HBO releases ‘True Detective’ Trailer

Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey Team Up

“You don’t pick your parents and you don’t pick your partner.  A smart guy who’s steady is hard to find.  You know, I was steady.  Rust, was smart.”

True Detective, HBO’s upcoming mystery series, follows two detectives, pessimist Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) and family man Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson), on a 17-year hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana.  The series follows the relationship between the detectives over this 17-year period, starting with the first murders in 1995.  In the trailer, we see flashbacks to each of their past lives and early work on the investigation.  Towards the end, a more recent, ragged version of McConaughey’s character is revealed saying, “like a lot of dreams, there’s a monster at the end of it.”  Oooooh.

Watch the trailer below.

Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey Team Up

Sunday night before the Game of Thrones finale (read the RPW recap here) we got our first look at the new crime series True Detectives.  First of all, I about came off the couch in excitement.  Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, talk about a dream team!  Secondly, can you imagine the fun they’re having on set?!

True Detectives follows two detectives, pessimist Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) and family man Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson), on a 17-year hunt for a serial killer.  The show follows the relationship between the detectives over this 17-year period, starting with the first murders in 1995.  The eight episode series starts early 2014.  Is it too early to start a count down?  I’m gonna say no.  Check out the teaser below.
