HBO recently debuted the trailer for its new drama True Detective starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as two detectives whose lives collide after being assigned to a chilling and morbid case.
The series, debuting in January 2014 with eight episodes, will follow Rust Cohle (McConaughey) and Martin Hart (Harrelson) over a time frame of 17 years as they hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana. It will feature present-day testimony and flashbacks to the investigation, and as McConaughey says in the trailer, the story has "a monster at the end of it."
Should the show go past one season, True Detective will take a page from the American Horror Story playbook and feature a different case for each installment.
Michelle Monaghan (Mission: Impossible), Kevin Dunn (Transformers) and Alexandra Daddario (Percy Jackson) also star.
