The southern gothic neo-noir centers on a duo of Louisiana State Detectives brought in to revisit a homicide case they worked on two decades ago. As the present day investigation unfolds, bizarre clues resurface from the original murder, which the detectives supposedly solved in 1995, and the line between good and evil, of course, gets blurred.
“True Detective” is written and created by “The Killing” showrunner Nic Pizzolatto and directed by Fukunaga. Costars include Michelle Monaghan, Kevin Dunn and Michael Potts. It is slated for January 2014 on HBO.
