I know we just named our ten most anticipated new shows of fall 2013, but when can we start discussing our most anticipated new shows of the midseason? Because HBO's upcoming drama True Detective already has a spot reserved high on that list. We're even more excited for it after seeing the new trailer, which HBO released tonight.
True Detective stars a pair of guys who probably don't wear shoes that often, Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, as detectives investigating a case involving a serial killer in Louisiana. The eight-episode series will follow the initial investigation and the re-opening of the case 17 years later via a series of back-and-forth time-jumps, and yeah, I'm pretty excited about it. Future seasons, should True Detective get any, would switch up the cast and locale à la American Horror Story.
True Detective premieres in January.
