'True Detective' premieres on HBO tonight, starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as two detectives who are teamed up to solve the case of a ritualistic serial killer in Louisiana. Cary Fukunaga ('Jane Eyre') directed all eight episodes of the first season, which vacillates between 1985 and present-day, as an eerily similar killing has taken place and the retired detectives are called upon for their help once again. This moody, cinematic procedural shows a hell of a lot of restraint for a network that's often known for pushing boundaries.
We're just days away from the January 12 premiere of HBO's hotly anticipated killer drama 'True Detective,' but even after the countless trailers and TV spots we've already seen, there's always room for more Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. Plus, what's to come when HBO revamps the plot, cast and setting for a potential second season?
We've finally crossed the hump into 2014, wherein our beloved TV will return to us to sustain the long, dark and increasingly cold nights. And while 'Community' will lead the charge with tonight's premiere (watch it, ya turkeys!), HBO's 'True Detective' has us the most primed for its premiere with a series of recent trailers that cerebrally explore its leading men in Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey.
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.
