True Detective - HBO goes cop thriller
It's not just TV...

There are a number of reasons why HBO make such memorableTV - from their ability to hire top drawer talent in front of and behind the camera to the fact that they can present adult material without any worry about networks. It's great TV, but then it would be disappointing if it wasn't.

Take their latest announced show, True Detective. It stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson and that information alone is enough to put it ahead of most competiting programmes.

Set in 1995, the eight episode mini series will trace the investigations by two Louisiana detectives into a serial killer case over the course of 17 years. Multiple perspectives and time-lines will come together to tell the story, and that less than conventional structure is hinted at in this first trailer.

I would like to see this now.

The show completed shooting in June 2013, from a concept and script by novelist NicPizzolatto and was directed byCaryFukunaga - best known for his 2011 take on Jane Eyre. The cast also includes Kevin Dunn, Michelle Monaghan (remember her!?) and Elizabeth Reaser.

True Detective will debut on HBO in January 2014. Look for it on Sky Atlantic soon thereafter.
