     I do not post that often on television programs or series, but this new HBO series True Detective looks too good not to at least post the trailer. It stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as  Louisiana State detectives, Martin Hart and Rust Cohle, who are brought back to revisit and be interviewed in 2012 over a case they worked back in the mid 90s. I do not know if this will be a limited series, especially since both actors work frequently in film, but HBO's website states that this is season 1 so who knows. I do not care. This looks incredibly dark and moody. Also, it appears to have some top notch performances from two of the best actors out there. McConaughey just continues to make smart, challenging decisions and this looks to be another wise choice. The 8 episode series was created by Nic Pizzolatto and directed by Cary Fukunaga (Sin Nombre). True Detective also stars Michelle Monaghan, Tory Kittles, Kevin Dunn and Michael Potts. Series begins on January 12, 2014. Love the use of The Black Angels "Young Men Dead" and the Lone Star tall boys.
