by Cary Fukunaga has released five brand-new teasers from the series, each as moody and dark as the ones that precede it.
HBO's 'Boardwalk Empire' season 4 premiere "New York Sour" may have been the toast of the premium cable network on Sunday night, but among all the popping corks, the first trailer for the 2014 Woody Harrelson-Matthew McConaughey dark crime thriller 'True Detective' emerged from the depths. Are you ready for a first look at the gritty new A-lister drama?
This past week we've seen HBO get its house on order for 2014, declaring 'True Blood' to air its final season next summer while negotiations continue on returning Aaron Sorkin to 'The Newsroom' for another cycle. Now, one of HBO's big-ticket 2014 items has been given a firm premiere, as the Matthew McConaughey-Woody Harrelson starring 'True Detective' will arrive in January, with a full trailer this Sunday!
How does HBO convince you to keep subscribing now that 'Game of Thrones' is on break? By letting you know that they have a crime series starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson and directed by Cary Fukunaga on the way! The first teaser for 'True Detective' doesn't give us a plot or much footage, but it sells a mood so creepy and mysterious that we just know we'll tune in.
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?
It almost sounds too good to be true, doesn't it? Two of America's most charming Southern-flavored actors doing a buddy-detective story on cable? Perhaps an oversimplification, but for now it seems like HBO has won the bidding war to the high-profile new drama 'True Detective,' written by 'The Killing's own Nic Pizzolato.
