We’re creeping up on the premiere of HBO’s True Detective, an anthology drama series which stars Woody Harrelson, Matthew McConaughey, and Michelle Monaghan.
The season will follow the struggles of two detectives as they hunt down a deranged serial killer in Louisiana, while dealing with their own personal demons. Were I not already sold on that stellar cast, the clips from the trailers would’ve pulled me in – clips which promise a dark, twisted, violent and hopefully gripping tale.
A new promo for True Detective, “Tested,” has been released featuring Monaghan’s character Maggie Hart musing about Rust Cohle (McConaughey) and her husband Martin Hart (Harrelson).
True Detective premieres January 12 on HBO. You can watch a full trailer for the first season below.
