True Detective is an American television drama series created and written by Nic Pizzolatto and directed by Cary Fukunaga. The series premiered on premium cable network HBO January 12, 2014; the first season will consist of 8 episodes.

Created with an anthology format in mind, each season will feature a different cast of characters and story. Season 1 focuses on two detectives, Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson) and Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) as they end up crossing paths while hunting a serial killer in Louisiana for 17 years. The series will feature multiple timelines to trace the hunt of the two detectives, jumping in time from the first case opening in 1995 to 2012, when the case is reopened.
