In January, HBO will premiere a new series called True Detective. It stars Matthews McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as Louisiana detectives Rust Cohle and Martin Hart (yep, Rust Cohle), who through flashbacks convey the story of a bizarre, ritualistic murder case from nearly 20 years ago.
If that doesn’t hook you and you need more convincing, HBO has just released the second trailer for the series and it’s pretty great.
If you want more, HBO has an interestingly mysterious little site for the series. It’s called DarknessBecomesYou.com. Yeah, I’m looking forward to this one.
Here’s HBO’s full synopsis:
In 2012, Louisiana State Police Detectives Rust Cohle and Martin Hart are brought in to revisit a homicide case they worked in 1995. As the inquiry unfolds in present day through separate interrogations, the two former detectives narrate the story of their investigation, reopening unhealed wounds, and drawing into question their supposed solving of a bizarre ritualistic murder in 1995. The timelines braid and converge in 2012 as each man is pulled back into a world they believed they’d left behind. In learning about each other and their killer, it becomes clear that darkness lives on both sides of the law.
Oh, and you can also watch the show’s first trailer.
