TRUE DETECTIVE Repeats Season One Beginning 09.14

Consider the following a schedule reminder about our great Sunday night offerings. As we know BOARDWALK EMPIRE has launched its final season in the 9:00pm ET hour. However, the 10:00pm  ET hour was vacated upon the finale of THE LEFTOVERS and now needs something. As we have alluded before TRUE DETECTIVE will repeat its first season in that time slot. HBO whipped up an ad for it if you haven’t seen it.   Now surely everyone who has wanted to see Cohle & Hart tackle a creepy crime has already done so via the channel, the website and/or the DVD.

TRUE DETECTIVE May Use “Fast & Furious” Director Justin Lin

TRUE DETECTIVE May Use “Fast & Furious” Director Justin Lin

Disappointingly there is not 100% confirmation here, but Deadline is reporting that Justin Lin is in talks to direct at least the first two episodes of Season Two of TRUE DETECTIVE. If you are not familiar with Mr. Lin he is a director/producer of a few movies in the Fast & Furious franchise and is also noted as the executive producer/director for the new Fall Show Scorpion for CBS. Assuredly, creator Nic Pizzolatto handpicked Lin to get TRUE DETECTIVE’s new season underway and other directors will be announced for further episodes. Now Mr. Lin has experience of filming and being around fast cars. This might be a stretch to say this...

True Detective Season 2 Air Date Window Shifts

True Detective Season 2 Air Date Window Shifts

Many of you have been patiently waiting for news about the HBO 2014 sleeper hit True Detective. Ever since season 1 panned up into the stars and faded to black the biggest question on all of our minds has been “when will True Detective season 2 air?” Normally HBO is very consistent with their premiere dates. A series that premieres in the spring such as Game of Thrones will continue to air in subsequent springs each and every year. Many times we’ve even been able to predict the exact Sunday that an HBO series would premiere on well before they’ve made it official.  It’s like clockwork, in a way. But True...

TRUE DETECTIVE’s Pizzolatto Accused of Plagiarism

TRUE DETECTIVE’s Pizzolatto Accused of Plagiarism

TRUE DETECTIVE has had a lot of positive news all about casting rumors and Emmy nominations, but lately some negative news surfaced when series creator Nic Pizzolatto was called out for plagiarism. You’ve got to go back to the scenes of Rust Cohle’s “interrogation” where his dark, nihilistic philosophy comes to the surface. The accusations state that a number of lines in those speeches were lifted from a writer of by the name of Thomas Ligotti. Mr. L is a prolific horror writer that seems to know his way around dark themes. If you want to check specific line for line comparisons between the two writers and formulate an opinion...

Vince Vaughn in Talks to Play True Detective Villain

Vince Vaughn in Talks to Play True Detective Villain

Though nothing is 100% confirmed we’re hearing multiple reports that Vince Vaughn (yes, that Vince Vaughn) is in talks to play a lead role in HBO’s second season of True Detective. There are supposedly four “lead roles” to be had for the new season. The first two are rumored to be played by Collin Farrel and Taylor Kitsch.  A third is supposedly a strong willed woman (the latest rumor for her is Mad Men’s Elizabeth Moss) while this fourth role will be more of a villain.  Vaughn’s character may even have some ties to the mafia but little is known or altogether confirmable at this point. Before you...

The Next Round of TRUE DETECTIVE Rumors

The Next Round of TRUE DETECTIVE Rumors

Now we know that supposedly any day now HBO will announce something official regarding the second season of the detective anthology series by Nic Pizzolatto. This writer thought it would be fun to let the rumors fly one more time before then. We have not been poking around the rumor mill and listing every little item that has been speculated, but since Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain’s name have been dropped other noted names have been bandied about as well. How about Joaquin Phoenix, Christian Bale, Michael Fassbender and/or Josh Brolin? Cate Blanchett also surfaced as a good possibility. The latest buzz has touched many sites including...

True Detective Season 2 cast to be announced next week?

True Detective Season 2 cast to be announced next week?

As if the amazing plethora of 20 HBO Emmy nominations (including True Detective‘s own McConaughey and Harrelson) wasn’t enough good news, we have more. Earlier today at the Television Critics Association press tour, HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said of True Detective Season 2; “The two scripts we have… I hate to jinx it… they are more exciting than the first season. [Creator Nic Pizzolatto] is an incredibly talented writer. And he’s blown us away with the first two episodes.” On top of that, he confirmed that casting announcements could come as soon as next week. Teasing that we...

True Detective Season 1 DVD/Blu-ray Review

True Detective Season 1 DVD/Blu-ray Review

First off this writer offers an apology for getting this review out so late. If you have wanted your own copy of the highly touted Season One of TRUE DETECTIVE surely you would have snapped it up by now. In fact you can order it right this second for about 40 bucks.  The reason for the delay is simple: HBOWatch was not privy to an advance copy so we had to wait until the street date. Then when it arrived, I admit I could have rushed straight into it but, I selfishly wanted to marathon all eight episodes again instead of just jumping into the new content. Well, that late night binge is over and I can say, even though I knew the story...

Nic Pizzolatto Thinks TRUE DETECTIVE Will Be A Short Lived Series

Nic Pizzolatto Thinks TRUE DETECTIVE Will Be A Short Lived Series

Solo showrunner and writer for the TRUE DETECTIVE series, Nic Pizzolatto, held court up in Canada recently at an event called the Banff World Media Festival and dropped some bombshells on those excited over the continuation of his concept. He informed those in attendance that the first two episodes of Season Two are written and that some sketchy ideas have surfaced that he will save for a possible third season. What chances the series has beyond that however, does not look promising. He stated, “Every season, I’m essentially creating a brand new TV show. It can’t have any growing pains like a regular first season. If it works it has...

McConaughey Open to Returning for Season 2

McConaughey Open to Returning for Season 2

Never say never. That seems like a rule that True Detective Rust Cohle might live by, right? Well Matthew McConaughey, the actor who masterfully brought that character to life on HBO’s air this year may be having second thoughts. We’ve reported several times that True Detective was, and always has been planned as an anthology series much like American Horror Story where new characters, settings and stories take over each year. So it stood to reason, and was also confirmed several times by show runners and the actors themselves, that McConaughey and Harrelson wouldn’t return for True Detective season 2. That having been...

True Detective Season 2 Casting to Begin Next Month with THREE Leads

True Detective Season 2 Casting to Begin Next Month with THREE Leads

Are you tired of hearing about every single True Detective season 2 tidbit coming out of Hollywood yet?  Good because we’re absolutely not and will always bring you the latest info on your favorite shows. The word from Nic Pizzolato, writer and creator of the show is that, despite multiple casting rumors the show will not begin casting “in earnest” until next month. Speaking on a radio show called To The Best of Our Knowledge Nic said this: “Right now, we’re working with three leads. It takes place in California. Not Los Angeles, but some of the much lesser-known venues of California and we’re going to try...

A Rumor Dismissed – Jessica Chastain in TRUE DETECTIVE

A Rumor Dismissed –  Jessica Chastain in TRUE DETECTIVE

Here at HBOWatch we try not to go to deep into rumors. You can track down many angles that lead to dead ends and pull your hair out sifting through it all. But, the speculation on what will Season 2 of TRUE DETECTIVE be all about has been quite fun. So, with that how about the rumor that Jessica Chastain, of Zero Dark Thirty fame, is landing a lead role in the second season? Now, we are fully aware that this is last week’s news, but since it was out of the rumor mill we were just going to let it go by, but monitor the news closely. We have not, unsurprisingly, been given a confirmation of her casting, but rather a dismissal of her...
