Last night HBO dropped a tonofnew trailers on us. But most shocking to maybe some of our less informed viewers was a teaser for the new HBO crime series TRUE DETECTIVE. We’ve been updating our readers about the series since last year but only now do we finally get a glimpsed of the fast-tracked series. Take a look for yourself:
UPDATE: HBO has kindly asked us to remove this video and we, of course have complied. We hope the OFFICIAL version makes its way to the internet soon. Apologies to HBO and to our readers.
UPDATE 2: We can confirm that the digital version of this trailer will drop THIS FRIDAY! Sorry for the confusion on this.
UPDATE 3: It’s up! And the official version no less:
At first we honestly thought this was just another promo for True Blood Season 6, right? I mean the bayou, the fonts, the music even. But no this is the first VERY brief glimmer from HBO’s next crime series starring Matthew Mcconaughey and Woody Harrelson! It did confirm for us that the series won’t be appearing until 2014, a date that makes a ton of sense given HBO’s very full fall schedule that includes Boardwalk Empire, Eastbound and Down, Hello Ladies and even The Newsroom trickling into September.
We’ll keep you posted with all the latest, as always but we’re extremely excited about this one. Will it be a new THE WIRE for HBO, the last crime series to hit their premium airwaves? With the star power behind TRUE DETECTIVE we can imagine great things coming your way in 2014.
